Light and flaky layers of buttery dough with a dollop of house made sweet cream cheese filling, topped with wild blueberries or a rotating selection of fruit.
A staple at any French bakery, but can take a lifetime to perfect. Did we mention it’s buttery? Did we mention it’s so light it defies gravity?
Take two sticks of premium Swiss chocolate and gently roll them in our croissant dough. The result is a French classic, also known as pain au chocolat, and an all-time favorite of ours.
A croissant is slathered in almond paste and double baked to perfection. This thing of beauty will entice you to have another, and soon.
Chocolate Almond Croissant
See above— start with a chocolate croissant instead of plain croissant and you’re half way to heaven.
Bacon and Cheddar Croissant
A Wisconsin twist on the French bakery staple of ham and gruyere. Everything is better with bacon.

An entire meal in the palm of your hand. Eggs, smoked bacon, aged cheddar, green onions, and stone ground mustard come together for an addictive and filling treat.

Homely and rustic, but once you taste it you will understand its power. Airy and earthy from slow fermentation, with a touch of extra virgin olive oil.
Our take on a rustic country loaf, with a blend of wheat, whole wheat, and rye flours. Tangy with a delicious crust. (Available Wednesdays and Thursdays only)
Cranberry Walnut Sourdough
Toasted walnuts & cranberries in our country sourdough with whole wheat and a touch of rye. The perfect accompaniment to aged cheese, or toasted for breakfast.
Seeds galore! Sesame, sunflower, millet, poppy, and rolled oats in our hearty country sourdough. A staff favorite that complements meats and cheeses or a simple spread of peanut butter or Nutella.
Pain de Mie
The artisan version of classic soft white sandwich bread. Enriched with butter and milk for a tender interior and a soft crust, this is ideal for childhood classics like grilled cheese, pb&j, or buttered toast. Terrific for French toast too!

A classic white sourdough batard with a touch of whole wheat. This bread is naturally leavened with our own sour culture.

Colorful, tender almond meringue cookies filled with a variety of amazing fillings including chocolate ganaches and fruit preserves.
You may wonder how we get so much chocolate into this square...
A classic topped with incredible cream cheese frosting.
Bouchon & Financiers
Mini tea cakes. Small in size...big in flavor. Bouchons are cork sized chocolate bites with chocolate chips. Financiers are rich and tender almond bars, named for their resemblance to little gold bars.
(From OPEN - 2:00 PM ) We call them "sandwiches". But, really, they are finely crafted dishes showcasing seasonal and local ingredients alongside our amazing bread. Served with a salad made from Growing Power greens (or other side as noted).
