H&S Bakery Outlet- Baltimore

viperlush Mar 28, 2007 10:15 AM

I have driven pass the H&S Bakery Outlet on Fleet many times but I have yet to stop in (parking can be such a hassle). Is it worth making a stop? Does anyone know their hours? I'm not usually in that area except for on weekends or weekday evenings.

Thanks!

    H & S outlet is just what you would find in your area grocery store, maybe a little cheaper but with less shelf life!!! Depends

    Do yourself a favor and head west a few blocks to Central Ave and make a left and then go about 1 block and look for Piedigrotta on your right ....

      I was there today and didn't see the hours. There was a wide variety of the same kinds of packaged breads we buy in the supermarket, some fresh rolls and loaves, pies. Prices were VERY cheap. Shelf life didn't matter to me because I was buying a loaf of rye to toss in the freezer.

        So basically there is nothing special about it? They just have the same stuff that they sell at the grocery store but cheaper?

          Yup, as far as I could tell. I'd never seen quite an assortment of Boston cream pies like that at the supermarket, but otherwise, these are supermarket brands with a few fresh unsliced loaves. When I say cheap, I mean cheap: We bought three loaves for a dollar. For the five minutes we were in there, we parked in the bank parking lot next door, which I suppose was against the rules.

          H&S Bakery in fact supplies many of the supermarkets with their packaged baked goods. The outlet has the same items at substantially lower prices. H&S also supplies the bread marketed under certain national brand names. If you want to stock your freezer with marble rye, it's hard to beat three loaves for a dollar.

          There are also a few cakes and cookies, including some supplied by other bakeries.

          Piedigrotta is a very nice little bakery on the edge of Little Italy, but it is not in the same category. Only a bread snob would suggest it as an alternative to this place.

          Parking is not a problem, as the outlet has it's own parking lot adjacent to the building.

            C'mon Lettuce, why the cheap shot????

              He was a bit out of line to call you a bread snob, but his basic point is a good one. this is a thread about a bottom-dollar bread outlet -- not Balto's finest bakeries.

              If the thread was about artisan bakeries in Baltimore, what would you think if someone said, "Hey, check out H&S Bakery -- the marble rye is three for a buck?"
