New Rochelle’s Bread Factory, already on hound radar for its crusty-chewy onion baguettes, among other things, scores again with its scrumptious cranberry-walnut bread. “The best stuff!” exclaims Pat Hammond, who recommends it in either loaves or baguettes, but favors the latter for its cheese-friendly size. “The whole place has sort of an old-time feel to it. It’s such fun going in there…bread piled up everywhere! And you smell the fragrance as you approach.” Also recommended: croissants (plain or almond) and breadsticks, chewy outside and agreeably soft inside.
