The corner of Griffith Park Boulevard and Edgecliff in Silver Lake is about to get busier. Breadblok, Santa Monica’s gluten-free bakery and cafe, will take up residence steps away from Pine & Crane and Coffee Memes this December, while opening two additional locations in Venice and Beverly Hills in the coming months.

Breadblok opened in February 2020, and managed to navigate success amid the pandemic. Sister-owners Chloé and Celine Charlier launched the Westside business thanks to their French family’s three generation embrace of gluten-free baking. Breadblok’s mostly organic breads and pastries are free of gums, soy, and refined sugar with items like breads, croissants, tarts, donuts, scones, quiche, and sandwiches.

When open, Breadblok Silver Lake will keep hours from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. in the former Enrique Auto Parts space at 1529 Griffith Park Boulevard.
