Love it or mock it, the minimalist bakery inside Four Barrel Coffee came into prominence thanks to its now-notorious $4 toast. Not only is that label inaccurate (toast is only $3.50), it sells this bakery way short. The Mill is the love child of Josey Baker (his real name), who turns out legendary loaves of sumptuous sour wheat, country, rye and Wonder breads, along with chocolate claws, gouda tarts, morning buns and pistachio-blackberry croissants. But frankly, it’s the thick, chewy slabs of toast—slathered with seasonal toppings ranging from almond butter with Maldon sea salt to cinnamon sugar, pumpkin spread and cream cheese with honey—that people line up for in droves. Why fight it?
