Product Of The Month

Every month we spotlight a bread or product that we sell in our cafés. We hope you enjoy learning a little about them. Stop by any of our locations to sample these treats and take something home to share.

Pane Francese

Pane Francese is a long thin loaf that is the Italian version of a baguette. Rather than rolling the dough tightly into shape as you do with a French-style baguette, the wet dough is cut into batons. Local whole wheat flour from Fairhaven Mill and a bit of barley flour add additional flavor and texture. The resulting loaf has a light honeycomb texture, gently crisp crust, and mild nutty flavor. We often use our Pane Francese loaves in our cafés for sandwiches. It also makes a great table bread, served simply with unsalted butter or olive oil.
