I've used Melrose Bakery in the last two restaurants that I've managed, and the service and quality of goods cannot be matched in Los Angeles. The owner has delivered bread in person when I've run out, and the taste is beyond compare. Pretzel bread, Cibatta, Rosemary bread, Olive bread, all amazing. if you care what your customers are getting, If your chef wants to match bread to protein, look no further than Melrose Bakery. Seriously.
Pros: delicious, delicious. and great, personal service.
Cons: check deliveries, once or twice mistakes
