Artisan Bread






Traditional French

Available every day. This is a traditional bread where wheat is truly the star. Sold as a boule, batard, sandwich loaf or our well-known baguette. Ingredients: unbleached bread flour,whole wheat bread flour, salt, yeast, water.


Available every day. Our wheat bread is filled with the benefits of whole grains with just enough unbleached flour to keep it light and airy. Enjoy it as a baguette rolled in our seed mixture of flax, pumpkin, sunflower, sesame and poppy. Ingredients: whole wheat bread flour, unbleached bread flour, sourdough starter, salt, yeast, water.



At City Bakery we produce artisan breads formed by hand and baked in a hearth oven for your enjoyment. We believe in using as little yeast as possible and allowing our breads to rise slowly to create well developed loaves in the style of European bakers.


Available every day. One of our personal favorites, it means slipper in Italian because it resembles a dancer’s shoe worn in Northern Italy. It has a crisp brown crust with flour on the top and a light “airy” inside. Ingredients: unbleached bread flour, malted barley flour, salt, yeast, water, olive oil.


Available every day. Due to the ratio of unbleached vs.whole wheat flour, it is a softer bread with the benefit of a 7 grain mixture we add to the dough for added goodness and nutrition. This is a top seller at City Bakery and is available in sandwich, boule or roll shape. Ingredients: unbleached bread flour, whole wheat flour, multigrain mix (flax, sesame, corngrits, oats, sunflower seeds, cracked wheat and millet),sourdough starter, salt, yeast, water.


Available every day. Made with a starter that has been going since we began baking. This bread will have a crispy golden crust with a creamy interior and makes a great grilled cheese sandwich. Ingredients: unbleached bread flour, sourdough starter, salt, yeast, water.

Cheddar Black Pepper Sourdough

Available as a boule on Monday, Wednesday,Friday. Traditional sourdough with the addition of Vermont aged cheddar and spicy black pepper. Great in a sandwich or with a bowl of soup. Ingredients: unbleached bread flour, sourdough starter, aged Vermont cheddar, black pepper, salt, yeast, water.

Jewish Rye

Available every day. This is a true deli rye- best south of New York. This bread has a crispy crust rolled in caraway seeds with more caraway and diced onions baked inside. Ingredients: unbleached bread flour, rye sourdough starter, caraway seeds, diced onion, salt, yeast, water.

Sweet Date Oat

Available Wednesday. Another one of CB favorites, this bread is filled with sweet buttery dates and crunchy wheat berries (Wheat berries are whole uncracked grains of wheat). Ingredients: whole wheat bread flour, unbleached bread flour, deglet noor dates, oats, whole wheat berries, honey, salt, yeast, water.

Farmhouse Oatmeal

Available Monday. Loaded with 20% oats and lightly sweetened with molasses. Soft crust rolled in oats produces a soft home-style bread. Ingredients: unbleached bread flour, oats, molasses, salt, yeast, water.


Available Tuesday. Story behind the name-a man’s wife left him with only a pot of cornmeal mush on the stove. The angry husband mixed flour and yeast to the mush to create bread exclaiming Anna dam’er. Anyway, this bread has a soft crust rolled in corn grits with a sweet taste of molasses in every bite. Ingredients: unbleached bread flour, whole wheat flour, corngrits, cornmeal, molasses, salt, yeast, water.

Potato Rosemary

Available Saturday. Also originated in Italy to use leftover mashed potatoes. We use roasted red skin potatoes with some added chopped onion. The dough is brushed with olive oil before baking to create a golden brown crust and the flavor of fresh rosemary fills each slice. Ingredients: unbleached bread flour, olive oil, roasted redskin potatoes, onion, fresh rosemary, black pepper, salt, yeast, water.

Country Italian

Available Thursday. This is a variation of our outstanding ciabatta. It is essentially the same except for the amount of water we add to the dough. A perfect compliment to any Italian meal. Ingredients: unbleached bread flour, malted barley flour, salt, yeast, olive oil.


Available Friday. Challah is the traditional Sabbath bread. It is braided, enriched with eggs and sweetened with honey. Before baking, we brush the dough with an egg wash to produce the deep brown color and shine. Also makes great French toast. We offer this bread plain, topped with poppy or sesame seeds or mixed with raisins. Ingredients: unbleached bread flour, fresh eggs, canola oil, honey, salt, yeast, water.


Available every day. Another Italian favorite enriched with olive oil to keep it chewy and moist. Before baking, this bread is topped with our house made herb oil to provide great flavor with every bite. This bread is available in full or half sheet pans.
