Bought loaves of bread. Not impressed but found the building impressive. Funky hippie vibe. No one was in sight when we entered and then a gentleman appeared at counter. Hard to decipher what he was saying and it was an awkward experience. I was happy to leave and probably won't be back. I really wanted to experience the good that... More

The cinnamon bread we bought was one of the tastiest foods I've ever eaten.Yum! Toasted with butter was no comparison to the grocery store bread I was used to. Next time I'm in the area I'll be sure to buy more to bring home.

This time we got some wonderful cinnamon bread that was perfect for French Toast the next morning. All the bakery items are so tempting, you can't go wrong. Plenty of free parking on the side.

I rarely stop at Baba A Louis to eat in, but I regularly visit their bakery counter. Their granola is as good as I can do from scratch, and buying the quantity I need is so much easier and quite likely more economical. It is a breakfast staple for me. For a treat I go for an almond croissant, which... More

Walking in you are greeted with the warm and wonderful smell of fresh baked goods; you are immediately surrounded by racks fresh baked bread and cases of beautiful dessert items. A limited menu (chalk board) of sandwiches and perhaps a quiche along with a couple of pots of soup are your lunch choices. The soups are self service while the... More

To enter this bakery is to enter a sacred place! The building itself is truly amazing and one could immediately tell the heart put into it. All of the baked items are amazing as well. They use organic ingredients and it's all handmade and deliciously decadent. I have had the best omelet in my life there and their pizzas (on... More
