Some of the best restaurants in the city get their baked goods from Lost Bread Co. But the Kensington bakery only opens its doors to the public on weekends, and when it does, it sells out of everything within hours - whether that’s loaves of sourdough or salty-sweet pretzel shortbread cookies. If you want the best bread in the city, waking up before 10am on a Saturday morning is in your near future.
