knowledge, locale, and process

Laune Bread is a bakery dedicated to simplifying life, bringing small town vibes to Minneapolis, and seasonality. A commitment to reducing waste and sourcing ingredients from Minnesota farmers and producers, our offerings include European inspired naturally leavened breads, sweet and savory pastries, and various salads and sandwiches.

We honor the skills from time past to create naturally leavened, slow bread with a large amount of whole grains to develop flavor, digestibility & nutrition. 

We make all naturally leavened, hand crafted, hearty bread. We use a sourdough culture that thrives with local bacteria and yeast found in the grains, water, air, and ten fingers. Using local grains enhances the terroir of the bread, matching the bacteria found on the grain, rather than importing it from a different region. We are patient with our dough, giving it a long fermentation to develop a depth of flavor and to break down the gluten proteins, making it more digestible and nutritious. Our breads include a substantial portion of whole grain flour and a high percentage of water to make a bread that is full of flavor, moist, and has a long shelf life. 


as the countryside lived off its harvests and cities off the surplus, it was sensible for a town to obtain its provisions from within striking distance – ‘from its own possessions.’
