10 Best Bakeries in America

In January Andrew Knowlton did a piece in Bon Appetit on the 10 best bakeries in America and a bakery in Seattle is listed!

Especially worth your dough here are the Macrina Casera ("of this house" bread made with a natural wild starter created from organic grapes) and the oatmeal buttermilk bread (ideal for sandwich making). 1943 First Avenue South; 206-623-0919;

He has obviously not been to Holly B's Bakery on Lopez Island in the beautiful San Juan Islands!
She has wonderful pastries and her own cookbook With Love and Butter which I had to purchase!

See if a Bakery in your area made the top ten list!

  1. I love this...knowing where the best bakeries are if you are visiting in one of these places. San Francisco or Seattle for example. We didn't have one listed for AZ...Oh well :-) Guess you had to be at the right place at the right time to get listed :-) We have a couple of long time bakeries here as well. I just love the smell, taste, texture of fresh baked breads...I have a wonderful loaf sitting on the counter right now, made by a local bakery...:-) ~Blessings, Janet
