I bough a bread at Massimo's on Saturday. A Ciabatta. They wrap it in a piece of paper and lovingly tie it with a piece of straw. It was still warm from the oven. It didn't have a leather crust like La Brea. For me that is a good thing. It does have the earthy flavor of a good sourdough made from a variety of different flours. Very compelling and enjoyable. While I was there I HAD to try one of those pine nut studded cookies. It had a marzipan core and with the toasty taste of the pine nuts it was great. My dogs like their doggie cookies too. Bread is $3.00 and cookie is $1.00. Just remember, behind Van's at Washington and Redwood.
re: Bob S.
It is at the corner of Redwood and Washington Blvd. The address will only confuse you. It is about 5 blocks East of Lincoln. Look for the Van's tennis shoe store and turn there. It is behind Van's. This location is so bad that if their products were not stellar, they would already be out of business.
