We use traditional processes to create delicious breads, rolls and cookies for restaurants, food service distributors and an increasing number of retail outlets. We bake a variety of breads, cookies and customer-specific products, as well as our famous sourdough made with starter that’s over 120 years old.
“The Old Spaghetti Factory has been doing business with Coeur d’ Alene Baking for a number of years and we are proud to be a customer because of the fair business practices you use and the line of communication you always keep open! The product speaks for itself. The sourdough loaf is one of our main items that have been a family tradition of breaking bread in The Old Spaghetti Factory for 45 years!”

So, why is it called Coeur d'Alene Bakery, anyway?
A father and son from California opened the bakery with a sourdough starter over 100 years old. They intended to open in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho (hence the name) but they chose Spokane, Washington, when research showed it to be their main customer base. After building business relationships and supplying fresh bread products to local restaurants and grocery stores, they decided to expand operations and opened new bakeries in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1995 and Kent, Washington in 1997. The other facilities were eventually sold off and now Kent is the sole location of Coeur d’ Alene Bakery. Now you know!
