America's Best Bakeries

Vergennes Laundry, Vergennes, VT

The owners of this bakery in a former laundromat are so devoted to serving simple, fresh food that every sweet and savory tart is made to order. Baker Julianne Jones was inspired after apprenticing with renowned Vermont bread baker Gérard Rubaud; Jones was reportedly one of the only students to last the entire three-month stint. Together with her French husband, a candy maker, they created a light-filled space featuring Baltic birch and a wood-fired oven where Jones bakes Bordeaux-style cannelés—think crème brûlée in mini-Bundt-cake form—and, come winter, perfect tartes flambées.

Must-Try Item: The seasonal berry tart filled with raspberries, strawberries, and husk cherries. vergenneslaundry.com
