Best Bread in Santa Cruz!

Best Bread in Santa Cruz!
“We feed, knead, and bake so you don’t have to.”


Companion Bakeshop opened in 2008 from a love of hearty sourdough and grew from a popular market stand to two storefronts – while still maintaining stands at 6 area farmer’s markets.

Companion is part bakery, part neighborhood cafe, where the line tends to stretch out the door. In addition to delicious slow-ferment sourdough loaves, you can get delicious sweet and savory treats, quiche and baguette sandwiches for a quick lunch, and barista beverages featuring Cat + Cloud coffee. Want to bake at home without the mess? You can also pick up cookie dough, pie dough and you-bake cinnamon buns to make your home smell like heaven.
