Shadeau Breads

 While attending a workshop at Higher Branches on Main Street in Over-the-Rhine I noticed this sweet little bakery that sits adjacent.  I paid a visit yesterday and it took me back to 2004 when I spent 5 weeks travelling Europe; frequenting the neighborhood bakeries for their delicious pastries and warm atmosphere.

Shadeau Breads has been baking in OTR for 15 years and does a great business selling to up-scale restaurants in the Cincinnati area as well as to other local patrons.  They also offer soup/sandwich lunch options served daily at their store.

I picked up a 1lb loaf of the multi-grain, delicious!  They also offer a variety of baguette, sandwich loafs and wonderful pastries and focaccia made with fresh ingredients and baked on-site daily.

On my next visit I will be partaking in the pastry followed by the focaccia (see below).  I have a feeling I will become a regular at this wonderful old-world bakery located appropriately in historic OTR.
