Blue Baker is an anomaly in the Best of the Brazos Valley competition. Not only have they won a “Best of” title every year since 2004, but they’ve won in FOUR separate categories for several years in a row! (Best Bakery, Best Cookie, Best Food Deliver/Take-Out, and Best Sandwich Shop) They are a household name for great food in the Brazos Valley with three locations to choose from here, but with a culture and food so delicious, it’s hard not to share! So they opened another location in Austin, Texas to spread their Blue Baker-goodness further across our great state.
Blue Baker is (if you didn’t already know) a family-owned craft bakery and pizzeria that began its story over seventeen years ago when Dave Fox followed his fiancé to College Station. They found an abandoned restaurant on Dominik Drive, and Fox decided to pursue his dream and launched a company that would forever change the BCS community. Blue Baker not only serves up delicious food, but they play an active role in each community that they serve. They offer weekly bakery tours, monthly cookie sales and sales sharing nights with local organizations, and partner with charitable organizations in whatever capacity they can.
“We’ve learned over the years that the greatest contribution we can make to the community is how we treat every individual person entering our bakeries every minute, of every day. We can either uplift people, make them feel worse, or have no effect at all,” Fox said. “We believe there’s a responsibility that comes with being a service business. How guests leave our store has an effect on how they engage with the next person they meet during their day. We can have a positive impact on our greater community if we make efforts to uplift our guests as they visit us.”
With food as warm and full of love as Blue Baker’s heart, stop by one of their stores and try a delightful artisan pizza, tasty sandwich, a perfectly mixed salad, or creamy soup in one of their specialty dough bread bowls! Don’t forget – they have award-winning cookies, and other unbelievably tempting treats. To see their full menu and exclusive daily specials, click here.
