Location Description:

Zak the Baker's Wynwood Bakery & Café 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. Loaves are $6 each, and the day's offerings included a Jewish rye, a plum fennel and rye, and a country wheat. The day's food offerings 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.
