Where we've featured it
If you live in Long Beach, you’ve probably heard of Gusto Bread, the bakery that runs out of a cottage in Retro Row. It’s time you try it. This excellent bakery serves tremendous loaves, flatbreads, biscuits, baguettes, cornbreads, and is also selling sourdough starter. Currently doing $5 delivery in Long Beach, or contactless pick-up. Order ahead for Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday pick-up via their website.
One of our favorite bakeries in Long Beach celebrated Mother’s Day with this beautiful drawing by Dave Van Pattern. Does this count as something “new and exciting you can eat/do this week?” Technically no. But it did make us smile.
Down in Long Beach, Gusto Bread is an organic panadería specializing in pan and pan dulce made with 100% natural yeasts. You’ll find beautiful seeded loaves, studded with sunflower, pumpkin, and poppy seeds that go perfect with a cup of coffee, or just a quick smear of butter. Semi-sweet pan loaves are made with a house-milled yellow corn, and conchas come with a thick sugar cookie frosting and can be eaten throughout the day. They also carry a rotating list of weekend-only specials, like jalapeño cheddar biscuits and strawberry jujube tamales, so make sure to check those out as well.
