Call in here to get a unique taste of a range of breads. The loaves are all hand made and your choice may not always be available. There is also great coffee and a range of pastries and sandwiches.

The only reason I don't give 5 stars is I walked in to see these huge cinnamon rolls, ordered one and opened the sack and this roll was so small it could have been a child's portion. Disappointing, but it was delicious. Seating is limited and parking even more so, plan accordingly.

Ken Forkish changed my way of baking bread and I haven't looked back since. I couldn't wait to go to his bakery and try his baking. We had a quiche which was delicious. A croissant that was flakey and buttery and melted in my mouth. Then we had the bread pudding that was loaded with big blueberries and apples and... More

I'm lucky enough to live around the corner, so you can find me here frequently in the morning to sip a coffee and have breakfast. A place where probably mostly locals hang out, a relaxed atmosphere with individual as well as communal tables. Order your food and drink, sit down and chat with locals or just read a newspaper.

This is one of the better bakeries in Port Land. Everything I've had has been well made and quite delicious.

We just stumbled on this bakery on our way to a movie down the street, but we were so happy to have found it. The pastries were amazing. We did not try any food, but were sort of in heaven eating the croissants and baguettes. Wish we would have found it sooner in our trip!

Love this place, but it is so popular you always have to wait. but the wait is worth it. Love their breads. they make a great quiche. The chocolate croissant is a little expensive but it is very well made. Good coffee also.

We were fortunate enough to stay walking distance from Ken's Artisan Bakery. Every morning we got our freshly baked baguette and pastries from Ken's Bakery and it was such a delight! The baguettes were top notch! My friend kept asking "why can't we find baguette like this in LA?" The croissants were fabulous too! Everything from Ken's Bakery was delicious!... More
