Amazing Bread & Much More in East Aurora

There are lot of great local restaurants in the Southtowns.  We live very close to East Aurora and we frequent the town for all different types of places to eat.  Once place we stop at several times a month is the Elm Street Bakery:


Most frequently, we stop at Elm Street Bakery for breakfast.  The kids love it!  The bakery bills itself as a "family-owned, local bakery, cafe and market offering whole, seasonal & fresh food in a warm & welcoming environment."  The bakery offers artisanal breads, pastries and freshly roasted coffee.  The cafe offers soup, sandwiches, salads and wood-fired pizzas.

We stopped by on a recent Saturday morning.  We were greeted by these delicious sights:




As usual, we all loved our breakfast.  We also bought this beauty to take home:


Three Seed Sourdough.

We brought this home to have with dinner that night.  Here's the bread while my wife sliced through it:


The bread had a wonderfully crunchy crust.  The inside was soft, and chewy.  The sourdough was delightfully sour and balanced well by the sunflower, sesame, and flax seeds.  Wonderful taste, chew and texture.

A friend of mine makes the trip from the Northtowns to Elm Street for the pizza and to bring bread back home.  Not a bad idea at all.

    1. The food is phenomenal, Joanne! It is a little more expensive than its competitors like Tim Horton's and other fast food chains, but the product is vastly superior. The baked goods and pastries are all very reasonable given the high quality.
