The Bakery

Inside Mayfield Bakery, artisan bakers produce many types of slow-proofed bread every day. Drawing inspiration from classic European bakeries, bakers let the hand-shaped breads rest from overnight up to 24 hours, allowing the yeasts to expand and develop intense, deep flavors. This “slow proofing” technique produces a thick, dark crust and a richer, denser, more complex, and slightly sour-tasting loaf. Rusticity is the goal here, and it shows in the baguettes, boules and country loaves that are pulled fresh from the stone hearth and ovens daily.

The bakery also offers a selection of traditional pastries, such as croissants, Danish and morning buns for breakfast and purchase throughout the day. Desserts, bars, tarts, cookies and exquisite cakes like you have never seen before are also available. In addition, the bakery prepares all of the desserts available next door at the Cafe.

The bakery is open daily to provide you with a wonderful cup of drip-to-order, single estate coffee and pastries that can be enjoyed at our outdoor tables or on the go. Stop by on your way home to pick up a loaf of your favorite fresh baked bread to be served with your dinner at home—a petit strawberry tart wouldn’t hurt either.
