Novel Breads Co. is a new concept company. It is part artisan bread micro-bakery, part bread store, part independent bookstore and part gourmet food store.

Each bread is made with real sourdough starter and a blend of locally grown and milled flours as well as fresh and handmade ingredients. Many of the breads are also inspired by books read by the baker.
