Fresh baked bread

Looking for a loaf of fresh baked bread, NOT french or filled with anything such as blue cheese, etc. All the bakeries I have looked up appear to specialize in King Cakes and pastries...does anyone specialize in breads?

  1. La Boulangerie on Magazine has several varities of plain breads that aren't baguette, if that's what you mean by French. White and wheat sandwich bread, ciabatta, foccacia, etc.

      Maple St Patisserie definitely has bread in addition to pastry. Also try the Tuesday farmer's market at Uptown Square (Broadway & River Road)...several bakeries offer bread at the market. I especially like Forte Grove's breads....FG is at the market on alternative Tuesdays.

        I'd pay special attetion to HC's recommendations, as there're v.few more serious students of bread. 'Nuff said.

    2. Pardon my "French": specifically I am looking for Pan De Criollo, after returning from six months in the Caribbean, I fell in love with the Latin bread s there and would like to find some.

        Sorry I can't point you to any Puerto Rican bakeries in SE LA, but you might try the offerings at Norma's in Kenner, 3221 Georgia Ave. It's a Cuban bakery, but the folks are friendly and might have some suggestions for you within Kenner's extensive Hispanic community. Also try Union Supermarket in Kenner, 2105 West Esplanade-- http://www.unionsupermarket.com/
