Pane d'Amore Bakery comes to Bainbridge

Bainbridge Island will soon have a new source for locally-baked bread! Pane d'Amore Artisan Bakery is readying their new store in Lynwood Center, between Lynwood Theatre and the Treehouse Café. The store will open early next year. Until then manager Elliot Yakush, the son of Pane d'Amore founder Linda Yakush, comes to Lynwood to sell bread from his truck every Monday from noon to 4 pm.

Pane d'Amore opened its first bakery and retail outlet in Port Townsend four years ago. Since then is has opened a second location in Sequim, and is now expanding to Bainbridge Island. The bakery uses all organic ingredients, and bakes between 10 and 20 varieties of bread every day. I've enjoyed many of them in past trips to Port Townsend; the fig-anise bread is awesome as a wrapper for a lamb sandwich. This week I tried their new Nash's Miche, which is made with wheat and rye flour grown by Nash's Farm in Sequim.

We met with Yakush last Monday to learn more about his plans. He explained that in addition to bread, the store will feature pastries, local cheeses, and other local/artisan foods when it opens next February. Until then you can keep track of new developments by following @panedamore on Twitter.
