Berkshire Mountain Bakery
A must stop for any visit to Pittsfield! Owner, visionary and master baker, Richard Bourdon, has been featured in Michael Pollan’s Netflix show “Cooked” and Berkshire Mountain Bakery has earned national acclaim as one of the top 10 best bread bakeries in Bon Appetit magazine (2010). Traditional techniques rule the baking process so most bread is naturally leavened with sourdough fermentation and hand-shaped. This Pittsfield location features a large selection of artisanal breads (get there early), amazing croissants, baked goods as well as made-to-order pizzas, breakfast, and lunch specials all day. Frozen pizza shells are hugely popular to easily make your own pies at home. Currently takeout only. Some outdoor seating in season.
