Taunton Avenue Bakery In Rhode Island Opens At 5 A.M. Every Day To Sell Their Delicious Portuguese Pastries
Even if you’re a natural morning person, the idea of being up at 5 a.m. probably isn’t all that appealing, much less working at that hour. But by the time the crew at Taunton Avenue Bakery in East Providence opens their doors, they’ve already been baking for hours. But rest assured, their authentic Portuguese breads and pastries are well worth leaving your warm, cozy bed to indulge in.
You'll find Taunton Avenue Bakery on, unsurprisingly, Taunton Avenue in East Providence, where it has been since 2016.
The bakery itself is much older, but unfortunately, they had to close their doors for awhile after a fire at the original location.
Although the bakery keeps true to its Portuguese roots, they also sell Italian French, and American goodies.
And the artisan bread selection is out of this world.
Maggie and Tiago Soares own this charming shop, both of them having moved to Rhode Island as teenagers (from the Azores and Lisbon, Portugal respectively).
They've designed this sweet, heavenly space that opens bright and early every morning for your convenience.
