Bon Breads opens at Town Square

It’s an open secret Carlos Pereira of Bon Breads makes the best breads in the city, but until recently, you had to depend on the good taste of chefs, or an occasional trip to a Farmer’s Market to procure one.

Now, that’s changed. Because of the success of Bon Breads at local Farmer’s Markets, and in part because of the impermanence of them, his wife, Kathia, convinced her husband to open a retail outlet. And Town Square was prescient enough to give them a tiny space at a nice price to do so.

The old saw “bigger than a bread box” doesn’t seem like a cliché here.  The space, marked by a display bicycle loaded with breads outside the front doors, is all of 268 sq. ft., smaller than a kid’s bedroom.
