Does anyone know of a good bakery in the JP area? I love going out pre-breakfast on weekends and picking up a warm, fresh loaf of bread. Are there any places that sound like they cater to my kind?
It's so sad that we don't have anything like that since Today's Bread closed a while ago. JP Licks was supposed to get their croissant recipe and some other things from them, but that never happened (don't know where they got their muffin top recipe). There might be something in Roslindale.
I just moved from JP and miss it so much! The Idian restaurant on Centre Street used to be an amazing bakery. Right now there is not much in the way of bakeries in the neighborhood, and no place that has fresh, hot bread. However, you can get some really great loaves at the Harvest Co-op on Centre St. and at City Feed and Supply on Boylston (right near the Stoneybrook T Stop. Look for Iggy's brand-- a local company that specializes in artisnal bread. City Feed is a great, locally owned place with a constantly changing selection. The owners are cool and interesting-- definitely worth a trip!
Well, since nobody can come up with a JP bakery, I will give you two of my favorites in the South End, just a hop skip and a jump away. First, Flour bakery on Washington Street has everything to make a Sunday morning sing - including some great bread. Also the Nashoba Brook Bakery on Columbus Avenue (formerly Kettle Cafe) has some great breads and assorted pastries.
Best of luck!
Fornax, if I'm not mistaken. It's in Roslindale. (Down Hyde Park Ave a couple of miles)
I've heard high acclaim.
It was too bad they shut down "Today's Bread" in JP years ago. It was mouthwatering. Now there's no bakeries around that area.
