Clear Flour Bakery

I went to Clear Flour Bakery yesterday for the first time on the recommendations of a co-worker, and I have to say their bread was VERY good. The Baguette was one of the best I have ever had, and the sourdough had a great texture even if it was a little bit weak on the sourness.

Anyone else frequent this establishment?

  1. Darn near daily, especially now that the kid is home from college for the summer so our bread consumption just tripled ;-)

    It's a board favorite, do a search.

    1. Everyone who lives anywhere near the place goes there.

      Try the German rye, the ancienne baguette and the pain de mie.

        And even people who don't live close. I love their bread.

      2. Love their ancienne baguette and their paris night rolls (raisin rolls).

          morning buns with walnuts, fougasse with gorgonzola and walnuts on saturday, black sesame garlic sticks on thursday. and that's in addition to the best baguettes outside of paris.

        2. really love the rustic italian, and it comes in three sizes so you can choose how much bread you will be eating. And on Sunday, there is nothing like their guyere croissant. I get this treat once a month.

          1. Before it closed, I thought the baguette at Bread & Butter in JP had edged out Clearflour by a smidge. Clearflour is back to being the top dog again, in my opinion. Also a big fan of their rosemary foccaccia - makes great sandwiches.
