August Menu

07/30/2023

Ever since my initial introductory post, there has been an influx of new and returning long-time customers. As a result, this week saw higher volumes than anything this summer. I apologize for selling out of many items (especially bread) today, something I consider to be unacceptable. While it's a mixed blessing, I know there were people coming here for the first time in a long time, hoping to buy bread again.

We will significantly increase production for next weekend to ensure we have stock through the end of the day. Additionally, as both an apology and as a token of our appreciation to all the returning customers, anyone who references this post or who came today and found bread sold out will receive a 20% discount on bread next Saturday and Sunday.

I'm also aware that the last three days have had slower service than usual. We've had one manager, two retail employees, and one backup employee all sick or away on vacation, so we were both short-staffed and lacking some of the more specialized roles.

There's a larger ice machine, a bread slicer, and a better sandwich prep station all on the way. There are still a lot of changes I'd like to make to the business, and I'm factoring employee and customer feedback into all my decisions so it may take longer than everyone would like to fix certain things. Our main focus right now is training employees better on order flow management to reduce the turnaround time on small, fast orders such as coffee+doughnut and to have partial order fulfillment so that people can eat their doughnuts while they wait for slower items such as breakfast sandwiches.

Again, I thank all our customers for your patience and for your willingness to give Montclair Bread Company a second (or third/fourth/fifth) try. And please, for anyone who has had the revamped chicken salad and vegan veggie sandwiches, let us know what you like/dislike about it.

I didn't notice this didn't get pushed from IG to FB, so here it is:

Some of you have seen me around, spoken to me, or read various articles about the change in ownership, but I felt it was time to formally introduce myself. My name is Wes, and I'm the new owner of Rabble Rise as of June 1st. I'm bringing a Supply Chain Management and Food Service background to the business, which will be reflected through improvements in both the operations of the business and the customer experience. I've made (and am planning) a series of changes, outlined below:

First, in June, I increased production by 40% to eliminate sellouts of doughnuts (a major complaint of customers over the last six months. I also modified our process of preparing breakfast sandwiches to reduce the prep time.

Then, after speaking to many members of the community, I decided to change the name back to Montclair Bread Company. A name change is always a complicated, lengthy process and carries a lot of weight. However, I feel that, because Montclair is the community that helped grow the business, it deserves to be on the building once again.

Additionally, I've brought back bread as an everyday item and will continue to expand the types of bread offered based on customer feedback.

Next, I'm revamping our menu, specifically the lunch sandwiches, which, outside the "Pear, Brie, and Arugula", I feel are in need of improvement.

And finally, I'm working with a friend from Detroit to bring a certain savory, rectangular menu item to the business in the evenings, so pay attention to social media for updates.

I appreciate everyones' patience during this transition, and please know that my staff are equally dedicated to the continuous improvement of the business while working hard to make our customers happy. Our committment to quality remains the same, and all the delicious flavors you know and love are here, ready to be eaten.

I look forward to collaborating more with local businesses and the Montclair community. I'm thrilled to join Montclair as the new proprietor of The Montclair Bread Company (formerly and unformerly Rabble Rise Doughnuts) And why did I want to be the owner of The Montclair Bread Company? Well, who wouldn't? It's an institution. 🥯🥖🥐

***Inflation Special***
$1 for 1 glazed doughnut
$1 for 1 small hot coffee

Weekdays Only- while supplies last (no substitutions)

One per customer per day.

Cash Only

Some updates since we started offering this treat….
The offer is only valid on weekdays because our bakeries are not as busy, our staff can handle an increase in production & customers, and we would love to see more friendly faces during the week.

It’s cash only because it would cost us $0.40 to charge $1 on a credit card and we are already offering these treats below what it costs us to produce them because we want to do something nice for our community.

It’s one per person per day because it’s meant to be an uplifting treat to get you through your day and we want our doughnuts to get to as many people as possible.

Once again, we are offering this special for less than it costs to make. That big corporate shop that spells doughnut wrong and rhymes with Gunkin’ charges $1.89 for a ‘donut’ and $2.35 for a small coffee (based on our location as this could vary)

PLEASE STOP YELLING AT OUR STAFF!!!! If we continue to have rude outbursts because the rules are difficult to follow, we will no longer be able to offer this special. Preserving the mental health of our team is important to us.

Thank you!!! Enjoy ❤️☺️🍩

Our Montclair shop is closed until Saturday at 7am so we can host our 11th annual Summer Baking Camp for kids it’s going soooo well that we added another session at the end of the month- one last hurrah before back to school time. AND there’s a session in New Paltz too. Don’t worry- we worked it out so we won’t close again this year.

The bakery was founded in 2012 by Rachel Wyman, an award-winning career baker who was featured in the Sunday New York Times in 2016. Though the bakery has grown beyond its original 600 square feet space on Walnut Street, Rachel continues to oversee operations. Our mission is to nourish our community...

Our family is growing! We’ve adopted a new dad, a French one to be exact!

Operating a small business is really hard and it can be very lonely. Arben from Le French Dad has been a good friend and ally since he baked his first baguette in Montclair.

When we found out he was out of space to make enough croissants & breads to fill his orders, we invited him to move in and share with us!!! Didn’t the just write a piece about how roommates are the newest trend in this economy? I guess we’re right on point.

will continue to operate their retail store on Church Street & our store front will continue to be filled with our Rabble but you can peek in the window and wave to our new roomies who will be baking side by side with our team and even teaching ‘s kiddos some new skills.

Flour prices have increased over 45% in the last year. Butter has doubled. It costs nearly $400 to fill our fryer and we have to fill it 3 times a week to keep your doughnuts fresh & tasty. It is completely insane but we are committed to keeping our quality standards and supporting local vendors rather than diluting the integrity of our brand with less costly ingredients. Needless to say, we’ve been forced to raise our prices bit by bit as we can no longer afford to keep them steady.


But this is NOT a notice of a price increase. In fact, it’s a notice of a price reduction. Crazy, right? It’s costing us more than ever to be in business right now but we want to ease YOUR burden, just a little, and make sure you can afford to treat yourself to a coffee & a doughnut when you need some Rabble Rise comfort in your life.


Starting this week (with no end in sight), we will offer a Recession Special at both of our locations. You can grab one of our handmade glazed brioche doughnuts for $1. To make this deal even sweeter, you can pair it with a small cup of hot coffee for an additional $1. That’s just $2 for the best doughnut & coffee combo ever.


Rules do apply. This deal is cash only and it will only be available for walk up/in customers on weekdays (not on Saturday or Sunday). You can not order ahead or have our team hold doughnuts for you. Only one per customer per day, while they last.

Thank you for respecting the rules. In order to offer this super sweet special - we have to make it as easy as possible for our team. We are selling them to you for less than it costs us to make them because you deserve a doughnut!!!

Our Story

Career baker Rachel Wyman wanted to bring her passion for the wonders of yeast, flour, eggs, and sugar to her new hometown in Montclair, NJ, and Montclair Bread Company opened in a tiny storefront near the Walnut Street train station in May 2012.

Montclair Bread Co specializes in artisan bread, classic pastries, and speciality doughnuts. Breakfast and lunch sandwiches are made to order. The menu is based on local and seasonal fare, and the bakery proudly serves Stumptown Coffee and Chamellia Teas.

In November of 2015, the bakery’s production was moved one block away, into a much larger space - the converted Motor Vehicle Inspection Station on Label Street, originally opened in the 1930s. Two years later, our team was reunited when the retail bakery moved from Walnut Street to Label Street as well.

Today, Montclair Bread Co has a team of over thirty retail and production employees, who work around the clock to nourish our community with innovative food and experiences.
