Texas French Bread was founded in 1981. Years later, in addition to being the top purveyor of fresh artisan breads, it also became one of the first restaurants in Austin to adopt a sustainable, farm-to-table concept. Today, they continue to produce fantastic breads and operate a popular eatery in the same space. Baguettes, sourdough (white, wheat, rye), ciabatta, whole wheat, honey wheat sandwich, raisin pecan, tea breads, assorted croissants and pastries are all available for purchase. Consider yourself lucky if you manage to grab a loaf of Murph Bread, Texas French Bread’s best and least available bread.
The first things that come to mind when thinking of Easy Tiger are beer, ping pong and pretzels. But beware: their impressive in-house bakery on Sixth St (plus a new outpost at Fareground) is nothing to overlook. Accessible directly from the street, the bakery also supplies Austin's best restaurants with baguettes and buns on the regular. Be sure to try all of head baker David Norman's specialties: croissants, Danish pastries, levains, German rye, pretzel buns and baguettes.
