We specialize in artisan style breads, viennoiserie (laminated pastries, such as croissants, puff cakes, etc), scones, and New York style bagels. We use unbleached and organic flours only, some are milled on premises. We use traditional methods of dough preparation, such as prolonged cold  fermentation, wild yeast leavening, slashing, and very hot baking. Most of our breads, but not all, are sourdoughs. We offer a variety bread styles from all over the world.

Our croissants are made with high fat European-style butter. We hand laminate and hand roll everything.

We offer weekly deliveries on Thursdays in Prattville and Millbrook, AL.  On Saturdays we sell at Montgomery Curb Market, located at 1004 Madison Ave, Montgomery AL 36104.

We have an online store where most of our market offerings can be purchased ahead of time. We highly encourage advance ordering, because most of the days we sell out quite early.

Our market booth is open from 9 am to 12 noon. Typically, we are sold out by 11 am, so come early to see the most bread varieties. Normally, we bake 10-13 varieties of bread, 4-5 kinds of croissants, scones, and Bostocks. Occasionally we offer bagels. We also offer some holiday special bakes, such as French style King Cake, Christmas Stollen, etc.
