They sell tasty treats such as Upstate Bialys, Seasonal Wholegrain Muffins and Buttermilk Scones, Vegan Cinnamon Buns (SO GOOD), Biscotti, Crispy Brown Rice Energy Treats, English Muffins and Rolls and Daily Breads including Hearty Multigrain, Rustic Italian, Rye, Whole Wheat, Spelt, White and Whole Wheat Sourdough Baguettes and creative Specialty Loaves.
They are also offering Specialty Foccacia topped with local produce and cheese. And let me be completely frank, it's addicting. I tried one that had roasted garlic on it and if I ate one sample, I ate twenty. So damn good. On Sundays they serve light brunch, too, with buttery croissants and seasonal quiche. You know I love a quiche.
But what's even cooler is that they are environmentally- and community-minded. Arrive to the bakery by foot, bike or bus? 10% discount. Bring your own mug for coffee because they are reducing waste by not using paper cups (they also have some mugs on hand). They donate leftovers to the Mercy House Women's Shelter and Refugee Resettlement Program of Albany Catholic Charities. And they share their kitchen with another local producer, Gatherer's Granola, a maker of really awesome granola.
It's been such a great experience getting to know All Good Bakers and having the opportunity to enjoy fresh, from-scratch and delicious baked goods and bread made with locally-sourced, organic ingredients. A friend asked me why I was so pumped about this bakery, as in "Are they paying you to advertise?" and I was like, "Nope, but I really really want to be able to continue to buy quality items made with quality ingredients by quality people." And judging by the crazy crowds there on opening weekend, it looks like they're around to stay :)
Stop by and visit Nick and Britin!
