I bought some baguettes here for a party we were having. They were just great, crusty on the outside and firm on the inside. I also bought a few bagels for breakfast the next day

The pain au levain and the raisin pecan are our particular favorites. Buy it sliced, get some mascarpone from Downtown Cheese and enjoy!
