Our Bread

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.

The varieties listed below are available for purchase in all four Avenue Bread cafes, and also at select local grocery stores

Artisan Classics

Rosemary

The flavor of fresh rosemary and with a superb crust

Sourdough

With a 25 + year old starter levain this bread brings the complexity and that superb sourdough tang.

Avenue French

A great all-around bread with a consistent crumb and chewy texture
