While we are a continent and a half away, we are deeply concerned about what’s happening in Ukraine. As a kid from Sarajevo, I’ve seen the same type of madness happen some 30 years ago.
So we decided to help in our own way by doing what we do best. Starting tomorrow and until stock lasts, you will be able to pick up a pair of macarons for $10. All of the proceeds will go to World Central Kitchen @wckitchen . Thank you for your support and kindness, as always.

🚨 Wednesday March 30 Bloomfield Avenue will be closed between North/South Willow to North/South Fullerton from 10am to 2pm 🚨
Don’t let this stop you from stocking up on breads and pastries. Fight the cold weather away with a hearty loaf, flaky croissant or hot coffee from @paperplanecoffeeco
Merci, à demain!

Hi everyone near and far! Some four years ago, I took over a spot on Church street (and a huge leap of faith) and been at it ever since. Although we’ve seen some changes, the vision is and will always be the same, be that community boulangerie. I take extreme pride in what I do and will continue to do so. Sure, we might not have the fanciest place on earth but what matters to me, to us, is you. The everyday celebrity whose day we make a little better. The out of towner who drives two hours to load up on bread and viennoiserie for a week. The spontaneous salesperson who can’t stop raving about our stuff to their family or colleagues. The partners who get our baked goods and complement with their respective craft. Our team makes it happen, no matter what. You get it. You get why and what we do. And for that and that alone, it’s worth putting in the work.

To celebrate this anniversary, we're offering ONE (1) FREE macaron with each IN-STORE purchase.
Offer valid through March 31st, 2022. Not applicable for online orders.

If you’ve never been to their store, please pay Carl and his team a visit they’ve got a ton (literally) of cheese in their store. #cheese #bread #needwinenow

What makes bread good bread? Is it flour? Is it the way it is leavened? Is it time? Is it all of it above? I like to think so.
First off, the choice of Jersey grown, stone milled whole grain flour is very important to us. The kind folks at RVCG supply us with a variety of wheat, rye, spelt, buckwheat, oats needed for our daily production for over three years now. The fact that I'm able to get grain within our beautiful Garden State is quite extraordinary. We are a handful of bakeries in Jersey using locally grown grains.
Second off is the leavening method. We pride ourselves in allowing a slow, naturally leavened fermentation using our sourdough starter (aka levain). By doing so, we considerably reduce the amount of gluten proteins present in the grain. The sourdough culture (the lactic acid bacteria in particular) neutralizes the effects of phytic acid and allows people with IBS or gluten sensitivity to enjoy a loaf of bread.
And lastly, time. We let our bread ferment for 24 to 48 hours. I am not looking for that perfect instagram worthy crumb shot because I'm not using high protein flours. What I'm after is very simple: a nutritious, delicious and locally produced loaf of bread. Some days it's a bit more challenging than others (weather, sourdough culture, baker etc) but day in and day out, we try to make the best bread we can.

Long story short: we are fully caffeinated by @paperplanecoffeeco now! For those who don’t know about Jon and his awesome team, they are a one of a kind shop where they roast, blend, mix, experiment on all things coffee and then some. Long story short (part deux), we won’t do any fancy coffee science stuff nor vanilla/cinnamon/pumpkin/whatever-big-chain-coffee-shops-do lattes, but if you ask (nicely) we’ll get you the best coffee there is. #coffee #bakerywithacoffeeaddiction #localbusiness #smallbusiness

We heard it’s #nationalcroissantday today! The iconic viennoiserie, invented by Austrian bakers and perfected by the French is recognizable throughout the planet.
But what makes a good croissant you may ask? Is it the high fat butter, the three day process allowing the dough to develop flavor, strength? Is it the lack of additives and conditioners that makes it reveal its true taste through fermentation? Is it the countless hours of testing and perfecting a recipe to find the right balance between all the ingredients? Is it using fresh farm eggs and sourdough culture? Is it using unbleached and unbromated flour? Is it the trained hands of bakers who mix, shape and bake day in and day out?
Or is it you, whoever you are crossing that door, losing yourself in the smell of flaky goodness and telling us that indeed, it’s all of these things combine that makes it truly worthwhile? #croissant #boulanger
