Bake-At-Home Goods

The Bench Bakehouse is closed on Valentine’s Day, so to make up for it, they’re offering advanced online ordering at thebenchbakehouse.com, and delicious bake-at-home options so that you can enjoy freshly baked goods on February 14.

Heart-Shaped Baguettes ($8): New this year for you to take and bake. Sourdough baguettes shaped like hearts that are partially baked. Take them with you on a weekend getaway to enjoy a warm fresh baguette on Valentine’s Day. Advanced ordering online is encouraged as these will sell out fast!

Pain au Chocolat ($15 for a four-pack): Filled with delicious dark chocolate and ready for baking at home.

Cinnamon Buns ($17 for a four-pack): Topped with cream cheese.
