Celebrating a decade in business this year, A&J King consistently tops lists of favorite bakeries for good reason—through the years, they have stuck to a formula of artisanal methods and local ingredients to create gorgeous epis, chewy crusty sourdough, and a wide range of flavored breads, from asiago chili to oatmeal cinnamon raisin.

Insider Tip

Annarosa’s Bakery

 A chalkboard by the counter at Annarosa’s notes what time different breads will be baked each day, from hearty organic six-grain loaves to light and buttery brioche, so you know it couldn’t be any fresher. Owners Bill Malatesta and Jane Kenny cut no corners, using long fermentations, centuries-old methods, and even some locally ground grains, to turn out perfectly burnished loaves every time. Grab one of their thick, chewy pizzas for a fast and fabulous summer lunch or dinner. And with no preservatives, you have no choice but to enjoy it within a few days—then go back for more.
