Hello! Welcome to the Mother Loaf Breads, a sourdough bread bakery based in Milan, Michigan. We are baking three times a week currently. Because we do a long, cold, slow-ferment, each batch of bread takes 2-3 days to produce. We also make soups, treats and sometimes specialty items like pasties, so stop by to see what we’re up to!

PLEASE NOTE: The Loaf is going on vacation! The shop will be closed Feb. 18 to Feb. 25. We will return Saturday, March 4. During that time, we will deliver to the Farmer’s Hand on Thursday, Feb. 16 and again on March 1.

What People Are Saying

I can’t get over this wonderful bread and their sweet treats! I am not super daring with food and Stephanie has kindly encouraged me to try things that I normally wouldn’t (and I’ve loved what I’ve tried). The variety of Mother Loaf Breads is amazing and there’s something for everyone 🙂

This store is ALWAYS good. I buy their bread and I am never disappointed. I recently had their Roasted Cauliflower Curry soup and it was amazing, and their pecan bars are to die for.  Definitely a gem in Milan!

We drove from Ypsi to try the sourdough I heard so much about. We were not disappointed. The service was friendly and generous (we sampled many a loaf). We are thrilled the artisan bakery is nearby.
