Experience the difference of true craftsmanship

Our Story

Our Story

Before the low-GI, carb-clever, banting-friendly, wheat-free, gluten-free, and essentially joy-free varieties of bread began to populate our supermarket shelves, bread was a staple food. It had been one since the Stone Age. A few artisans still believe that by returning to the old ways, we can rekindle the old flame… Among those few Artisans is a bakery that holds the secret to creating the most delectable sourdough bread and pastries.
This bakery, known as The Bread Gypsy, is more than just a supply of baked goods; it is a gateway to a world of knowledge and culinary delight.

Where Tradition Meets The Modern Lifestyle

At the Bread Gypsy, we believe in the power of tradition, simplicity, community, and generosity. These values form the foundation of our business.
Each of our Artisan breads are crafted with care and expertise. We start with stone-ground flour, carefully selected for its quality and nutritional value. Each loaf is meticulously shaped by hand and baked in a wood-fired oven, infusing it with a unique flavor and texture that could never be replicated.

Our commitment to preserving tradition while embracing the modern lifestyle sets us apart from other bakeries.
We understand that in today’s fast-paced world, convenience is key. That’s why we made it our mission to provide you with the traditional experience of freshly baked bread and pastries right at your fingertips.

The Power of Breaking Bread Together

When you walk into The Bread Gypsy, you will be greeted by the warm aroma of freshly baked goods. 

Our knowledgeable staff will guide you through our wide selection of freshly baked products, sharing their expertise and passion for the craft.  They will help you choose the perfect loaf or pastry that suits your taste buds and dietary preferences. But it’s not just about the products; it’s about the experience. The Bread Gypsy became a community of its own—a place where team members become family, over a cup of coffee and a warm croissant. A place where stories are shared and lasting friendships are formed. 

We believe in the power of breaking bread together and creating lasting memories.
