I had a coffee and bought pastries. Be nice if they had barista machine. But excellent pastries and bread. Get there early for more choice they well out quickly.

This is an excellent bakery. Flan pâtissier has always been one of my favorite pastries, and their passion fruit interpretation blew my mind. Make sure to try their breads, butter croissants and pains au chocolat, they are all excellent.

Amazing pastries with a great vibe. The shop has a limit of 3 people in the store at a time. All the things i brought tasted fresh and so good. While you shop you can catch a glimpse of people making fresh breads in the back which was so cool. They have a wide selection and i will definitely go again!

There's really no reason to go to any other bakery in town (OK maybe Guglhupf). Loaf is next level. And they have stuff you can't get elsewhere like caneles (my son's fav) and Paris brest (my fav). The chocolate hazelnut croissant will change your life.

So many kinds of delicious bread that it is hard to decide! The seeded sourdough is amazing, The pumpernickel and seeded rye are wonderful, and the croissants and coconut macaroons are the best.

Conflicted. On the one hand I want to gatekeep so I have an abundance of things to buy at all times. On the other hand, I want nothing but continued success for these folks, and they deserve the love. Not that they need my review for either of those things to happen, because the pastries, bread ,and shelf-stable baked goods speak for themselves. Why are the croissants so good? Why are the caneles perfect? Been a steady customer for the last 3 years and don't plan on slowing down.

Alright now, I am a 58 year old man trying to maintain some kind of body shape, besides round, and this is not helping. When you hand someone, say... IDK, me, a meter-long perfect baguette 🥖 and ITS WARM, I would expect one to feel some responsibility for one's actions. But no. The guy behind the counter, wearing a mask of kindness (not a metaphor, a covid mask, out of kindness) just smizes and wishes you a good day. Who does that and sleeps at night? Pro Tip, baguettes drop at 10:30am and they'll run out so, see you at 10:30 :-) I'm the round one.

Loaf did my wedding dessert and they were phenomenal! They made small size tarts (which are a huge pain in the butt to make, I know firsthand) that were absolutely amazing. They looked beautiful, tasted wonderful and were a huge hit with my guests.

The butter croissants are devine! They are crunchy on the outside, but so soft and moist on the inside, with just the right amount buttery goodness. The bakery is also very consistent in performance. I highly recommend It's the best croissant I've had in North America.

We stopped in and grabbed a few pastries and they were amazing. The service was great. The food was so flakey, and delicious. So glad we stopped in!

This bakery changed my life. The bread is amazing. They make the best baguette I’ve ever eaten and the pastries are out of this world.

Fantastic breads and pastries made on site and a hot cup of coffee. Top notch!
