America's Best Bread Bakeries

Slide 2 of 18

Brookline, MA: Clear Flour Bread

Christy Timon and Abram Faber are revered as early champions of classic European baking who continue to hunt down recipes for their French, Italian and German breads like a hearty volkornbrot studded with chopped rye berries. The most loyal customers know the breads are baked on rotation; the fire-roasted tomato fougasse, for instance, comes out warm from the oven every Saturday at 1 p.m.
