Bread Basket Bakery & Bread Basket Cake Shop

Here’s the Story

The Bread Basket Bakery’s architecture looks like a gingerbread house on the outside, and has the homey feel of a wood-fired cottage on the inside. When it came time for the family owners to move on from this landmark bakery, BFG jumped at the chance to swoop in, promising to maintain its legacy as a Saratoga favorite.

Giving Back

In 2020, the business was purchased by Ed and Lisa Mitzen, and all profits are now donated to Business for Good – and distributed to organizations and charities that fight hunger and food insecurity within our communities.We also increased wages and began providing medical benefits to Bread Basket’s full-time employees, so everyone involved in this venture could benefit from its transformation.

Moving Forward

Bread Basket Bakery continues to curate a cozy and personable environment, accompanied with comforting and warm baked goods, cakes, and lunchtime favorites. Not only do customers get to sit down and enjoy food with a homecooked feel, but they also get to consume thoughtfully, knowing their money will go directly to fight food insecurity in local communities.
