Our story begins with a passion for bread and the relationships we have built with New York City’s finest bakeries delivering their breads to the most discerning chefs and best grocers for over 30 years.
With the uncertainty of current times, we felt compelled to help these incredible artisans find new ways to stay in business and bring their delicious products to you.
In less than a week, Bread Basket was born. And we’re ready to deliver your cravings for breakfast toast, healthy sandwiches, weekend bagels, afternoon sweet treats and decadent desserts.
We exist to support our local artisan bakeries and our community by sharing the love for NY breads with the world!
Unfortunately many of our friends and partners in the bakery industry are at risk of closing due to their dependence on NYC's devastated restaurant industry. We believe bakeries are at the center of their communities and we believe they are important.
We (and you!) will continue to support them and, together, we will get through this.
All the breads and pastries in our bread baskets are made in the five boroughs of New York City by our talented local bakeries.
We do! We started our business as a wholesale supplier, for any wholesale inquiries, please feel free to get in touch with us and we can discuss further.
Yes. You can do this easily within your customer account with Bread Basket here.
If you live in an apartment, we will attempt to deliver your bread basket with a doorman or by buzzing your apartment directly. We will even try and buzz your neighbors in order to leave the box inside. However, if we can’t reach anyone we will leave your box on your building doorstep.
If you live in a house, we will leave your Bread Basket on your doorstep.
Right now, we only ship to the lower 48 States of the U.S. But we are in the works of expanding our destinations - thanks for your patience!
Our shipping charges are based on the delivery method, size, weight, as well as the delivery destination.
We have a shipping rates calculator that's available when you add items to your cart, so you can estimate the cost before the checkout process!
If you place your first order before midnight on a Monday, you will receive your first basket on the Friday of the same week, otherwise the order would arrive the following Friday.
After your first order, you will receive your subsequent baskets on future Fridays in accordance with the subscription frequency selected.
HOLIDAY SHIPPING NOTICE: We appreciate your patience as our service carrier Fedex is experiencing some service delays due to high volume at this time. Please let us know if your basket arrives late. All baskets shipped between 1-2 days.
All of our bakeries adhere to high safety standards, operating under Department of Agriculture guidelines and using Good Manufacturing Practices, recently enhanced with special procedures and policies specific to the outbreak of COVID-19. All products are packaged for health and safety.
