Italian Bread Bakeries in Atlanta?

turfguy Apr 30, 2007 05:50 PM

I am looking for a good Italian bread bakery in the Atlanta area. One that bakes in authentic brick or pizza ovens would be extra special. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Weez is correct East 48 Street Market is awesome. Try their cheesecake too. It is honestly the best cheesecake ever.

        I don't think the IFM baked goods are particularly Italian.

          Is anyone familar with the Bread Garden on Amsterdam Ave NE? I hear they have good Italian breads and the owner bakes bread for many resturants in Atlanta. Any information?

            Bread Garden can sometimes offer awesome bread, served up with the attitude du jour of the owner (not a plus). They do sell to restaurants (which is true of plenty of good Atlanta bakeries). I'd commend their croissants and some breads, but not rave over the breads. There is no true Italian style bread in Atlanta to my view (as a Philly transplant). That said, you can't beat Star Provisions baguettes with proscuitto and reggiano and their foccaccio is fabulous. In Va. Highlands, Alon's does excellent semolina and ciabatta. Don't miss his pizza (cheap and fabu) on the weekends or his bruschetta during the week.

      Their website says "hearth baked" - East 48th Street Market in Dunwoody. Some of the best bread I've ever had!
