Mamadou's bread is fantastic and a must for any dinner party. The cranberry pecan loaf is my favorite. Definitely get there early for the best selection or place an order in advance. They are at many local Farmers' Markets if you can't make it to their store in Winchester.

Hand's down the best in the area. No "knead" to look elsewhere. The store may be difficult to locate, but after your first purchase, you'll always find your way back.

Best bread in Boston. French bread. Wonderful service. Get there early if you want baguettes. But they have lots of variety.

Mamadou is my favorite local bakery. All of the bread I have tried has been great: multigrain, sourdough, baguette, cranberry pecan, raisin, cheese.

Mamadou is a genius of bread-making, and he and his family run an extraordinary operation, dedicated to the best ingredients and always the highest standards. I have given the bread to friends for different occasions, and they always rave about it. Our favorites are the very nutritious, dense whole wheat, the cranberry pecan (my friend's son called 'treasure bread.'), and... More

Pricey, but hey its Winchester, and its worth it. This bresd is Amazing! Also mamadou is a really warm and friendly person. You'll fall in the love with the place once you meet him and see the heart and soul he puts into his bread and his work. Great neighborhood bakery. Stop in today. You won't be disappointed.

This is just a bakery not a restaurant to get a sit down meal, but the breads are the best I've ever had.

Mamadou's sells at their baking location and at the local Farmers' Market. They sell a wide variety of artisanal breads. My favorites are the ones with pecans and raisins/cranberries. A bit pricey but lower than others I've seen at other farmers' markets. Highly recommended.

It's unusual to find an artisan bakery in a small town like Winchester, but here it is! The special breads and croissants are outstanding, but my favorite is the baguettes, which cannot be beat. The family who own and operate the bakery are delightful as well.

Our community feels incredibly fortunate that Mamodou and his family settled here in Winchester, bringing their delicious bread business to our community. Lines form first thing on weekends - so get there early for the best selection. Can't go wrong with the classic baguette. Try the amazing croissants for a delicious treat. My staple is the cranberry-walnut boule. Tip: Summer... More
