Red Hen Bread

While most of the business at this tony bakery comes courtesy of local restaurants, the storefront puts out more than two dozen daily baked breads for off-the-street customers. Loaves range from the humble baguette to ornate, herb-infused varieties and cost less than five dollars. Mornings see major commuter frenzy, as people line up for a cup of coffee and one of the muffins, brownies or other sweets Red Hen also sells. The place smells sensational--everything is made on the premises or in their own bake house. Each loaf of bread sold is wrapped in butcher paper and tied in red twine for added days-gone-by effect.
