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. 



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.
