  1. don't know about northern westchester, but kneaded bread in pt. chesteris very goodfor breads, also good pastries (filled donuts), otherwise your best bet is probably farmers markets

      Are you specifically looking for French bread? A good baguette is very hard to find. But if you hit a farmer's mkt, check out the one from Bread Alone--their other breads are better, but their baguette is better than Merediths.

    2. Other chowhounds correct me if I am wrong-- but I think La Tulipe in Mt. Kisco has bread in addition to their amazing macarons and breakfast pastries (brioches, croissants, muffins, etc.).

      And Rich51's suggestion of farmers' markets is a good one-- P'ville, Ossining both have various bread vendors.

        i also like la tulipe, but i have never had bread from there and wasn't sure if they have any

      2. I agree w. I eat a lot of ice cream with La TUlips. You can also try L'Anjou Patisserie Francaise, Mt Kisco, NY (rght behind Boston Market)

        1. Jennifer's in Mt Kisco is very good. Its on Lexington, by Thai Angels.

            I dont think they have bread either. L'Anjou and La Tulipe definitely have brioche, but I don't know about bread.

          2. Has anyone been to Connie's, speaking of Mt. Kisco and not necessarily bread-related? I stopped in the other day and I was really not impressed by how the stuff behind the counter looked so I didn't get anything. Worth it, yay or nay?

              I find Connie's to be a bit wierd, but what I've had has been good. Whatis on display in the counters is not for sale, so if you see something there you want, they don't necessarily have it. A bit bizarre. I was there and asked for the very good looking cinnamon bun that was in the counter and the person behind the counter told me he'd see if he had one. It was right there,but just for display.
