This is the best bakery in downtown Durham. The heart behind the art shows in everything they put out from the delicious breads, to the decadent pastries.

Loaf is one of the most wonderful destinations in existence. We are so lucky to have it in Durham. You cannot go wrong when you pick out a pastry or loaf of bread here. The flatbreads are the best lunch deal in town!

We didn't know what to expect from here. We were lucky enough to have few frequenters to suggest us some french pastries to take home. I don't remember what we ordered but I can recall it tasted great. I will definitely get some pastries to-go from here when I am in the vicinity. Parking can be a challenge but you would have to park in a parking garage nearby and it is not far away from there. I felt the staff was a bit snobbish and wasn't helpful in suggesting pastries to first timers like us.

Super good! Both of their sweet and savory pastries are awesome! Not so cheap though, but I comprehend they take the time to make every single one of them so the price is reasonable. 🙂❤️🍪😍

Delicious pastries and rotating variety of eclectic baked goods. Check out the cold case for a delicious cool pastry treat or pick up some fresh baked artisanal bread, just don't get all the rugelach before I get some!

Excellent bakery serving yummy things like Canelé. If you don't know what this is, go and try it. It's French, that's all I'm saying.

Loaf serves up authentic French pastries and bread from an inauspicious location downtown Durham. Don’t miss this delightful bakery tucked away in the center of town. The service is outstanding and the food is genuinely divine. You’ll think you died and went to Paris.

Loaf is a small spot - a grab 'n go type of place. I've had every pain au chocolat in town and theirs is my favorite. Perhaps pricey but you get what you pay for. Every pastry I've tried here has been fantastic.

I doubt the best time to to to Loaf is at 1 pm on a Saturday, but even so what we grabbed to nosh from the limited remaining selection was fully yummy. Now the true challenge is going to be making it from CH in time to sample the full counter's worth some morning.

Great bakery bread is baked every morning. You can tell how fresh the bread is when you taste it.

Fabulous little bakery in downtown Durham! They have been great with flexing to the times and allow for easy ordering and curbside pickup. Every day they have flatbreads that can accommodate for vegans and carnivores alike. Their pastries/sweeter items are delicious and all worth trying.
