Looking for good bread without having to travel into Boston. Are there any good bakeries on the north shore?

            Second Alexandra's. The coble loaf is excellent but they do run out so good to call in your order.

            Iggy's in Marblehead has been closed for several years. You can still get a limited selection of their breads at Shubie's in Marblehead and Whole Foods in Swampscott. A & J King's breads are also at both of those stores. In all honesty, Iggy's doesn't even approach the quality of A & J King. Give it a try -- you won't be disappointed.

              Annarosa's in Newburyport has excellent bread. They're only open Wednesday - Saturday.
