Pane Fresco by Marc Bakery Café
414 Locust Street
Pane Fresco is a delightfully unassuming bakery and café in downtown Burlington. They offer a variety of breads and pastries baked with care, as well a selection of competent pizzas, sandwiches and salads.
I felt moved to post about it because if this place were transported to Toronto and given a sleek makeover it could easily charge 50% more and be swamped with business. Not to say that Pane Fresco is a steal, it’s simply priced fairly and that’s both rare and satisfying.
They aren’t trying to blow your mind...no quinoa loaves here. Just familiar and pleasing fare. For example, the chicken ceasar (yawn) but with homemade dressing and a chipotle kick.
Warm service and consistent quality make this place worth a visit!
