About Our Boulangerie
Step inside our cozy, rustic boulangerie and you instantly feel a connection with the old-world charms of France. From rows of wicker baskets holding our freshly baked bread to the glass-encased display of hand-crafted pastries, St. Honoré Bakery's ambiance and design have mixed traditions of France with the Northwest vibe. "We create an experience for customers, as well as our workers," says Dominique. "Everything is out in the open so people can talk with me while I roll out bread." The boulangerie uses available natural light with floor to ceiling windows. The flagstone floor and thick wooden tables evoke images of the French countryside, and the smell of freshly baked bread fills every nook of this neighborhood bakery. Choose an intimate table for two or congregate at the long, wooden community table where you may hear whisperings of French from your fellow diners.
From the selection of our quality ingredients to our traditional baking techniques, our menu reflects the French baking tradition in combination with the flavors of the season. In addition to honoring traditional methods, we encourage our production staff to expose their creative talents and develop their own recipes.
Casual and warm, we like to call our customers by their first name. We are passionate and enthusiastic in offering an inviting gourmet experience and providing a memorable time that will uplift a moment of your daily life.

Our clay firebrick bread oven is a return to traditional French baking. The bricks are made from the remarkable kaolin earth of the town of Larnage, located in the foothills of the Rhone Valley and surrounded by the famous vineyards of Tain-l'Hermitage. The quarries in the area have been in use since the time of the Roman Empire. The refractory properties of the clay have a natural moisture retention which transfers the heat evenly, creating bread with great taste, flavor and texture.
Every day, we put our passion to work, loving what we do and sharing it with others. Our work is never done. By empowering each person to bring their unique perspective and skills, everyone has a place to contribute their true creative selves to the organization, offering everyone a sense of belonging. At St Honoré Boulangerie, everyone has a role to serve one another and ultimately our top priority is to serve our customers with quality products. We are serious about delivering passionate service without compromising our values at any time.
