Where to find thin sliced bread for tea sandwiches?

Not trusting myself to slice bread well for a large number of tea sandwiches, I'd like to buy the bread. Looking primarily for white bread. I've tried Europane, Village Bakery, Le Pain Quotidien, Panera, Gelson's, Bristol Farms and Little Flower Candy Company.

Please help!

  1. pepperidge farm. their bread seemingly lasted for weeks back when i was in college.

    any place that sells their goldfish crackers would IMO be more likely to carry their bread also.

    Call la Maison du Pain (Pico near Hauser) see if they have pain de mie. if they do, they have a slicer and can slice it to any thickness

  3. Bea's Bakery, at 18450 Clark St. in Tarzana (near the intersection of Ventura Blvd. and Reseda Blvd.) has slicers it titles "regular" and "thin." eaurae, I don't know how thin you need your bread sliced but Bea's thin slicing machine gets it pretty dang thin. They also have several varieties of white bread, and you might want to think about putting some of your sandwiches on egg bread.

  4. Pepperidge farm remembers.


    Any bread slicer can be set to cut thin slices. So choose the bread you prefer....and have it sliced thing I recommend seeded whole grain bread for tea sandwiches...more European!


    I don't know any stores in LA that carry Pepperidge Farm, except Ralph's in the Culver Center, near the corner of Overland and Venice (maybe all Ralph's stores.). They carry two types of wheat bread and now and a potato bread and a sourdough. They are not sliced as thin as PF thin sliced white bread but after removing the crusts, they might work, especially the potato bread.

    Some help here? There is a Japanese owned bakery in a large outdoor shopping center in Irvine. I don 't remember the name but they have square, thin sliced white bread. Maybe someone knows the place.


    All the proper ladies that I knew in the midwest (and east) used Pepperidge Farm white sandwich bread, the square slices that are also quite thin. Perfect for afternoon tea sandwiches with the crusts cut off : )

    Perhaps Gelsons carries it?
