Beach Lake Bakery - Beach Lake, PA

Beach Lake Bakery is located in the small hamlet of Beach Lake, five miles west of the Delaware River, in northeast Pennsylvania. Co-founded in 2003 by an Englishman from Manchester and an American from New York City, this small artisanal bakery specializes in European-style breads and American pies and cookies. Brian and Lisa Woods, the husband and wife team who continue to manage the day-to-day operation, began baking small batches of breads in the garage of their house, delivering loaves to their friends, who became their first customers.

After the demand for their handcrafted baked goods began to exceed their oven space, the couple decided to build a small barn next to their home to house a proper bakery. Their son assisted with production and deliveries, and their daughter ran the bakery’s retail store. Using only untreated flours and no preservatives, the couple produces about 500 loaves on an average Saturday, ranging from French baguettes and Italian semolina to sourdough and rye. Other baked goods include pies, cookies, specialty cakes, croissants, and Danish. 

The bakery is open to the public on Saturdays. Since quantities are limited, advance orders are recommended.

Oh my, these breads are so good! I love the Walnut Bread with Saints (raisins) and also the fugues, which comes in two flavors: garlic or olive. My mouth is watering, just writing this. Beach Lake Bakery you must visit! Every Saturday 9 am to 4 pm - you can get your own little slice of heaven.
