Ovenbird is a Willamette Valley artisan bakery and catering company dedicated to utilizing locally-produced products. Founded by three Oregon chefs, Ovenbird Bakery is housed in a historic storefront on Main Street in Independence, Oregon. It is a warm and friendly place to get your morning espresso, visit with friends over a delectable pastry, or pick up your daily fresh bread.
Sandwiches were so good
We arrived in Independence at lunch time and not knowing the local restaurants, we just started walking along the main street. Happened upon Ovenbird Bakery and the smell drew us in. We each ordered a sandwich - mine on sourdough, her's on wheat. Sandwiches are ample with all the fixins, but the bread is the star. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for the baguette we purchased for later that day. It had probably been sitting for several hours and when we cut it that evening, it was very dry and hard.
We stopped in here looking for a place to get a quick lunch and we just made it before closing. We had some very tasty sandwiches, made as we waited. If our hotel around the corner didn't have breakfast included, we definitely would have been here very morning picking up some pastries and coffee.
We were in town on an errand and needed some lunch. We dropped in to check out their offerings. I enjoyed a bowl of soup and coffee cake, both were gluten and dairy free! What a nice surprise for me. My husband had a wonderful sandwich on a baguette. Good food and service. Sure hope we have more excuses to visit Independence and this great bakery.
Hooked on Ovenbird
We just moved to Independence Landing . The first place I noticed while checking out the shops on Main street was the Ovenbird Bakery. I avoided the place as long as I could. Why? Because I love freshly made bread and pastries way too much. Well, I gave in, and made a stop at Ovenbird. Well, I am hooked and will return. ...again and again,.
Perfect for a Picnic
We stopped by for lunch takeaway and it was awesome! Build your own sandwich, fresh baked bread options, soup, salad and quiche. Prices were really modest. There's a park (a block over) with picnic tables, which made social distancing easy. We would definitely stop here again.
