Bob's Well Bread is Still Open

Bob's Well Bread is still making bread. It’s what we do. While we have made the difficult decision that the most responsible thing to do for the health and well-being of our staff and guests is to close our dining room, we continue to have people baking, cooking and working the counter so you can get bread, pastry, coffee drinks and food – all prepared to go.

Our dining room is closed for the time being, and all orders are takeaway. Just implemented is our new “comfort food” package that we hope will make your home life easier. Available for pick up is a variety of “Soups to Go” in quart containers, paired with a bag of organic salad greens, dressing and a baguette for $30.00. It’s a nice easy dinner for these trying times. The soups will vary, so call us and ask what varieties we have on hand.

At the core of our business, we are bakers. That is all I set out to do when I originally set up Bob's Well Bread. We have grown in our 6 years to way beyond “just bread.” We are committed and enormously proud to continue providing the “Staff of Life” to all who need it. We will also continue our support to our senior centers and those in need, so if that applies to you, please let us know.

In an effort to minimize customers queuing up in our small space, we encourage you to call us at 805-344-3000 to order and pre-pay. That way we can have your order ready when you arrive. You can also let us know if you would prefer curbside service and we will bring your order out to you. Just phone when you arrive.

Our hours during this unusual time, and for as long as we are able to stay open, will be 7 am until 3 pm. Our entire menu will be available to go, but that may vary, so please be patient with us as we adapt.

Be assured that all of your familiar faces will be there to serve you…with the exception of me. Exercising an abundance of caution, and having had pneumonia just 3 months ago, I find myself in a group that I’d prefer not to be in, but one that has been recommended to “shelter in place.” I hope you will continue to support us in any way you can because it takes a village to turn out the bread, pastry, food and drinks we provide for you every day. We want to keep every last one of our team employed during this crisis time and will do all that we can to maintain that.

Be strong. Be well. See you on the other side.

Food & Wine April 2020

            I find a great meal at Bob’s Well Bread Bakery. The restaurant, in a convertedgas station, offers breakfast items like an “Egg-in-a-Jar,” which combines purple potato puree, Gruyère cheese, and a poached egg, alongside flaky, flavorful pastries. Their slow-fermented breads are also on the...

Los Alamos Road Trip: The Future of Food in an Old Western Town - LA Weekly

Those standing in the queue eye the display of one-of-a-kind mustard, honey, olive oil and bread knives as they wait for their chance to scoop up a loaf of sesame sourdough (sells out quickly) or olive fougasse (Saturdays only) and perhaps order (for breakfast) the egg-in-a-jar (purple potato puree, Gruyère,...
