It all started when...

Pleasant House Bread is a bakery that celebrates real bread by using local, organic grains that we mill ourselves onsite with every batch. Our breads are naturally leavened and baked in our wood-fired oven, yielding lovely, complex flavor and texture. We also make rich croissants and other viennoiserie as well as delicious, naturally leavened doughnuts.
