Where can I find Fresh Baked Baguette in the EV? Any bakeries you can recommend?

    I would also love to see replies on this one. I live betw B & C, and lately I've been getting the frozen, par-baked baguette from fresh direct because I just haven't been able to find anything in the area. It's not as good as Amy's, but it's a warm, crusty baguette; much better than the grocery store variety you would find at Key Foods.

      Yeah, I live on B between 3 and 4. Key Food bread is the best I've found so far. Can you give me some more info on Fresh Direct or Amy's? Thanks

        Both East Village Cheese and the market on St. Marks downstairs from Grand Sichuan (Saint Marks Market, maybe?) sell Balthazar baguettes. It may not be baked on the premises, but it's delivered daily.

            On the LES, Falai Pannetteria has good bread, and Saxelby Cheesemongers in the Essex Market carries Sullivan Street Bakery bread.

            I was in Moishe's on 2nd Ave. & 7th St. the other day and was reminded that I like the bread there. No baguettes, but good whole wheat & other breads.
