If you love bread, then September is your month! Sourdough September is the perfect opportunity to slice into a loaf, spread it with butter, and dig in. Making your own sourdough is fun, but there are also plenty of great Long Island bakeries that sell this style of bread. Here are a few that our REALTORS® recommend visiting.
- Marie Blachere: 550 Middle Neck Rd., Great Neck, NY 11023
If you're looking at homes for sale in Manhasset, this French bakery is a short drive away. While pastries are their main focus, they also make traditional breads, including an artisan sourdough that sells for $5.50 a loaf.
Marie Blachere has a cozy dining room, so consider enjoying a meal on-site. They have a whole menu of sandwiches, some of which can be enjoyed on a sourdough roll. Their raspberry mint lemonade is also a fan favorite.
- Roast Sandwich House: 100 Main St., Mineola, NY 11501
Roast Sandwich House is a great place to visit if you prefer your sourdough in sandwich form. It's near homes for sale in Garden City, too.
The BBQ turkey grilled cheese is popular. It's made on fresh sourdough and stuffed with NY cheddar, pickled jalapenos, crispy onions, and southwest ranch. Consider pairing your sandwich with a side of the tomato bisque soup or loaded potato soup.
- Flour Shoppe Cafe: 486 Sunrise Hwy., Rockville Centre, NY 11570
With a name like Flour Shoppe Cafe, they have to serve great sourdough! If you visit for breakfast, the Croque Madame sandwich is a good choice. It's made with incredible ham and aged cheddar. For lunch, try the Dewey, a sandwich consisting of turkey, avocado, maple pepper bacon, cheddar, Sriracha, and tomatoes on sourdough.
This cafe is near plenty of homes for sale in Rockville Centre, and they have a nice, outdoor patio where guests can dine.
- Duck Island Bread Company: 201-C East Main St., Huntington, NY 11743
Duck Island Bread Company was founded by a baker who studied in France and Germany. They make their bread in small batches, so every loaf is special. Most of the breads here are naturally leavened, which means they're classified as sourdough.
Bring home a baguette, some sandwich rolls, and maybe even some pastries. This bakery is conveniently located near homes for sale in Huntington.
- Blondie's Bake Shop: 90 A Washington St. Ste. A, Centerport, NY 11721
Blondie's Bake Shop is just a short drive from homes for sale in Northport. This classic bakery relies on traditional recipes and techniques to make some incredible creations. The sourdough boule is a popular choice. It's wonderful spread with butter or made into a sandwich.
While you're visiting to celebrate Sourdough September, consider also trying the black pepper Romano biscuits or the apple pie sticky buns. The scones are also incredible.
- Park Bake Shop: 112 Main St., Kings Park, NY 11754
Park Bake Shop is just north of many homes for sale in Commack. It's a small and inviting shop that makes a bit of everything, from bread to donuts. Their sourdough is crusty and tender — perfect for sandwiches.
