We're sad to see the strawberries leave our menu, but luckily we have this incredible GREEN BEAN SALAD to fill the void! Green beans, shaved fresh fennel, thinly sliced jalepeΕ„os, herbs, and crispy chickpeas make this a filling and seasonal side for any of our sandwiches or a great standalone bite.

As we look forward to next year in our new, bigger space, we are also thinking about new menu items, new flavors, and more ways to feature the creativity of our team.

Our RHUBARB ORANGE PIE is just the right combination of tart, sweet, and refreshing to transition us from spring into summer. We pack our buttery pie crust with 2.5 lbs of fresh rhubarb, sugar, and orange zest - it's hard to beat. We're only going to have RHUBARB ORANGE PIE in the case until the end of May, so make sure to try it out while it's still here! You can place a preorder through our online store 48 hours in advance, or give us a call Monday-Friday to have us set one aside for you to pick up same-day. Also, this weekend ONLY, we have a few MINI S'MORES PIES in the case making a rare summer appearance! All that to say - it's a good weekend to eat pie. See you all soon!

We bake all of our bread fresh every day here at Dozen, but sometimes that means we run out of things before the end of the day! Luckily, we are not the only place that sells our bread in town. You can get FRENCH COUNTRY SOURDOUGH, BAGUETTES, HEARTH RYE, and limited seasonal loaves at Whole Foods downtown (after 9:30am DAILY) and Green Hills (after 10am DAILY). Smokin' Oaks on 8th ave also sells FRENCH COUNTRY and BAGUETTES, and they open a bit later than us so they often have bread later into the day. In addition, you can always give us or any of these wholesale partners a call to check bread stock before you head our way!​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Looking for a specific type of bread to pick up at Dozen? We can set aside bread for you Monday-Friday if you give the shop a call. Also, if you give us 48 hours notice, we're always happy to bake off some extra loaves just for you! All 48-hour preorders can now be placed through our online store.

It may be the most delicate shade of pink, but this soda packs a big punch of juicy strawberry flavor!​​​​​​​​​STRAWBERRY TYHME SODA - house made fresh strawberry thyme syrup with sparkling water and a twist of lemon.
Plus, the returning favorite:
STRAWBERRY THYME LATTE - same great syrup + espresso and steamed or cold milk.

Let's talk grains! 🌾 Amaranth is an ancient grain with an earthy flavor and packed with nutrients. Amaranth is a group of more than 60 different species of grains that have been cultivated for about 8,000 years. These grains were once considered a staple food in the Inca, Maya and Aztec civilizations. We love the way lightly-toasted amaranth tastes folded into our AMARANTH PEPITA SOURDOUGH - complex and nutty - and the slightly crispy-crunchy texture it adds to every loaf. AMARANTH PEPITA will be on the shelves through June, so you have plenty of time to give it a try. It's super versatile - it would be fabulous with jam and butter or with a hearty stew, but would also add fun complexity to a turkey sandwich. The possibilities are endless!

LAST CHANCE FOR FRESH STRAWBERRY PASTRIES​​​​​​​​​Now that fresh strawberries are waning, we're sadly going to have to say goodbye for now to our STRAWBERRIES + CREAM CROISSANTS and MINI STRAWBERRY PIES. They'll be around through this weekend, but will be gone as soon as we run out of the best berries, so RUN, DON'T WALK if you've yet to try either! πŸ“

It's a taste of spring in every bite. Here till the end of June!

UMAMI SOURDOUGH RETURNS​​​​​​​​​Everyone's favorite sourdough is back on the shelf! UMAMI SOURDOUGH - hydrated with house-made dashi broth and dashi butter, this bread is savory and complex with a soft, light crumb and flavorful crispy crust. It's amazing with soups, as the bread for grilled cheese, on charcuterie boards, and so much more. Ask a staff member their favorite way to use UMAMI SOURDOUGH at home! We're full of ideas. πŸ’‘β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹This month, UMAMI is also our donation loaf, so a portion of all proceeds from this loaf will be donated to St. Luke's Community House. For over 100 years St. Luke's has served children, families and seniors from diverse backgrounds and puts them on a path for a better future. They enrich our community through the following programs:
+ Hunger Alleviation (Food Bank and Mobile Meals)
+ Homelessness Prevention (Family Empowerment Program to disrupt cycles of poverty)
+ Child Development Center (prioritizing low-income families who cannot afford the rising costs of childcare, while providing literacy-rich education to 120+ students daily)
+ Seasonal community programming (free tax preparation and holiday support)
You can also donate directly through our links.

UMAMI SOURDOUGH will be here through May...and it might disappear for awhile after, so be sure to stock up! Give us a call on weekdays to reserve a loaf, or email us 48 hours in advance for a weekend preorder pickup!
