After two years of renovations, Little Loaf Bakery & Schoolhouse opened the doors to its first brick-and-mortar location in November. 

Owner Julia Castellano retained many of the historic features of the 1930s home at 3410 Wrightsville Ave. while renovating the space, including the original wood floors and windows.

Castellano has sold her fares at local farmers markets since March 2021, and customer favorites including sourdough focaccia and honey biscuits are also sold at the bakery. New offerings include a sourdough marbled rye and two different baguettes, one a traditional French recipe and another Castellano’s riff on the classic, along with other specialty breads. 

As the name implies, Little Loaf will also offer classes, some on breadmaking and baking taught by Castellano (a former teacher) and others by local artisans.
