Fabio Battaglia trained under his father Angelo to learn the intricacies of making fresh bread every day at Francesca Bakery. From making yeast starters, mixing dough and ingredients, forming and proving the breads, then baking them in a state-of-the-art bread oven each morning.

It’s all part of having “the right feel” for the product as Fabio describes it, with a view to having each loaf come out of the oven looking amazing!

Just some of the varieties of bread you'll find here every day.

Starting a 5:00am every morning, our bread bakers get started with the daily production. Utilizing state-of-the-art baker ovens, it’s a continuous process with starters and bigas then mixing, rising, proofing, shaping and cutting into a variety of artisanal breads that you can choose from every day.

Stop on your way home and pick up your favorite loaf of fresh bread– and oh yes – call ahead to reserve it! Call – 416-299-1174
