Our Bakery

Our Head Bakers

With more than a few decades of combined experience, Head Baker CRAIG (L) and Assistant Bakers NICK (Mid) and MATT (R) have been an enormous part of what has made Avenue Bread so successful. Always progressing and keeping up with the increasing demand of our bread and baked goods has been one of their great strengths. We are lucky to have them!

Lead bakers Craig, Nick and Matt’s extensive baking experience can be tasted in every bite of our flavorsome baked goods and sandwiches. Avenue Bread specializes in artisan breads which are hand-formed. This ensures our bread will have a quality interior crumb. Baking our bread on a stone hearth oven gives it a crust with integrity.

 

Our pastry, savory, and dessert creations have been a favorite throughout this area for many years. Like our bread, we use real ingredients in our baked goods, and our experienced bakers hand-make and precisely bake these treats. We hope you will swing by your nearest café and reward yourself to our amazing baked goods.

Pastry Dough Lamination

Watch the process, known as lamination, from our awesome pastry baker, John. Dough laminating is what gives croissants and Danishes that flaky, buttery crust.

FACES OF AVENUE BREAD

It takes a community to grow a good business. At Avenue Bread we feel very fortunate to be part of the thriving community of Bellingham. To celebrate this we present the Faces of Avenue Bread in three sections, Our Employees, Our Vendors and Our Customers. Customers can be some of the great people we serve at our 4 cafés or they can be restaurants and grocers that buy our bread wholesale. Faces of Avenue Bread will be updated every few months. So if you believe that an Avenue Bread Vendor or Employee or Customer should be in the next Faces of Avenue Bread please let us know.
