Chez Balzac is a renowned restaurant in Bratislava focused on upscale French gastronomy, but less known is that it includes a bakery. And not just any bakery! We dare to say that here you can get some of the best baguettes in Bratislava. And not just those – there's also a decent selection of sweet pastries, predominantly of the French types. An interesting twist is an unconventional offer, such as bread colored with activated charcoal. Stop by for breakfast, enjoy a baguette on the terrace with French butter and jam, accompanied by a glass of champagne, and you'll experience a little piece of France in Bratislava.
Address: Mateja Korvína 2, Bratislava
Chlieb náš is a rising star in Bratislava´s bakery scene. This craft bakery, originally from Trnava, expanded to Bratislava in 2023. And here too, their sourdough works wonders. In the minimalist interior, you can peek directly over the bakers' shoulders – that is if you can divert your gaze from the large wooden counter showcasing a variety of fresh sweet and savory treats.
Pekáreň na Kolibe
Address: Jeséniova 19, Bratislava
At Pekáreň na Kolibe, machines take a backseat. Instead, skilled hands shape their bread and pastries. In this traditional artisan bakery, the original plan was to focus mainly on cakes and other pastries, but they didn't stop there. Although the bakery is a bit outside of Bratislava, locals are more than willing to make the trip e.g. for their Bratislava rolls. Alternatively, those craving delights from this Bratislava bakery can have them delivered right to their table as they are one of the few bakeries that offer fresh bread delivery to home.
Šiškáreň - pekáreň
Address: Fresh Market, Rožňavská 1A, Bratislava
As a trained baker, Karol spent years gaining experience abroad before returning to Bratislava to offer the locals what they know best: traditional doughnuts (šišky in Slovak), and honest homemade sourdough bread. Everything he sells goes through his hands, from his own sourdough and homemade fillings to the final products. The fact that everything often sells out before closing time is proof that it was a bull's-eye. So if you don't want to leave empty-handed, we recommend stopping by early in the morning.
