Lodge Bread Bakes Wild-Fermented Bread Starting Today in Culver City

The Westside has a new grain mecca.

Lodge Bread, which comes from San Francisco-trained bakers Alex Phaneuf and Or Amsalem, officially opens with a slew of wild-fermented, house-baked breads today in Culver City along Washington Blvd. Though styled-out as a cafe, the bakery offers a simple menu of toasts, nut butters, and a pitch-perfect coffee program based on De La Paz roasters. The ambitious bread offerings range country and seeded loaves to whole wheat, olive, and rye. Nope, they're not baking a baguette anytime soon. The grains are milled via Central Milling while the breads are baked in a fancy Bassanina oven from Italy.

The rest of the menu features some more bite-sized treats like fruit crumble, coffee cake, dark rye brownies, and cinnamon rolls, if hearty, crusty bread isn't your thing. And they'll serve a muesli bowl for a healthy breakfast. Hours run 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Saturday.
