Following the successful opening of its first entirely gluten-free café and bakery in Santa Monica in February 2020, French Provençal bakery Breadblok is expanding to the Eastside of Los Angeles with a brand new restaurant and retail location opening in December.

The opening of Breadblok Silver Lake will be the beginning of the company’s planned rollout across Los Angeles, which will also include new Venice and Beverly Hills locations. The new locations will follow the original’s Cali-meets-South of France aesthetic celebrating the company’s French roots combined with its California setting.

Breadblok features a rotating seasonal menu of bakery and kitchen offerings including gluten-free breads, croissants, tartlets, donuts, scones, quiche, salads, sandwiches, organic jams, vegan milks and more. Additionally, each location will have one exclusive menu item that is unique to that neighborhood. The new location will also serve a selection of gluten-free beers as well as wines from Provence, France.

For three generations, the Charlier family has embraced gluten-free foods, and understanding the difficulty in finding high-quality, delicious gluten-free baked goods in the US today, they set out to solve this dilemma with Breadblok.

“We’re thrilled to introduce additional locations in the Los Angeles area after the tremendous success we’ve had with our first café and bakery in Santa Monica,” says founders Chloé and Celine Charlier. “The Silver Lake community has already been so welcoming. We are excited to further our mission of bringing the most delicious gluten-free baked goods to everyone.”
