G Cafe is serious about its bread. So serious, in fact, that you’ll find this New Haven bakery to be a hub of activity before dawn each day, as bakers, restaurant buyers, and a few early-bird customers all converge on the shop floor.
Customers looking for a healthy loaf will want to try the unique triangular rye and wheat loaf, coated in a mixture of toasted sesame and sunflower seeds that form a nice, crusty edge, while those who are craving something out-of-the-ordinary might enjoy the granola-like muesli bread, studded with hazelnuts, raisins, oats, and poppy seeds. And, of course, you simply can’t go wrong with a classic French baguette or a braided Challah loaf. Pop by after work to pick up a loaf for tonight’s dinner at 360 State.
Bread’s the main thing at this bakery, but there’s also a full breakfast and lunch menu, so take a few minutes to sit down and enjoy a chicken pesto panini, bowl of chicken noodle soup, or jambon et fromage sandwich.
