Nantucket Baking Company (615 Lyon St location)
Who has the best French loaf in Grand Rapids? Sourdough? Baguette? For bread enthusiasts, as we very much are at VGR, these are serious questions.
Whatever your all-time favorite, Nantucket Baking Company’s bread has to be near the top of the list. They offer a good selection of vegan-friendly baked goods.
Beyond bread, they also always have a vegan chocolate chip walnut cookie. Best cookie ever? No, but pretty damn good. They also have a vegan blueberry muffin and nifty individually packaged breakfast bars. Nantucket offers custom catering.
As with every other Martha’s enterprise, the staff are really knowledgeable, friendly, and happy to help with any questions you may have – which is worth double checking at any bakery. Eggs and butter sneak into all sorts of stuff you might think wouldn’t have them. As with other bakeries in town, Nantucket bakes for tons of restaurants across town. They have a pretty impressive list on their website.
