Excellent local bread in State College

Perhaps this is not news to the few other Happy Valley residents on this board, but I just recently bought the most delicious bread (it was a German-style rye, straight out of the oven) at Gemelli. I usually get my bread at Wegmans, but since I'm all for supporting small businesses, this may be it from now on. Give it a try. The staff is super-friendly -- they actually gave me the loaf for free just to try --, and it would be a shame if they had to close because they can't stand up to the umpteen supermarkets around.

They will also make any bread you ask them for, which is pretty awesome.

  1. As a State College resident, I love the post! I have been waiting to try Gemelli, but have yet to get around to it. I will definitely be making an adventure there soon. Thanks!

      Well, I just got another loaf -- this time, it's a 'seedy boule' -- very nice crust, fluffy interior, whole wheat / rye mix with a variety of seeds (poppy, sesame, sunflower). Excellent.
