The Merchants of Whitefish Bay strive to improve our community and support all of our Merchant members. We aim to highlight the local establishments to increase awareness for everyone in our neighborhood and beyond.
Four simple ingredients – flour, water, salt and yeast.
When combined together and shaped by hand using time-honored techniques, and baked in an Italian hearth stone oven, these simple ingredients are transformed into a true work of art!
Nestled in the heart of downtown Whitefish Bay, Breadsmith offers a wide assortment of made from scratch artisan breads and sweets. Each of the neighborhood bakery’s fresh from the oven loaves, rolls and buns feature only the highest quality ingredients, without additives or preservatives. Breadsmith’s flour is specially milled for the bakery and is ideal for artisan bread making.
Breadsmith specializes in crusty, European-style loaves such as French, Rustic Italian and Ciabatta as well as a wide range of specialty and dessert breads made from your favorite herbs, spices, fruits, and nuts. Its locally customized menu features more than a dozen different breads each day, with classics such as Sourdough, Traditional Rye and 100% Whole Wheat offered along with a wide array of flavorful coffee cakes, muffins, cookies and scones.
For more than 20 years, Breadsmith of Whitefish Bay has actively supported the community it serves. At the end of each day, the bakery’s unsold bread is donated to local non-profit organizations and soup kitchens to benefit those in need. Breadsmith also supports local schools, churches and other organizations with community fundraisers and special events.
Breadsmith bakeries can currently be found in 17 states, but the company proudly considers Whitefish Bay its home. Its franchising office is located across the street on Silver Spring Drive in the Berkeley Building, and new franchise owners spend significant time in Whitefish Bay learning traditional artisan bread making techniques.
