Whether you enjoy making club sandwiches or need freshly baked buns for your perfectly prepared hamburgers, local bakeries have you covered. They offer a range of flavors, from asiago to multi-grain. The bakeries near our apartments in Louisville include:

Blue Dog Bakery & Cafe 

Founded in 1998, the Blue Dog Bakery & Cafe handcrafts more than one thousand artisan bread loaves every week. The loaves take up to 48 hours to produce. This helps create the flavor and crust that gives the bakery its stellar reputation. You can pick up your favorite variety Tuesday through Saturday. Depending on the day, choices may include Italian rosemary, cranberry walnut, and kalamata olive. 


Serving Louisville for over 20 years, Breadworks is a small batch bakery that creates every recipe from the finest, freshest ingredients. It boasts a 4.5-star rating on Yelp. Customers enjoy the friendly service and quaint setting as well as a variety of offerings. Bread choices include country French, sunflower wheat, and raisin-pecan. 

Heitzman Traditional Bakery & Deli 

A community fixture for more than a century, the Heitzman Traditional Bakery & Deli never disappoints. It opened in 1891 after Jacob Heitzman decided to share his delicious creations with others. Today, the bakery is famous for its strawberry whip cream cake and award-winning wedding cakes. You’ll also find hot breakfast sandwiches, salads, and more. The team prepares everything from scratch daily. They use time-honored recipes and every bite bursts with memorable flavor. Be sure and pick up the wheat buns or yeast rolls to enjoy with your homemade dinner. The bakery begins welcoming customers at 6:00 a.m. 

After picking up a loaf of bread from one of these Louisville bakeries, stop by a local farmers market for cheese, produce, and more. Finally, if you would like to call Axis on Lexington home, please contact us. Our leasing team will gladly give you a tour.
