The Scali loaves are some of the best bread loaves I've ever had in my life. We buy them 2 or 3 at a time and freeze them, then make our own home made garlic bread. Great desserts to choose from too! You will not be disappointed :)

Good thing I live in California and not near this place. Pastries were just as good (maybe better) as ones in Europe. We bought 4 ham/cheese croissants, chocolate mini croissant, gruyere croissant and money bread. Took them to go and my daughter-in-law warmed them in the oven and best breakfast ever!

This is a nice, little bakeshop on Willy street. There are a few tables outside and indoor seating at a counter along the window. In addition to bread and pastries, they also have coffee/tea (I think apple cider was on the menu too). The place itself isn't fancy, but the baked goods on display make up for it. I stopped...

This is a loved spot whenever we are in the area and we love the chocolate croissants. But I tried to find something with normal amount of sugar but failed. Everything is really really sweet to the point where our kids eventually rejected the goods.

Great choice of baked goods. Excellent staff. Clean & pleasant environment. Almost every item is available in individual-sized portions. The finest "snacks" available in a very large geographical area..the USA?

I have to stay away because I'd never stop eating their baguettes and pastry. It's a great stop in a neighborhood with lots of great stops. Haven't had a thing there that wasn't wonderful~

Great bread, great croissants, great sweets, pies, etc.. The worst part of the experience is having to choose what to have..

Is a double edged sword. I want to eat a blueberry lemon baby every day of my life, but don't want to get diabetes. They also do these cake plug things, which are layered chocolate cake and fluffy moussey goodness. They're not there all the time, but if you see them you better snag one or you'll be sorry.

Everything we had was absolutely scrumptious. The bread was crispy yet soft on the inside. The pain au chocolate/ fromage was amazing. And the scones are one of the best I've ever had, maybe even better than the ones at the McFarland House Cafe.it may be a bit expensive, but definitely worth it.

Batch Bakehouse is a small bakery that specializes in Croissants and classic French Baguette. We bake fresh from scratch every day. Offering a variety of artisanal loaf breads and a wide selection of pastry. Our chefs seem to put something new in the case every day, stop in to see what we've baked today. Our croissant items tend to sell out early, so come early and often to get the best selection; or simply call ahead and we'll hide your order behind the counter.
