About Us

The Back Alley Bakery creates natural, unprocessed “artisan breads” baked fresh every day. We use the most wholesome ingredients possible, most of which are certified organic. Each week our crew starts the bread-making process by grinding much of our own grain obtained from local, organic growers. All of our breads are sourdough, taking several days between the initial mixing of the “sponge” to the artful glide into the brick oven using our homemade peel.

It's clear the Back Alley Bakery is not just a bakery. We started as a single room and a hand-made brick oven, but have expanded to offer breakfast, lunch, desserts and other items. The Back Alley Bakery is an active member of the Nebraska Food Cooperative. We also support many other local Nebraskans by selling locally made grains, roasted coffee, Garcia Farms jellies and salsas, Sweet Minou chocolates and Pacha Soap.
