Traditional & Vegan All-Natural
Mardi Gras Treats at Breads on Oak

Breads on Oak, 8640 Oak St., 324-8271, BreadsOnOak.com

Breads on Oak, the bakery on Oak Street in Uptown which uses traditional French baking techniques, will be offering their all-natural King Cakes and Galette des Rois this coming Mardi Gras. Last year chef Sean O’Mahony introduced his first King Cake using all-natural flavorings and colorings. This year, O’Mahony will make a vegan galette as well as a vegan King Cake. With lines often snaking around the corner to get in, it’s hard to believe Breads on Oak only opened in 2012. Clearly, their make-from-scratch approach using organic flour and local ingredients has hit a sweet spot in the market.
