Rye Bread in the San Gabriel Valley?

Besides Amy's Pastry in Montebello, where else can I find some good rye bread in the San Gabriel Valley? Thanks!

  1. Believe it or not, one of the best ryes I've found around here is at none other than HOWS market. They have a standard seeded corn rye as well as a marble rye. Europane might also do a rye, but don't quote me on that.

    1. I don't have a good answer - though i wonder if Schreiners deli in Montrose might have a good selection or at least a step up from the grocery brand of rye. I am wondering if anyone sells Weidemeyer was a grocery brand but i grew up on it so i still love it.

        Schreiner's doesn't sell much bread. Go next door to Berolina Bakery -- they have great rye bread. Not in the SGV though, but not so terribly far from it, and rarely any traffic.

      2. The best Rye bread in So. Cal is at Diamond Bakery on Fairfax. I know it's not SGV, but when I come in from Vegas, I get 10 loaves, thin sliced and freeze them. Once you have theirs, none else will do!

        1. The comment below re: Diamond Bakery (which is not responsive to your request) reminds me that, in fact, the bread man at the Saturday Pasadena farmers' market sells Diamond's corn rye, among other delectable delights.

          1. Try Wild Flour in Monrovia.
