Clear Flour's bread is just superb -- great crust, delicious crumb, and every shape and size you could want. But best among our favorites is the delectable fougasse -- perfect crust and just the right degree of olive-oiliness, and covered with pepitas (salted toasted pumpkin seeds). Their pastries are also excellent, especially the tender-, flaky-crusted fruit tarts. One visit and you'll be back for more.

A few bites from our full experience review -
"Sit outside if you have a chance. Listen to hundred-year-old oaks and quietly passing Teslas and Priuses."
"A heavier, breakfast option was the savory croissant. It came as two rolls topped with basil and other spices, with a strong cheese aroma, some egg, and spinach it felt like a bready omelet. We can’t say we were disappointed by any of the choices Clear Flour Bread had to offer."

Clear flour uses traditional techniques, with fairly priced traditional breads (baguettes, epi, Italians and Ryes). For a bit more change they add the flour and sugar and deliver croissants worthy of our recent Paris trip, desserts and other goodies. The weekend line shouldn't make you shy away--- that's part of the experience.

The only problem with Clear Flour is EVERYTHING is fabulous!
Go over the weekend for the yummy artisan pretzels and make sure to get the mustard butter. The sticky buns are addictive!
All the breads are so delicious it's hard to leave without more than you intended to buy.
