We are a local, family-owned bakery grown out of a love of good food and quality service. We bring a little bit of European café culture where boulangeries dot the neighborhoods, to the suburbs of New Jersey.

We offer items you might find in a traditional European bakeshop, including whole sourdough loaves, viennoiserie (yeast-leavened dough and puff pastry), with a few Mediterranean surprises coming from our Israeli background.   

OUR COMMITMENT TO QUALITY
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.

But we are not only about the breads. We focus on quality ingredients, and everything in the bakery is scratch baked.  Because of this, different products will be available at different times of the day. Come at opening, and you'll find freshly brewed coffee, espresso drinks, croissant, Danish, and small breakfast sandwiches and a whole loaf waiting for you. In time for lunch, Focaccia comes out of the oven and lunch-time sandwiches and soup are available. Quiche, loaf cakes and our Babka (which has quite the following!) is available throughout the day. We also utilize our bread oven for select 'made-to-order' items that highlight our breads. 

Our menu changes regularly, in order to reflect the season at-hand.

We have worked hard to source locally and use organic ingredients wherever possible. 


SUSTAINABILITY

We take pride in the environment, and the majority of our packaging is recyclable and compostable (plant-based), including straws, clear bags, and our kraft paper products. We are proud to work with a carbon-neutral packaging company on our branded packaging, including pastry bags and hot and cold cups. 

We also help our customers recycle in our store.

GIVING BACK

We love our community and support local food shelters and food insecure organizations on a weekly basis, get involved in local fundraisers whenever possible, and are involved with a Work Readiness and Employment Engagement program for adults with disabilities through a local organization.
