Is there a REAL good old fashioned bakery in the Baltimore area?

I'm talking about the kind that used to be in every neighborhood: where you could buy bread, rolls, cakes, Danish, coffee cakes....everything! It seems like we have a plethora now of "specialty" bakeries, e.g. cupcakes, OR bread (only). But I'm talking about an old-fashioned full-service bakery. Does this even exist anymore?? I just came back from a trip to Barcelona, where there is practically a bakery on every block selling freshly baked croissants, baguettes, loaves, pastries. I remember as a kid that these bakeries existed here in the U.S. too, but I can't find ANY now. I can't imagine that a full-service, all purpose bakery wouldn't do well in almost any neighborhood! There's even a bakery in Barcelona where they specialize in whole grain gluten free breads and cookies: the most delicious spelt and kamut breads and cookies. They are WAY ahead of us over there! Or am I just missing something? If you know of any bakeries of the kind I'm looking for, please let me know!
