Even for those who don’t like olives, something magical happens to transform the salty, bitter flavor when they are baked into bread. Don’t believe us? Find a way to get your hands on a loaf baked by Jonathan Robins Bakery to try the best kalamata olive bread in town. It’s packed full of olives, making it so delicious that there’s no need for spreads, butters, cheese, or any other toppings. Other bakeries might use margarine or lard in their kitchen, but Jonathan Robins uses only 100% butter to make its soft and flaky pastries. And the quality doesn’t stop there. Jonathan selects the best eggs, fresh whole milk, live yeast, and European chocolates to ensure that his muffins, cookies, biscotti, pies, and breakfast pastries are a step above the rest. The bakery is a wholesale operation, but you can get the goods straight from the source at the Tempe Farmers Market.
