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.
