This artisan bread shop specializes in loaves baked daily along with breakfast pastries, individual flatbread pizzas and sandwiches. Step up to the counter and order a coffee cake or brioche with coffee from Philly-based La Colombe. A retail section offers imported and domestic cheese by the pound, fig spread and other imported foods that complement bread and cheese. In warmer months, stake out a spot on the patio which features a fountain and garden; customers can grab a complimentary handful of fresh herbs to take home on their way out. Owner Bill Millholland, a culinary chef and instructor who has worked in New York City, Chicago and Tuscany, plans to keep his love for teaching alive by offering bread-baking classes and parties.
