The Best Whole Wheat Bread in LA
I love soft, chewy, dense bread, and I don't really like crunchy, crusty bread. The three kinds of whole wheat bread from The Bagel Factory on Cadillac & Robertson are the best breads I've EVER had - whole wheat or not.
They make whole wheat challah and two kinds of whole wheat sandwich bread. The breads are all sweet, flavorful, dense, chewy, yeasty, and delicious. They have ingredients like oat flour, eggs, molasses, malt, and raisin juice.
When I was little, my mom had a business making homemade whole wheat bread in her kitchen and delivering it around our little town. Her bread was great. This is better. (Is it wrong to say that?)
The "High fiber sandwich bread" is the lighter of the two sandwich breads, with several flours (oat, rye, corn, more) and barley flakes on top. The other whole wheat sandwich bread is darker and more intensely yeasty, and has little nutty whole grains in the mix.
I don't have a favorite. All three are stellar.
I just eat it straight. No butter, no sandwich fillings, just bread. Maybe a little salt once in a while. And a glass of milk.

Our favorite is Homeboy's Sandwich loaves, either the Multigrain (GREAT Rye taste!) or Whole Grain (with oats on top). We pick them up at the Mar Vista Farmers Market and at first, we were afraid they'd be too soft (They come fresh baked from the morning), but they actually hold their shape wonderfully and make the BEST toast... Amazing flavor too... not too tangy but wheaten...

I really like the whole wheat bread I've had from The Great Harvest Bread Company. Closest bakery location to LA is in Pasadena http://www.greatharvestsouthpasadena.... but we've had sandwiches made from it at Literati 2 on Wilshire Blvd. in WLA in the past.
