Founded in February of 2020 by sisters Chloé and Celine Charlier, the Santa Monica bakery is just approaching its one-year anniversary. And since opening their doors they’ve quickly become a staple for those looking to avoid wheat flour. Best of all, they serve without sacrificing the experience of consuming delicious food. Chloe and Celine are third-generation purveyors of a gluten-free lifestyle. A tradition that was second nature back on the family’s farm in Provence, France. With plenty of delicious options here in LA, they were inspired to make their own bread and pastries.
What’s striking about the baked goods at Breadblok is their commitment to the mainstays everyone knows and loves. They recreate the foods that are most beloved for their gluten. Treats like loaves of bread, donuts, croissants and other obviously flour-based pastries like scones and cakes. Instead of trying to reinvent the wheel or manufacture other, newer baked goods, the Charlier sisters went all in on making classic baked goods better. And for the most part they did so with flying colors.
Crafted by LA-based agency Commune Design, the cozy enclave is beautifully decorated with soft browns and light wood. Accented with delicate hanging baskets and lots of open shelving that showcases the most important decoration of all — their breads. There is nothing more aesthetically pleasing than rows and rows of perfectly golden loaves. And the space sets these massive shelves up to steal the spotlight. Of course, the immediate onset of a pandemic that prohibits gathering indoors means the space has been unavailable to the public for a little while, but with a recent order to re-open recents in California, the cafe now offers outdoor seating and allows customers inside the shop to place their orders.
