Eugene City Bakery offers meals, pastries and coffee near Hayward Field
Step past Prince Puckler’s Ice Cream on East 19 Avenue and Agate Street and into Eugene City Bakery, which is next door. Shelves of freshly baked bread, rows of pastries and piles of cookies are accompanied by the soft sound of Bob Dylan playing “Mr. Tambourine Man.”
“I think it’s really lovely during the morning to sit out on the patio.” Whitney Price said,@@https://www.facebook.com/whitney.price.33 think this is [email protected]@ a barista working at the bakery.
“We strive to be as organic and local as possible,” she said, touching on a popular selling point for many Eugene businesses. “We have different people who focus on different food here, so the dessert guy makes desserts, and the bread maker makes bread.”
The bakery also has a breakfast menu, seasonal specials and a Bread of the Day.
On the menu, there are dozens of fresh meals including pizza, quiche, pie, sandwiches, croissants and even dog treats.
Along with classics like lemon meringue pie, the bakery also serves Heritage turtle bars, carrot cake cookies and the very popular Date Oat Walnut bars. There are options for meat eaters, vegans and everyone in between.
The bakery is similar to Espresso Roma near The Duck Store, with a much wider selection of food and baked goods but less to offer in terms of coffee.
For a good meal or sweet desert, Eugene City Bakery is close to Hayward Field and an excellent example of local quality food in Eugene. Stop by anytime — the bakery is open everyday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
