Meet the bread brothers—Carlsbad born and raised–Clinton and Louie Prager. Siblings with a shared passion for baking traditional, wholesome bread. Natural. Hand-shaped bread.
When you visit our bakery or our stands at the farmers’ markets you can expect bread that not only tastes delicious but also respects history and the environment. This is bread the way it used to be. Bread the way it ought to be.
With Clinton’s degree in music from U.C. Santa Cruz and Louie’s degree in plant biology from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, the pair has harmoniously combined their talents in art and science to craft a community bakery and a small retail bread shop.
Step inside…savor the aroma of their freshly-baked offerings…and step back in time.
