Katic Bread
Fresh Bread Update!
We currently feature two local bakeries, Peoria Bread Company and Katic Bread.

Many of you have already heard that Peoria Bread Company has decided to close. While we are sad to see them go, as a small business, we understand that sometimes you just have to cut your losses.  Please consider what you can do to prevent this from happening to more of the local businesses you have come to know and love!  In the meantime, we do have Peoria Bread left, stop in and stock up!

Katic Bread creates a completely different style of bread.  Currently operating out of Pekara Bakery in Champaign, they make trips three times a week to deliver their artisan breads to our store!  Delivery days are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.  We usually have samples available in case you have not tried it yet!  Click on this link to hear the baker, Dusan Katic talk about what he does best:
