BreadHive's new window

Business has been good for the BreadHive Co-op Bakery since their opening on Buffalo’s West Side in April. From the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market on Saturdays and the Larkin Market on Thursdays to a few stores around town (Lexington Co-op and Guercio and Sons in Buffalo and Farmers & Artisans in Snyder) and their Crust Belt bread share, they’ve established quite a few ways to get your hands on their bread, bagels and granola.

However, if you follow their Instagram account, you’ll know what I mean when I say I wish there was a way to get their stuff around every corner in WNY. Seeing their drool-worthy breads using combinations like Sourdough with sun dried tomato and Plato Dale basil often makes me want to run out and get some for breakfast!

Lucky for us, they are well on their way to making their products more accessible to the public. Starting September 1, BreadHive will be utilizing the small window located in the front of their building for more than just Crust Belt pickups. The public will be able to visit BreadHive at 123 Baynes St. in Buffalo during certain hours, three days a week to get not only bread, bagels and granola by BreadHive but also cheese and yogurt from First Light Creamery and coffee from Public Espresso. Good news or what?

In order to celebrate the small window doing big things, BreadHive is hosting a window grand opening party on Labor Day, September 1 from 10am – 2pm. “The public is invited to celebrate our new window, with music, coffee pourovers from Public, and plenty of baked goods available including yogurt parfaits, deals on bread, and combo deals on bagels, cheese and coffee,” explained the co-founders of BreadHive. The event will offer a special deal of a bagel with first light chevre and a 10oz. Coffee for $3. Yum!

The regular window menu and hours will begin the next day on Tuesday, September 2. On the regular menu you can expect to find BreadHive’s usual farmer’s market array paired with first light chevre and yogurt. Plus, public espresso coffee will be on hand.

If you’ve been dying to get your hands on some BreadHive bread or bagels, cheese and yogurt from First Light or a pour over coffee by Public, Labor Day is a great opportunity, as are Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays from here on out.

While you’re there, thank the people that are making the effort to get all these products together in one place on a regular basis. They’re making Buffalo better one edible work of art at a time.


Window hours starting Tuesday Septemper 2, 2014:

Sunday 10am-3pm
Tuesday 10am-3pm
Friday 7:30-9:30 am with bagels and granola, no bread

Once you start visiting and decide it makes sense to get BreadHive products on a more regular basis, check out their bread share, The Crust Belt.
