Andrew Berthrong honed his baking skills at Great Harvest in Logan and Crumb Brothers Artisan Bread before launching Hawk & Sparrow. 

Park City is known for its artisans and makers: folks come from far and wide to exercise their creative and culinary muscles, resulting in some fantastic cottage bakeries and delicious benefits for the community. Whether you’re looking for your weekly loaf or a weekend indulgence, we gathered some of the best spots in and around town for bread and sweet treats.

Red Bicycle

Red Bicycle reigns over the bread section of The Market. Their legendary olive oil “stick bread,” slathered with oil and salt, is too delicious to last longer than a day. Which is why it’s good that it’s available daily from 10:30 a.m., along with a range of other great loaves that regularly sell out—Auntie Em’s baker Emily Burney recommends their power bread—and bake-at-home pizzas. 1500 Snow Creek Dr, 435.645.7139,

Ritual Chocolate Café

In case their chocolate wasn’t enough of a draw, pastry chef Shirley Butler has been supplying pastries for Ritual’s Iron Horse café since last August. Butler is continually experimenting with new flavor combinations, many of which feature Ritual’s own chocolates. Butler also occasionally adds “a little British flair,” like a sticky toffee pudding muffin, in honor of her and Ritual co-owner Anna Davies’s origins. 1105 Iron Horse Dr, 435.657.6920,

At Hawk & Sparrow

Hawk & Sparrow

Andrew Berthrong bakes what might just be the best sourdough around. He started Hawk & Sparrow out of his home in 2017 and keeps up a rotation of flavors like apricot spice and olive lemon herb alongside experiments with different heritage grains and his perfected country loaf. Hawk & Sparrow currently offers delivery to Midway and Heber City and pickup at the Midway Farmers Market (Saturdays from June to October).

Auntie Em’s

Auntie Em’s has been supplying Park City with mouthwatering home-style pies and cookies since 2014, first from farmers markets and now from their new digs inside The Market. The flavors rotate with the seasons, and they source ingredients from local Utah purveyors as much as possible. “We’re pretty happy to be this niche pie shop ... and keep it fresh and fun where we can,” Burney says. 1500 Snow Creek Dr, 815.263.4061,

Tina’s Bakery

The newest addition to the Park City bakery scene presents co-owners Valentina’s and Agostina’s favorite Argentinian family recipes: alfajores, empanadas, savory tarts, pastafrola (a shortcrust pastry filled with quince jam), and the decadent marquise cake, with chocolate mousse and dulce de leche. 6699 N Landmark Dr, N200, 435.731.8156,

Gluten-Free Goods

Luna’s Kitchen provides a wide range of gluten-free treats, including cakes, cinnamon rolls, blondies, cupcakes, cookies, and quiches. 1400 Snow Creek Dr, Ste L, 435.731.8383

Park City Desserts and Coffee touts its organic, gluten-free, vegan, raw, keto, and paleo options. 268 Main St, 435.922.0059

Midway Bakery on Main

There are many delicious reasons to visit this friendly Midway staple, including inventive scones and classic muffins, cookies, and cakes. But what keeps people returning are their massive and gooey buns: cinnamon, orange, berry, and sticky. 206 B W Main St, Midway, 435.557.0518

Windy Ridge Bakery

Part of the Bill White restaurant group, Windy Ridge is a classic full-service bakery with something for everyone—even dog treats for the canine members of the family. Their quiches, croissants, tarts, and cheesecakes provide great savory as well as sweet options. 1750 Iron Horse Dr, 435.647.2906,
