Their bread and rolls used to be all I'd buy. All natural ingredients, they WERE fantastic. Now they're using SOY. It was nice while it lasted.

This bakery is primarily a wholesale bread bakery, selling to restaurants in Lancaster and York counties.

Although they have other products, the bulk of their business is Italian bread, French bread, hoagie rolls, steak rolls, and buns, probably in that order.

The bread is made from flour, water, yeast, salt, and malt. No corn syrup, no sugar, no fat, no preservatives. It's just good bread.

It's sold unsliced. I slice the Italian loaf in half and stick it in a gallon zipper bag, and it will keep about 3 days, tops. (They sell the French loaf in a plastic bag, but the Italian in a waxed paper bag.)

I used to eat mostly high-end breads, with 7 or 12 grains, or nuts, etc., but this bread is SO good, that I'm eating it instead. I have trouble keeping it 3 days, because I really like the bread.

The hoagie rolls make fantastic toast. For some reason, the hoagie rolls seem lighter and moister than the steak rolls.

The price, August 2008, is $2.25 per loaf - a little more than the sliced Italian bread in the grocery store but only about half as much as the better breads.

The store is on the left side of Fairview, about a half block off Manor, about 3 blocks from Hershey Avenue. The store is open about 7 to 3, seven days a week, and they take food stamps, but not Visa/MC.

They have some cookies, cake by the slice, soda by the can, sometimes Danish or doughnuts, but it's basically a bread business. Fancy bread in a ring on Sunday.

It's a pain to make a stop, just for bread, but if you live nearby or you're passing through the area, I recommend checking it out.
