Kudos to TravelinJack for even spotting this place
i forgot to note the address and drove by it twice. it's a few doors down from Chocoletier Blue.
Currently the only things they have in the store that are not sold at the farmers markets are about a half dozen gluten-free breads ... baguettes, pain de mie, sourdough and a few others.
The women in the door in a German frauline costume said that they will be also carrying German cakes in the future.
Despite the uniform, it is a very modern looking store, the dark wood shelves holding loaves of bread and baskets of their pretzels and pretzel croissants near the register.
The still have stolen and Christmas bread, so I bought a Christmas bread which is a dark, not sweet bread, loaded with dried figs and nuts.
