This lil bakery is my fav in the burg. EVERYTHING is always fresh, never a day old and the best around. There is nothing in the burg that can compare to Lorraine breads.

In the Community Market this is the place I like to go for breakfast or brunch. Their mini-quiches are yummy and their pastries [according to my husband] are fabulous.

First of all they have got to keep the flies out of the glass case where the pastries are sitting uncovered, ugh. Some of the items are really, really good. Others are average and can even be dry and lacking in flavor at times. The staff is always friendly but some of them are not knowledgeable of the selection being... More

I love to stop by the Bakery at the Community Market. the breads are fresh, the pastries are light and always tasty. But, my favorite is the chocolate croissant.....it is heavenly! The mini quiche's and other breakfast pastries are worth the trip on Saturday mornings! Get there early - the line is sometimes out the door! :)

Every time we go to the market we stop to get a nice loaf of bread (and sometimes something sweet!) and we are never disappointed, we've tried many different varieties and they are all delicious.

Everything is baked fresh each day. Rustic breads and typical European style bread and pastries. Crepes are made to order. It's a family owed and run business, the only bakery of it's type in the area.
