Process


At its core, the Philly Bread method is focused on sourcing grains directly from the farmer and pulling as much flavor from them as possible. Pre-fermented flour and toasted grains help craft all of our dough. The addition of a ripe poolish, mild sourdough, and house-processed corn or roasted barley gives our bread distinct flavor, texture, and keeping qualities.  

We source the highest quality grains and mill them just before mixing the dough. Milling our flours allows us to unlock maximum flavor. To understand the importance of milling grain at our bakery, just ask yourself, what good coffee shop sources pre-ground coffee beans? What great restaurant orders pre-minced garlic?  

Those who care about their craft take every step of the process seriously (and we do).

Place


You can find Philly Bread at 4905 North 5th Street in the Olney ("ahl-i-nee") neighborhood. We're just a block north of Roosevelt Boulevard on 5th Street.

We're proud to be a part of a community of bakers, with a handful of bakeries just blocks from our store.

Philly Bread is committed to the city after which it's named. We strive to provide our neighbors with a quality product at a reasonable price.
