Lodge Bread Co
The three young chefs behind this small storefront on a quiet stretch of Washington Blvd are baking heavenly loaves of whole grain, long-fermented sourdough bread. You can grab a hearty loaf of country, whole wheat, ancient grain, or seasonal specialty to take home, or settle in for thick slices of toast with spreads like avocado, jam, and nut butters. They also offer other baked treats like their luscious cinnamon rolls. Be sure to check out pizza night, starting at 5pm on Sundays, where you’ll find an exceptional pie that rotates weekly and is topped with farm-fresh ingredients.
Out-of-this-world bread is the name of the game here, but Lodge also excels at all things dough, from fluffy Middle Eastern pitas to flaky croissants and decadent cinnamon rolls. The menu is stacked with carby, crave-worthy eats: hefty sammies, takeaway loaves, and even a toast bar with toppings like ricotta, cultured butter, and seasonal jams. Years ago, chefs Alex Phaneuf and Or Amsalam also started hosting pizza nights, which—during the pandemic—evolved into a pop-up concept operating out of Lodge Bread. Now their passion project has turned into a full-fledged enterprise called Full Proof Pizza, where they’re slinging New York-style, whole-grain-focused pies made with a natural sourdough starter (rather than yeast) and emphasizing seasonal ingredients and unexpected combos, such as potato and leek, burrata and zucchini, and BBQ chicken.
