water house foods is a bakery and confectionary, based in lake mills, wisconsin.
we specialize in full-bodied, tasty, crusty artisan and specialty breads, handmade from local and organic ingredients, in the european tradition. each loaf is unique, handcrafted with love and care.
for us, using local and organic ingredients is not some sort of gimmick – by using the best ingredients the resulting breads are heartier, healthier, and tastier than conventional breads. breathe in our olive rosemary or our onion herb bread or our garlic sea salt… chew the seeds in our multi-grain… taste the molasses-coffee-cocoa mix in our pumpernickel. experience the difference!
the european tradition is key – bite into the thick, flaky crust of one of our baguettes and you’ll understand why!
bread is one of the oldest and most important foods. you can get bread anywhere, but so much of it is mass-produced and bland. if you’ve ever had a great roll or a great slice of bread at your favorite restaurant, you know how important good bread can be to a meal – or as a meal unto itself. If you haven’t, try one of our breads and become a believer. a good loaf of bread crunches at first bite, crumbles lightly between your teeth, fills your mouth with the nutty sweet flavor of wheat, and satisfies your stomach with a warmth that makes you smile.
that’s what good bread is to us. let us share our breads with you.
