“I assure you, we’re open!” We’ve been up for quite a few hours but by some magic trick we made it! Well, there’s no much trick, it’s just a lot of work/stress/nightmares but it all worked out in the end. We’re still behind construction wise but happy to see you again.

Bonjour from France where the family’s taking a well deserved break! Not quite a break from baking however as Le French Dad is learning how to make the regional specialty aka la pogne with a retired baker (well we don’t really retire). The beauty of passing on the know how and making people happy.

I’b case you’re wondering why our pain au chocolat has that distinctive, rich and smooth taste (ie doesn’t taste like ultra refined and sweet chocolate) it’s because we use 48% dark chocolate bâtons.

Better late than never as the saying goes! After four years (of blood sweat and tears but that’s not relevant here), we are finally getting some merch thanks to the tireless French Mom (and our beautiful model if you swipe right)! First up is this royalty worthy tote, perfect for hauling your treasured goods from the bakery to your home. We wanted something light and pun worthy hence the design (a great one we might add by ).
And because of the new plastic ban laws starting today, you will be receiving a 2% discount on any item if you bring your tote with you next time.

Ok folks near and far! As we have been actively recruiting for the past couple of months, we are finally able to extend our operating hours!
See, doing what we do takes time, patience and a lot of labor. Choosing the right people to not only bake but also prepare your food and greet you is not an easy endeavor. We need a day or two to recharge, be with our loved ones, run that laundry and take care of the house. We may not have the perks that bigger or prettier places do but we share a common goal, serving our community and making your day better.
Growing local talent, using locally sourced ingredients and produce, teaming up with local partners and organizations to collaborate and help in any way we can. That’s why we do what we do and we’re thankful to be able to do just that. And that’s thanks to you. Thank you for joining my TED speech, see you soon!

Hot cross buns are here! These Easter special rolls are quite popular all over the world really so we figured we’d swing some too! Think warm spice brioche bun studded with soaked raisins and candies fruits. We make our cross with a cinnamon glaze for that distinctive taste. Limited quantities available today and tomorrow so pop on over and have one or two or three or more!

Alright folks who would like to see us going back to NY and have friendly contest for the best baguette?!

Tarte fine aux pommes aka one of my favorite tarts (to eat). Flaky, buttery puff pastry dough base, vanilla crème pâtissière and Fuji apples slightly caramelized with brown sugar. Light yet rich, sweet but not overwhelming and so on. Great work from our BOH team.

Bonsoir Montclair and beyond, hope you’ve managed to stay somewhat dry today. We’re back at it tonight (the bakers at least) for some extra flaky layers of viennoiserie, naturally leavened breads as well as our dairy free challah. Preorder online and pick up tomorrow. Merci beaucoup see you then!

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 . Thank you for your support and kindness, as always.

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.

Come on down, we got you covered!
