…all day, everyday, something hot & fresh
is always coming out of the oven
bread & rolls
No matter the type, style, size or shape bread you seek, our shelves are where you are sure to find it.
Daily, we craft over 217 varieties of fine bread & rolls. True flavors, tastes, textures & shapes, from Italy, France, Germany, Portugal & Spain, and Eastern Europe. Full bodied American loaves. Egg Challahs, twists & knots.
Undeniably the finest bread made is Hearth Bread.
Baked on the very surface of the oven…the hearth…the dough forming each loaf is enveloped in soft heat, radiating from all directions, in our unique, custom fabricated ovens.
Mixed from the finest natural ingredients, to our time honored family recipes, hearth doughs have a strong, robust character. This enables the breads thus formed to undergo multiple kneedings, mouldings and proofings necessary to full development of the subtle flavors, textures, crust & crumb which only hearth baking can achieve.
Grimaldi’s blends today’s technologies with four generations of hand bread making experience. A unique melding results. Peel boards coated with corn cones cradle each loaf during a series of slow proofings totaling more than twelve hours. Live steam pervades the atmosphere within the baking ovens. Slow, natural air cooling precedes display & packing. Nothing is rushed. No corners are cut. Yet everything proceeds at an efficient pace.
Turnovers to Strudles, and everything in between, our Danish is slow mixed in small batches. Hand sheeted and formed. Delicately baked. Carefully finished by hand. Available throughout the day.
Italian & French pastries from mini to large. Napoleons, Eclairs, Cream Puffs, Lobster Tails, Sfogliatelle and a host of others. Completely hand-made, daily, by our experienced pastry chefs.
