Biga Breads

Carmelized onion and cheese ciabatta (a twisted Tuscan bread), triple-raisin loaf, and parmesan-pepper breadsticks are just a few reasons to check out Biga. In addition to retail sales through their cafes, you can find them at Bread & Circus—and on the tables of some of the best restaurants in the city. The cafes now serve roasted tomato and fontina pizzas, salads, and sandwiches like the smoked turkey with caramelized-onion chutney, goat cheese, basil, and Dijon that will make your mouth water!
