2019 Best of the Boat bakery: Smell That Bread Bakery

Follow your nose up 11th Street to find Best Bakery winner Smell That Bread Bakery. Offering a variety of bread and pastries, including its top-selling twice-baked almond croissants, pain au chocolate croissants and mouth-watering cinnamon rolls, the bakery’s front room lets you sample their goods and coffees inside, while an outside deck overlooks Soda Creek. 

“Our wholesale accounts have championed us since day one,” says co-owner Juli Gordon, crediting partners Cafe Diva, Laundry, Mambo’s and more. “They’ve given us a voice and strong customer base by sharing our product with their customers.”

She adds that they work hard to offer new flavors and bread/pastry options throughout each season, and she credits her staff for ensuring customers feel welcome and informed.

“A lot of them have stayed with us since the beginning years at the Dutch door,” she says.
