seeking loaf of brioche?

A friend is treating me to Little Pearl caviar this weekend (I'm so excited), and I'm looking to get a good loaf of brioche. Somerville is preferred, but I can drive around.

I've checked the new Soleil cafe and south end's flour, both of which have brioche-with-pastry-goodness added, but that won't do for the salty eggy fishy.

(sadly, I do not yet love blini, and I am too darn picky (even at my own attempts) regarding swedish pancakes.)

    1. Iggy's has fabulous brioche rolls, they may well have loaves, give them a call.

        Iggy's does do brioche loaves some times.

        Yi Soon also does a lighter (not so eggy) brioche like bread for very reasonable $.

      2. I like the brioche from Russo's in Watertown. It's tasty.

        1. On Saturdays at the Union Square farmer's market B&R sells a pretty good brioche loaf. So buttery that it makes paper bags translucent. in other words...quality!

          1. Sel De La Terre does a good one. But B & R would be incredible. Clear Flour has them on weekends. (they are listed under Pastry on their site.)
