Riverfront Times' Description

Located in the Vandora Theater building along Cherokee Street, just west of Jefferson Avenue, Black Bear Bakery has been baking organic, whole-grain breads and bagels, cookies and cakes, and pies and pastries since 1998. The worker-owned and -operated shop also serves a neighborhood brunch on Saturdays featuring an assortment of morning and midday favorites such as buckwheat pancakes, eggs, quiches and various vegetarian and vegan items. Their café hours change on occasion, so it is not a bad idea to call ahead before heading out to eat. Lunch items include vegetarian entrées, such as a tempeh Rueben with swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Russian dressing, and a vegetarian muffaletta with vegetarian sausage, veggies and flavored cream cheese on a muffaletta roll.

    Black Bear is 'the' place to get bread in South City. Breakfast on the weekends is always tasty. Great, friendly atmosphere.

    Their wholeweat sourdough looks so yummy. Alas it is to dense for my taste buds. I would go with their pumpernickel instead.

    Voted Best Bread in RFT's Best of STL 2013. Known for its near-century-old live-culture Lickhalter recipe rye breads. http://bit.ly/19ahAEy
