If bread is your love language, you’ll likely fall head over heels when you visit this new-ish bakery and cafe in Tonawanda.
Whether you’re in need of a cup of comfort, dreaming of sweet treats, or craving a hearty, flavorful sandwich you’ll find all of the above at Miller’s Thumb Bakery & Café.
When Miller’s Thumb Bakery & Café opened their doors in December of 2022, they decided to bring their own grain mill to Tonawanda, allowing them to bake with ultra fresh flour which results in highly flavorful breads that still maintain their nutritive qualities.
At Miller’s Thumb Bakery & Café, they don’t believe in shortcuts. Sure, it may be easier, but it’s never quite as satisfying in their opinion. They tested all sorts of new textures and flavors before opening.
They believe that the best and freshest flour becomes the best and freshest bread and pastries, so naturally everything here is baked fresh. They mill their own grain daily so they are able to bake with the purest and most flavorful flour. Their process is what takes them to the next level in terms of freshness.
This local bakery has all the goods, including breads, pastries, sandwiches, and espresso drinks. Specifically, you’ll find fresh traditional and European-inspired breads and bagels as well as a rotating selection of traditional pastries, including croissants, scones, danishes, and cookies here.
Plus they have an all-day café menu, which includes seasonal sandwiches and salads. When it comes to sandwich philosophy, they believe less is more. This allows quality ingredients to shine, including their flavorful breads.
Customers often ask them to play favorites. When it comes to pastries, there’s no contest. According to their social media, it’s their Kouign-amann which has layers of butter and sugar to make this Breton cake deeply satisfying. When you take a bite, you can expect chewy with a slight crust and a noticeable natural fermentation flavor.
