Five Loaves Bakery & Cafe in Francesville, Indiana

Finding a sensational bakery and cafe, Five Loaves Bakery, in Francesville, Indiana is just part of the reason that I love exploring small towns.

The other reason? Trying a little of this and a little of that–all in the name of research!

We sat down for a bit at a gorgeous Walnut set to enjoy the homey and inviting atmosphere of this Indiana town bakery. Country touches are here and there. It looked so cute and felt so inviting!

I love, love, love the furniture! Five Loaves Bakery and Cafe had a variety of tables in different types of wood in all different styles. It’s just a lovely Indiana bakery.

Locals were in and out, full of town news and other important matters. They’ve also got an absolutely fabulous display case with beautiful wood molding and trim that once was one of many such cases in the Gutwein shop across the street. That’s where our attention was drawn.

Now, let me tell you about the beautiful things on the inside of this case, like assorted fresh muffins, frosted sugar cookies, and homemade chocolates!

This is the first bakery I have seen yet that boasts homemade chocolates so after our initial order-we each bought one for the road! Chocolate vanilla cream for me and a dark chocolate coconut one for hubs.

I’m getting ahead of myself. While still inside the bakery, we had to do a little “research.” I ordered a Peach Banana Smoothie and my husband, Jeremy, went with the Strawberry–which is the most popular smoothie flavor according to the owner of Five Loaves Bakery.

The kid requested the large frosted flower sugar cookie and mowed down before I remembered I had to take a photo! Oops. He did let me try a bite and it was melt-in-your-mouth amazing! I begged the kid for another–thank goodness he likes to share!
