Upper Crust Bakery in Silver Spring

Wanted to put in an enthusiastic word for Upper Crust Bakery. I don't know how I've lived her so long without knowing about this place.

We bought four kinds of bread:

Russian Black Bread: dark rye with coffee and onion, topped with poppy seeds. The bread has too soft a texture to be all rye, so there must be some white flour in there too, plus gluten. Really excellent.

Sauerteigbrot: Haven't had this since we left Germany. Dense, chewy crust, and somewhat sour; exactly what it's supposed to be.

Sesame Semolina Bread: Just lovely, beautiful texture, nice crumb, great crust

Pumpkin yeast bread: not sweet, covered with pepitas. Excellent oven spring and texture.

I live about 40 minutes away, using the ICC to get there. It is worth the drive and the toll.

The prices are perfectly reasonable -- even cheap! -- and CHOW-worthy!
