Bread Baker: Uprise Bakery

Uprise Bakery’s breads, including classic French baguette, ancient grain, whole wheat, sourdough and country walnut, are some of the freshest you’ll find in town. The breads serve as a tasty canvas for the shop’s sandwiches, but you can also dip them in olive oil, hummus or Goatsbeard Farm fresh chèvre on one of the café’s many bread plates.
