We are a small-batch artisanal bread bakery creating sourdough breads, proudly situated in the heart of beautiful Hintonburg, Ottawa. We were established in 2013, and still going strong! We believe a bakery isn’t quite complete without the smells and tastes of exceptional coffee, so we offer a variety of coffee¬†at our cozy espresso bar. We are currently proudly serving up Detour Coffee (Burlington, ON), Happy Goat Coffee (Ottawa, ON), and Barking Barista (Ottawa, ON).

We strive to give customers the sensory experience of a bakery full of aromatic breads of many varieties, with beautiful aesthetics, every day. Our menu is simple. Our slow and thoughtful techniques are meant to extract the complex and wonderful trapped flavour potential of the grains themselves. We are a back-to-basics kind of place. Straightforward, delicious, and consistent.

We do our best to support local suppliers because we love our home and we love the bounty that comes from it. We are dedicated to sustainable environmental practices, and creating a healthy and prosperous work environment within our own walls. Our vision when we opened Bread by Us was to bake bread that we can feel proud of. Simultaneously, it was important for us to build a team around us that can sustain the bakery in the long-term. The growth of the bakery over the years has been deliberately calculated so that our product quality does not suffer (and hopefully has improved) and so that we (the people who make the food) can remain healthy and happy. Oftentimes, businesses are built at the expense of someone or something – we are striving to turn that tide, at least within our own 4 walls. We hope you feel that thoughtfulness when you enter our shop.

We are serious about what we like
– bread & coffee –
& aim to give you the best loaf
and brew that we can.
