Bakery

We take a lot of pride in our bakery’s reputation. You can’t find bread like ours anywhere around (people tell us they travel miles and miles just to get it). Our artisanal breads are baked with honest, wholesome ingredients – local and organic whenever possible. Each day, our bakers start with flour, salt, yeast, and water: simple ingredients. Abandoning new-fangled notions like additives, dyes, and preservatives, we've taken bread baking back to the basics. Perfectly simple and perfectly delicious – the only thing extra we've added is love.

Why do our stores smell so good in the morning? We bake our from-scratch cookies, scones, and muffins on-site, starting in the wee hours.

Beyond baguettes and brioche, we bake gorgeous cakes for all occasions, and our pastry pros custom decorate cakes to order (before your eyes!). Need H-A-P-P-Y B-I-R-T-H-D-A-Y E-L-O-I-S-E ! on your cake today? We can do that. : )

New Pi Kitchen Lead Jason’s Sourdough Culture

Sourdough is a live culture, sensitive to natural yeasts in the air. “People put a lot of romance into the age of their starter,” Jason explains, “but it’s actually only as good as the last time you fed it.” Our sourdough culture started in 2004 with grapes from Jason’s mother-in-law’s yard. Feeding our culture includes flour, water, and consistency: someone has to come in every single day to feed it (yes, Christmas Day included!). More here >
