  • Breaking Bread Bakery: Made from scratch

     The sweet smell of baking bread, cakes, cookies and muffins has been wafting from a small shop on South Walters Street since February. The “Breaking Bread Bakery” (a not-so-subtle reference to the Bible) sells bread and other goods – all made from scratch.

    For lunch, they also offer a bag lunch, which includes a sandwich (made with their own bread), chips, and a soda.

    Fran Dowell of Magnolia is the owner. She bakes everything herself and says that since it opened, the bakery has been “pretty steady but not overwhelming.”
