Grand Central Bakery first opened its doors 30 years ago on a hunch - that Seattle was hungry for rustic bread. How hungry? Lines stretched out the door, customers double-parked outside waiting for fresh loaves to come out of the ovens, and reporters rhapsodized about the Como bread’s chewy crust and sweet earthy flavor. The Pacific Northwest bread revolution had begun in Pioneer Square.
Now, with its 5th Seattle location newly opened in Wallingford, north Seattle can get a taste of what Grand Central is up to, circa 2019: flaky all-butter croissants and European-style pastries, a menu of seasonal sandwiches made on gorgeous rustic breads, scratch-made salads and soups from local produce, and a mission to use business as a force for good.

As the first B Corp certified bakery in the Northwest, Grand Central Bakery is recognized as a leader in reducing food waste, supporting independent local vendors, offering competitive wages and benefits and rewarding employees’ hard work with growth opportunities.
Named one of 20 Great American Bread Bakeries, and The Seattle Times’ choice for best store-bought pie crust, Grand Central works with Northwest farmers to access the best local and sustainable ingredients. In purchasing flour, they partner with innovators and small mills to strengthen the local grain economy and shorten the time it takes for grain to get from field to bread.
Visit the new Wallingford Grand Central Bakery at 1607 N 45th St, or stop in at other locations in Wedgwood, Eastlake, Pioneer Square, and Burien.
