Our Menu

We offer a variety of bread, pan dulce, pastry and cookie options every Wednesday through Sunday. Some baked goods are a little more popular than others and might sell out before we close.

On weekends, you’ll also find some specials (some regular, others more seasonal or holiday-based) that you don’t want to miss! Always come early for best selection!

Our hot drinks + aguas frescas are all made in house from scratch with whole ingredients and are all naturally vegan unless otherwise noted. Drink specials pop up from time to time also, but are less common than our baked goods specials.

We also carry a selection of canned drinks for other artisanal makers (Yesfolk Kombucha, Lovely Bunch apple juice, Halmi, etc)

Our shelves are stocked with specialty foods we love (chocolate, beans, seafood, spices, etc) and handmade home goods (clay mugs, incense, cards, etc).

While you’re at the bakery, don’t forget to check out the fridge. In it you’ll find many other favorites: house-made cake, butter, jam, salsa, cheese plates, and more refreshments.

Below you'll find a list and descriptions of our regular items.

As a rule of thumb, the later you arrive the less selection there will be!! Our baked goods are made FRESH which means they are meant to be sold, so if you arrive close to our closing hour, chances are there will be much fewer things remaining.
We recommend planning ahead (come early!) or be ready to enjoy whatever the display case has to offer you!

Gusto Bread

* Items marked with an asterisk are wild fermented!

These items are made with masa madre AKA naturally leavened AKA fermented with sourdough!

Think of sourdough/masa madre as a method of cultivating wild yeasts for baking rather than just bread with a tangy/sour flavor. 

We strive to make balanced-tasting breads and pastries because we believe in the wisdom and ancient tradition of baking with natural leaven and it provides a chance to taste the nuances of the beautiful grains and ingredients we’ve selected.
