Originally a supplier to restaurants and deli counters, they now sell direct (and fresh!).
Owned by the same people that own Tejas and Goodfellows and manage Bar Abilene.
You can buy their baked goods at these restaurants and at Marhall Fields Marketplace downtown, but the store front is in the same building as the bakery, so the goods are as fresh as possible.
Almost everything they sell is vegetarian, and most of the breads are vegan. Vegan pastry selection is small.

Although they do have one vegan option, there is little that is amazing about this store, save the pastries and other sweets and savories. They're quite good, and made fresh! (There's usually a vegetarian pizza or focaccia, and always a vegetarian sandwich.) Unfortunately the breads are almost all frozen, and then thawed the night before, having been made in days prior by the wholesale workers. The employees will tell you that the bread is fresh, but that's rarely the case.
I would give this place a much higher rating if they had more vegan options! The Chocolate Muffin is to-die-for, but it has been the only vegan option every time I've gone. It's nice to know chances are good they'll always have the really good chocolate muffin - but I'd like to see what other bits of vegan heaven they could whip up if they had a little more vegan-mojo.
