Natural sourdough starter, a 30-hour rise, and plenty of hydration come together to create a complex loaf. We are excited to be part of the resurgence of wholesome bread baking across the country.

Our breads are available at our bakery and coffee bar in downtown Millburn. In addition to whole loaves, our café has a daily selection of pastries, buns, healthful grain and green salads, sandwiches, and coffee. We are inspired by our love of travel, experience working in Europe and Israel, as well as our desire to bring beautiful food to the area.

Your body requires a lot of water to be healthy, and your bread does too! High hydration makes for an airy and tender interior with a caramelized, crusty exterior.

Sourdoughs take time to make. That three simple ingredients - flour, water, and salt - can produce such amazing results is truly a wonder.

Our ingredients are as important as our process. Free-range, organic eggs, King Arthur flour, Callebaut chocolate, and organic produce when possible.

From opening until around noon you'll see our baking team working in our open kitchen, mixing, shaping, and baking off breads.

Natural sourdoughs rely on a slow fermentation process that allows the bread to develop in ways you can't find with store-bought or mass-produced bread. This fermentation process yields a chewy texture, crisp crust and amazing aromas, with an added benefit of partially breaking down gluten.
