Brown, White, Multi-Grain Or Sour Dough: Where To Get The Best Bread In Town

    From hot-buttered toast to double-decker sandwiches and crusty buns to grilled panini – where would we be without our daily bread? There are disappointing loaves-a-plenty on supermarket shelves, but we’ve separated the wheat from the chaff with our handy list. So look no further than our ultimate bread bible and check out our list of the best bread suppliers in Bangalore.

    Café Cassia

    Cafe Cassia & Deli

    Sivanchetti Gardens, Bangalore

    The sandwiches at Chef Abhijit Saha’s courtyard café are some of the best in town. Thankfully, you can also pick up their freshly baked bread, and try and recreate them at home. We love their soft and flavourful focaccia. Disclaimer: Due to COVID-19, the cafe isn't open and is NOT delivering. Make sure to call before you plan a visit in the future.

    Price: INR 50 upwards

    Café Noir

    Cafe Noir

    Ashok Nagar, Chennai

    Café Noir makes the list, on account of having the most authentic Parisian baguette which we’ve tasted outside of Paris. And at INR 60 it’s not too expensive, either. Disclaimer: Due to the COVID-19 situation, Cafe Noir is presently shut for dine-in and delivery. They are however open for takeaway but we recommend you wait for when they begin safe, contactless home delivery.

    Price: INR 60 upwards

    Desserted

    Desserted

    Vasanth Nagar, Bangalore

    Aside from a hearty Wholewheat Sourdough Loaf, Baguette and Garlic Bread, you can order puffs and  mini-tarts – perfect for packing up and taking on picnics. Feel free to pick up burger buns, pizza bases, and other bakes (where you can pickup individual components and make it yourself at home) The convenience factor is also great – home delivery is available city-wide. Disclaimer: Abiding by all safety guidelines desserted is open for delivery and is available on Swiggy and Zomato.

    Price: INR 30 upwards

    Foodhall

    Foodhall

    Ulsoor, Bangalore

    Being as this is the place to head for all things gourmet, it’s not surprising that we sniffed out some of the city’s best bread here, too. Ever heard of Quinoa Bread? We hadn’t either, but if you want to introduce superfoods into your loaf, then this is where to get it. The Arabic style soft pitas are as authentic as anything you’ll find in the Middle East, best eaten with za’atar, of course! Disclaimer: Due to COVID-19, Foodhall isn't open and is NOT delivering. Make sure to call before you plan a visit in the future.

    Price: INR 60 upwards

    Ganache

    Ganache, at The Ritz Carlton caters to the five-star crowd, and you can’t get much swankier than their Wine and Pecan or Oat and Cranberry loaves. With prices starting from INR 200, the breads have the price tag to match, but are definitely worth it for special occasions. Disclaimer: Due to COVID-19, the cafe is temporarily closed and isn't delivering either. Make sure to call before you plan a visit soon.

    Price: INR 200 upwards

    Nature’s Basket

    Lavonne

    Lavonne

    Indira Nagar, Bangalore

    Apart from having some of the best croissants in the city, Lavonne has a small but mighty selection of breads. Choose from a Sandwich loaf (which they’ll hand-slice for you on request), Focaccia, Baguette or a Multigrain loaf topped with oats, sunflower seeds, poppy seeds, linseed and flak seeds.

    Lazy Suzy

    Lazy Suzy

    Indira Nagar, Bangalore

    The new kid on the block is fast gaining a reputation for standout bread, with bonus points for the fact that they bake a gluten-free option which tastes as good as the regular stuff. With no yeast involved this really is slow bread – and it’s all the better for it. Don’t leave without trying the Pullman’s – perfect for those who just want white bread done right. Disclaimer: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the cafe is closed for dine-in but you can place orders online through Dunzo or Swiggy Genie and have it delivered doorstep.

    Lluvia Bakery

    Lluvia Bakery

    You can’t score a healthier loaf than Durga’s organic offerings at Lluvia. Reintroduce millets into your life with her latest addition to the range – the high fibre Mixed Millet Loaf. We are partial to the Cinnamon Swirl, Cranberry and Walnut and the Sourdough too. There’s even gluten-free and keto options available. These breads are heavy, so you can get your fill with just a slice or two.  Disclaimer: Despite the COVID-19 situation, you can order in from the bakery and have doorstep delivery using Swiggy, Zomato or Dunzo. 

    Price: INR 55 upwards

    Patisserie Nitash

    Patisserie Nitash

    Cooke Town, Bangalore

    Nitash Lalkaka will warn you that his bakes are not your typical ‘airy, shop-bought loaves’, which is absolutely fine by us. Better known for sweet treats, Nitash also creates incredible breads including Walnut Sourdough, Crusty Baguette, and Wholewheat Sandwich bread, as the fancy takes him. Join the WhatsApp group to find out what he’s making in a particular week, then collect from Cooke Town. Batches can be as small as 15 loaves, so get on to it fast!

    Smoke House Deli

    With just five breads in the range SHD has clearly put all their energy into getting them just right. There’s Baguette, Focaccia, a Multigrain Cob, German Rye, German Pumpernickel (which is less heavy, and perhaps less authentic than we’ve tasted elsewhere) as well as a stand out Corn Bread. You’ll recognise some from the cute aperitif bread baskets which SHD serve up while you peruse the menu. Disclaimer: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, only the 100 feet Road, BTM Layout SHD is delivering.

    Price: INR 80 upwards

    The Cake Shop

    The Leela Palace’s bakery doesn’t fall below the standards of the rest of the hotel either, so the bread here is pretty special. We can wolf down the Tomato Bocconcini Brioche or Cherry Tomato and Olive Focaccia just as they come – no butter needed! A less indulgent option is the Semolina and Oatbran Loaf. And they’re not too expensive, so don’t shy away. Disclaimer: Due to COVID-19, the cafe is temporarily closed and isn't delivering either. Make sure to call before you plan a visit in the future.

    Price: INR 200 plus tax

    The Rolling Pin

    The Rolling Pin

    Indira Nagar, Bangalore

    With Café Max one of our favourite lunch spots, we nearly died and went to heaven when they launched The Rolling Pin Bakery. Shweta Gupta and her German business partner Peter Laass have the best selection of authentic European breads, including Sourdough, Rye bread, and it’s slightly sweeter cousin Pumpernickel. Disclaimer: Due to the current COVID-19 situation, the bakery is personally delivering to doorstep, connect with them on their IG handle. If they don't deliver to your area, you can have the bread Dunzoed.

    Price: INR 45 upwards

    Thom’s Bakery

    This city institution on Wheeler Road more than proves that Old Bangalore can hold its own against swanky new bakeries. We can guarantee that you won’t find better sliced milk loaf, burger buns or masala bread rolls. We’re not as sure about the bread buns infused with tooty frooties, but they’re certainly one-of-a-kind. Plus, the heavenly smell of freshly-baked bread when you land up there. Disclaimer: Thom's Bakery is open for self-pick or delivery via Swiggy Genie and Dunzo.

    Price: INR 30 upwards

    Sour House

    Sour House

    There's nothing we don't love about the carb-delivering local hero!
