Welcome to the Bread is Beautiful bakery. We offer a wide range of specially selected fresh handcrafted, natural and delicious breads, made by some of the best bakers in Europe. Many of our breads are award winning or are classified as cultural heritage. We also offer complementary baked goods such as flour-free cookies.
Our breads are:
- Without additives. Without E-substances. Without preservatives.
- Made with superior quality flours. No industrial mixes
- Most are made with naturally leavened sourdough
- Fragrant & delicious. Many are specially baked using wooden fire techniques
- Some of them are baked following ancestral traditions going back to the 12th century!
- They stay fresh for several days
By weight our prices are competitive with standard breads sold by the main commercial retailers of bread in Belgium. However all our breads are unique premium quality products. Our breads stay fresh for several days, so you don’t have to buy a new loaf every day — another way you save money.
We are able to offer these competitive prices because we are selling without the fixed overhead of a retail locale — no ‘bricks and mortar’.
