Bakeries in the Catonsville area?
I just recently moved to Catonsville (between Rolling Rd and the 40) and I just wanted to know if there's any bakeries (Asian or non-Asian) within a 5-mile radius of where I'm currently located?
I know the H Mart on Rolling Rd has Momo Bakery inside their store, but I don't know what days or times it is supplied. It always looks like their stuff is on rotation. I also know there's a boulangerie (sp?) across from the Lotte Plaza in Ellicot City. Anyone know if these two places are any good?
Personally, I don't like Korean baked goods. A bit too sweet for me. If you're willing to venture a bit further south on 295, there's a Cakes Plus in Laurel that offers great cup cakes.
I don't know if you are looking for bread or pastries... I also live in Catonsville and it is a wasteland as far as bread goes... if you are seeking pastries oddly enough the Double T diner has a pastry counter that is pretty good.
I grew up in Catonsville and can't think of any great bakeries off the top of my head. If you're just looking for loaves of bread, Scittino's is OK. It's more of a deli/pizza joint but they do sell fresh bread. If you're more on the pastry tip, I would try heading to Fischer's Bakery in old town Ellicott City. It's nothing fancy but they do the basics well.
We live in Arbutus, just south of Catonsville, and we get all our bread from the MOM's store in Jessup/Columbia East, which is just 10 minutes down I-95 at the intersection of Routes 1 and 175. We buy the bread they get delivered daily from the Spring Mill Bread Company, which uses all-natural ingredients. It costs about $4.50 for a 2-lb loaf. Check out www.springmillbread.com for more details.
There's also a place on Route 40 just west of 29 called The Breadery, which is slightly closer to Catonsville. I've never been there, but they're also known for their high quality, all-natural breads. You can find their product list and baking schedule at www.thebreadery.com.
