People tend to always say whats wrong with something and not whats right… That said between your customer service, minimal mistakes, timely orders, and attentiveness, are all things y’all do right. Thank you!!”

Olde Hearth Bread Company is one of the best vendors we have. Excellent product, with an excellent price, and the service is over the top. It is so easy to place an order and receive fresh bread daily! It doesn’t get better than this! We never have any issues, and everything is always so consistent! Thank you for having such wonderful bread and making our guest happy! We appreciate your business dearly!”
- Antoniella Paradiso (Stefano's Trattoria Italian Cuisine)
We have solely used Olde Hearth for all of our bread since the opening of The Ravenous Pig, nearly three years ago. We were impressed with the quality of their product at other restaurants that we worked at over the years, which made our decision to use them simple. We are so happy to have an amazing artisan bakery in Central Florida that is able to maintain high quality and consistency. Shannon, Janice and their team use high quality ingredients, and make everything from scratch, which is exactly how we do things at our restaurant. The ordering and delivery process is simple and efficient, and we are proud to feature Olde Hearth products of our menu.”

As Chef and Owner of Le Coq au Vin Restaurant, President of the 1992 and 1996 U.S. Culinary Olympic Teams and former President of the American Culinary Federation it is indeed my honor and privilege to write a testimonial for the Olde Hearth Bread Company. Having been involved for over 35 years in the food service industry as a Chef, I have been accustomed to nothing but the highest quality products. In this day and age these are extremely difficult to find – but look no further because the Olde Hearth Bread Company, located in Casselberry, Florida, in my opinion, has achieved the ultimate of nothing short of perfection. In the modern world today, they utilize the old world baking standards that include ingredients found across the globe that are professionally fabricated to produce some of the finest breads and baked goods available in the United States. My congratulations to the entire team for the unselfish dedication of their profession. My restaurant has enjoyed Orlando’s #1 French Restaurant for years. The utilization of their products has certainly contributed to my success. Thank you for your continued service of excellence.”
- Dr. Reimund P. Pitz, CEC, CCE, AAC, WCMC (Chef/Owner | Le Coq au Vin Restaurant)

We met Shannon and Janice six years ago. A trusted friend in the local Orlando food business stated, “If you are serious about finding the BEST breads for your restaurant – these guys are the ONLY option!” Boy, was he correct! Shannon Talty and Janice Braham from Olde Hearth pioneered the “artisan” and “local” movement in Orlando. We purchase all of our breads and our unique flatbreads from them – we have from day one and will continue to do so. Olde Hearth bread has become a required supplier of breads and pastries for any food service company in Central Florida that is serious about the quality of the food they service their guests.

Shannon and Janice have succeeded at combining a “family-style” sense of flavor, quality and service with “big company” safety and delivery systems making the sourcing of fresh, artisan breads and pastries seamless and flawless. Their prices are fair and their staff is friendly, extremely competent and accommodating. Last, but certainly not least, Olde Hearth creates some of the best-tasting breads I have ever enjoyed. Toast a light brown a piece of their Potato and Chive Loaf, top with a little butter. It’s Heaven on Earth!!”

Hi there! I just had a piece of your sourdough bread I bought after visiting the East End Market today and I am SO impressed with how amazing it is! I’m from San Francisco and have been searching for the best sourdough bread for years and I finally found it! (It’s even better than the sourdough rounds I order online from Boudin Bakery in SF.) So happy to have found your new home in Orlando and can’t wait to try your other creations. Great work on recreating the best bread in the world (in my opinion of course)!”
