Our Story


Serving Athens, Georgia for 20 years...

Since 1998, Big City Bread Cafe has served house-made breads, pastries and cakes, plus organic and locally-grown produce, meats and cheeses. We also serve fine wine and beer and locally roasted Jittery Joes and 1000 Faces coffee and espresso drinks. Enjoy our beautiful interior dining area and bar as well as our now-famous outdoor courtyard for dining under the shaded elms.

Our breads, pastries, muffins and cakes are made on-site daily and our Breakfast, Lunch, and Saturday & Sunday Brunch items are made to order using the freshest quality ingredients available. We work with local farms, dairies and artisans whenever possible to provide our customers with farm fresh vegetables, meat, eggs, coffee and beer.
