Where To Find Bread, Tucson-Arizona

Finding good bread can be a struggle, especially in Tucson. I wanted to write about a place that has fresh baked, blows your mind, authentic bread. This place is La Baguette Parisienne. It is located way on the east side of Tucson. They have all sorts of European breads, fresh baked pastries, and sometimes, if you're lucky, homemade french bread pretzels. My favorite is the Ciabatta, and my boyfriend's is the country french. Really you can't go wrong, and the women who run the place have the temperament of your grandmother. Its kind of a haul for me to get all the way out there but worth the trip. Its also very inexpensive, which is a plus for the poor college student. :)

The address is:7851 East Broadway Boulevard, Tucson AZ

P.S. Make sure to get there early, they sell out of stuff pretty quickly!

Thanks for the tip! I will have to stop in there when I get myself down to Tucson.

I agree with murphalert about La Baguette Parisienne. It is the best that Tucson has to offer.

Be aware, they do not accept debit or credit cards. Cash and check only!

Living in Phoenix, but still new"ish" to the Valley.  We ride Motorcycles alot in Tucson.  Will have to bring my bags to bring bread home.  I wonder if there are any decent places around Phoenix?  Somewhere that you can get something not a day old!  I'm not interested in farmers markets where breads were made the day before.. the place in Tucson sounds fantastic.  Will be sure to check them out.
