Loleta Bakery

News: Sorry to say the news is that the Loleta Bakery is closed — I will really miss this place!  I hope all the best for Peter and Jeanne, don’t know why they closed but it certainly wasn’t for lack of great food. 

The Loleta Bakery is located on Main St. in the little village of Loleta and is owned by Peter and Jeanne Van Der Zee.  An interview will be posted at a later date.  The pastries, breads and lunches are fantastic, a must see when in the Eel River area.  Everyone in the bakery is warm and welcoming — I recommend a trip to the Humboldt Bay Wildlife Refuge and stopping at Loleta Bakery for a chocolate croissant…or parmesan pesto croissant — I’ve also stopped for lunch before going to the Ferndale Rep for a play — A few photos to tease you until you have a chance to stop by for warm buttery pastries!  To listen to the interview click here.
