City Pages' Description

Why are there limousines and Porsches stacked up outside Turtle Bread every holiday? Because fresh baked-from-scratch pies, heart-shaped cookies, and world-class breads have profound emotional value. Pick up one of the dense, almost meaty breads here and it's clear that the bakers are competing on an international, pan-historic stage. The wild yeast, organic, and locally milled levain breads have a big, lively taste--chewy and tender inside thick, crisp, breathing crusts. Buttery croissants, goodie-studded muffins, fresh soups, tables by the great big windows, and a cheese counter to be reckoned with, and little gifty jams complete the bakery and market. Ye of meager checking accounts, take heart: No matter how profound its emotional value, a loaf of bread just doesn't cost much, so add your tattered Schwinn to the pileup outside.

    Best Soup. Ever. not to mention the bread. Carb lovers, this is your one stop shop!

    Love their breads, such as baguettes and their chocolate bread. They also have great desserts, such as cherry cheesecake, opera cake, chocolate cake, raspberry walnut tart, key lime pie. They have really good soups, salads, entrees, and sandwiches. I recommend the Ham & Jarlsberg sandwich with a bowl of the potato soup.

    if i'm in the mood for sweets, i go for the mexican brownies - cinnamon and chocolate with thick frosting. good cheesecake too.

    Try the Chocolate Bread French Toast with raspberry sauce. FTW!

    Great croissants but boy, oh boy, this place is cluttered and a little dirty. Come on, vacuum that rug in front of the bakery case, people.

    Fantastic fresh dough for homemade pizza.

    Voted City Pages top ten cupcakes! Turtle Bread has its fingers in many culinary pies, from artisan breads to deli meals to plenty of delicious sweets, and it excels in the cupcake realm as well.
