Pairing Larder Baking Company’s top chefs and top-quality ingredients (100% organic, GMO-free, and vegan) with Paul Martin’s top-quality seasonal ingredients is the perfect match.

Our Bistro Burger, starring fresh ground natural Angus beef with black pepper aioli, is even more delectable served on a lightly toasted Larder Baking Company’s classic Pan Di Mie style hamburger bun. The French bun has enough oomph to keep this juicy burger together. We also offer this tasty bun for our vegetarian three-mushroom patty and our sustainable grilled salmon sandwich. Another favorite is the crisp crust and light, airy pockets of Larder Baking Company’s whole wheat ciabatta roll. Enjoy this homemade bread option, prepared for our tantalizing French dip. Our French dip’s ciabatta roll is generously spread with garlic butter, topped with roasted beef, and served with our house-made au jus.

As always, all our food is made from scratch in our kitchen, and comes to you fresh, delicious, and ready to devour! Which dish will you try next? We recommend something with fresh homemade bread from Larder Baking Company. Enjoy!
