  • Sunday through Friday 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Closed Saturday.
Zak the Baker is a perfect addition to Wynwood. Once an industrial part of the city, this bakery with a seating area is one part café, three parts commercial kitchen. In the front, happy diners chat and eat open-faced sandwiches and soups at rustic tables set up with fresh flowers. In the back is a busy bakery, where Zak Stern and his team mix dough and form loaves to sell. It's a labor of love, and it shows in the baked goods, which are displayed on the counter. The day's offerings include the likes of Jewish rye, plum fennel and rye, country wheat, and sourdough. Daily food items are listed on a chalkboard. There's a soup of the day, several sandwiches — served open-faced and listed as "toasts" — a salad, and some other bites. Everything is based on what's freshly available. What you won't find is meat — Zak the Baker is strictly kosher, so the menu comprises dairy, vegetable, fish, and egg dishes.
