Yellow Dog Bread Company
A little over a year ago, a new bakery opened in Raleigh NC called Yellow Dog Bread Company. I hadn’t been lucky enough to visit until just this past weekend and I’m so glad I finally had the opportunity. Part of the reason why I’ve missed them for so long is that they aren’t opened on Sundays. Yep, hours are 7am-7pm Monday – Saturday. That’s fine, except when your long run is Sunday, and that’s the day you allow yourself the extra carbs in a pastry.
They don’t have a traditional website, but you can follow the links above to their Instagram and Facebook pages.
Yellow dog is located at 219 E. Franklin St. in Raleigh, NC. It’s close to an array of wonderful places that I just can’t wait to try out including the Station and Person St. Pharmacy. It’s a great area with tree covered streets, beautiful old houses filled with character and ample parking.
I went on a beautiful Saturday morning, and yes there was a line but it moved very quickly.
And while you wait, you can check out the array of pastry treats including scones, cinnamon buns, cookies, hand pies and bread.
The croissants were so beautiful! They offer chocolate, almond and butter. I ordered on chocolate and one almond so that I could get a good sample of what they offer.
What a great selection of breads!
They also serve coffee – including drip and espresso based drinks. The coffee roaster isn’t local, but none the less, it was delicious. It’s from a company called Lamplight based out of Richmond, VA.
I enjoyed the ambiance of this little bakery. There was plenty of room for the line up front (which is important to me, if I feel too cramped, I’ll just step right out of line), about 8 tables (both 2 and 4 top) inside and a line of tables outside as well. I will definitely be back to sample more of their bread and to try their espresso drinks. With free wi-fi and outside seating, I have no reason not to!
