OPEN AGAIN -- St. Paul Bakery Location

Our St. Paul location is open again!

In late July the building our St. Paul bakery shares with Jamba Juice, a barber shop and the the St. Paul Cheese Shop sustained exterior damage. The building damage knocked out the utilities and required a full replacement or repair of the telephone, internet, electric and gas service. Needless to say, without these business critical elements we had to close!

Thanks to many extraordinary efforts and skilled work, the building is reset to a better-than-before condition. The hiatus also allowed us to do a deep clean of the bakery. Additionally, we were able to conduct a regular maintenance service of and do some fine-tuning to the oven.

We're excited to be back, ready to go starting Friday, August 6.

Thank you for your patience. We look forward to welcoming you back!

BREAKING NEWS: St. Paul Location Temporarily Closed

Early Sunday morning a fire caused damage to the utility service and back exterior of the building our bakery shares with other businesses (Jamba Juice and The Cheese Shop). Without electricity we cannot provide our baked daily breads. Therefore, until power is restored, our St. Paul bakery location will be temporarily closed. The repairs will likely take more than a few days.

Thankfully, no one was hurt and the damage was not structural and mostly contained to the building's exterior. We will update you as soon as we have more details.

In the meantime, our two other bakeries will be able to provide the full range of bakery items. They are located in Edina and Minnetonka.

Closer to the St. Paul side is the Fresh Thyme Grocery Store in the Prospect Park neighborhood on University Avenue (just past KSTP's studios). Fresh Thyme carries a nice range of our daily breads. Please check them out at 24 30th Ave SE, Minneapolis, MN 55414.

Blueberries Have Arrived!

Fresh blueberries from our region have a very limited season. The harvest starts in early June and ends just a few weeks later. This is when we bake Blueberry Scones and Lemon Blueberry Muffins and Breads.

We source our blueberries from a key growing area in Michigan that harvest berries with just the right profile for baking. The blueberries we use have a perfect balance of bright colors, tart taste and inviting aromas. Enjoy!

Learn More About Our New Rewards Program

Our new rewards program will replace the Baker's Dozen punch cards. You can sign up by downloading the Breadsmith app, (at the Apple Store, or the Google Play store) or by registering online (we prefer you download the app). Once you've joined, all of your purchases will build rewards.

Just signing up earns you a complimentary daily loaf!

Why change programs?

Ultimately, it's to help improve tracking your earned rewards and to minimize the loss of paper punch cards. Formerly, we gave a punch for each loaf purchased. But with new items such as granola, and standards like muffins and scones what earned a "punch" or "stamp" became vague. So, we worked toward purchase value. But, then how was a $6.48 purchase translated into "punches" compared to a purchase of $6.54. Seems easy, until you are the customer two cents short of gaining the bonus of rounding-up! Even at our best there was always the possibility of losing a Baker's Dozen card, or sending it through the wash!

I'm convinced there is a nearly full one in a car I sold a few years ago!

So, 

Now, with each purchase you make: merchandise or bread, at whatever amount, it all will add to your rewards. One dollar spent earns one point. Sixty points are worth five dollars of in-store value.

The attached PDF gives more details.

We appreciate you, and we will continue to add punches and redeem the Baker's Dozen cards through October 1, 2021. So, keep checking the glove box, you pockets and seasonal purses/wallets to find those partially filled punch cards!

And, be sure to sign up today by downloading the Breadsmith app.
