Their Christmas Stollen is amazing. I'm not a stollen person; I generally give a wide berth to any breads with fruits and stuff inside but I did really like the sample I had from the True Loaf. I'm looking forward to getting into ours around Christmas. They are $17 each.

I'd also highly recommend the chestnut brioche that they are making this time of year.

Great Baguettes! I haven't tried their other breads but I'm sure they are just as delicious. They also sell the bread at Serious Cheese on Bank street!

C'est du très bon pain.
Encore excellent le lendemain.
Je suis très heureux d'avoir trouvé une très bonne boulagerie.
Et elles sont très très rares à Ottawa.

I finally managed to drive by here when the bakery was open! Often I am by late in the day and think to myself, I must try that place.

I purchase a fougasse with caramelized onions and I can't remember what else in it and a white baguette.

The fougasse was very good. The bread had a nice chewy texture.

I was a little disappointed with the baguette. I felt that the crust was too thick, making it a bit of a work out to eat.

The prices, on the other hand, were very reasonable. Sometimes, I am floored by the prices at some of the bakeries in town.

I dropped by and got 1 pear & blue cheese loaf, 1 mushroom fougasse & 2 "decadent buns" which have chocolate, ginger, orange and almond (pics below). I'm not a ginger fan but it worked in these!
I didn't pay attention to the exact breakdown, but for all of this I paid $11, which is VERY reasonable imo. I'm not a bread expert but I really like the texture of this bread. Very soft and just crusty enough. The pear & blue cheese was awesome.
I hear there's a chocolate chili loaf which I didn't see but I'll be back to try it. Also, they told me they were closed this coming week of March 22.

I picked up a few loaves of bread this morning, one of which was the chocolate cocoa chili loaf. Amazing! Would make an excellent French toast. The blue cheese and pear loaf is equally delicious.

If you haven't been to this bakery yet, you must go. I have had the fortune to try every type of bread and buns they offer and they are all wonderful. Their date/fennell bread is amazing as is the Chai spice. They close early though, and after 1 pm their bread (or what is left from the day) is available at the Red Table, next door which is also worth a try! I can also attest to their bread lasting for about a week.

This sourdough miche is quite fantastic! An excellent chewy dark crust and a hearty, moist crumb. Very reminiscent of the dark loaves I enjoyed as a kid in Switzerland (albeit more tangy, since it's sourdough).

The entire giant loaf goes for $12, but they're happy to cut it in half ($6) or quarters ($3). The half loaf I purchased was already a day old, so the price was $5. The baker/cashier assured me that she keeps it for a whole week at home. I had the last bit just yesterday and I can safely say that it really does keep for a week!

I'm really keen to try more bread products from this excellent bakery! There was a steady stream of customers while I was there, but even so I think this is one of Ottawa's undiscovered gems.
