Our Story

A unique retail bakery specializing in fresh, stone-ground whole wheat bread products.


EST. 1998

Nearly 25 years ago, Bread Poets was a relatively new and exciting concept to the Bismarck-Mandan area. Today we are as much a staple in the community as bread is to your dinner table.


Baking Tradition

We grind our own wheat daily in our own Stone Burr Mill and hand-knead our bread. Each loaf is finished by hand, the old-fashioned way, for a bread experience that is truly out of this world!


An affordable luxury

We are committed to making a premium product and selling it at a fair price. Bread Poets is an experience everyone should enjoy and we believe the best part of the experience is “taste”!

Everything we do is done the right way.

So at the end of the day we can say

“We are the best". Period.

Meet the Owners


"Growing up in Bismarck, Bread Poets products were always sitting on our counter. So, when we were purchasing Bread Poets, we were not just purchasing a bakery but a business my family grew up on and enjoyed daily. Now as the bakery is part of my family, I hope to continue to provide the next generation of families with Bread Poets products on their counters. "

- Jess

"When we were looking to purchase Bread Poets, I really wanted to own and be part of a business that I could believe in, that had products and customer service I could be proud of and a business that was local & connected to the community. Bread Poets has been all of those things and more for over 2 decades. I couldn't be more excited to continue the Bread Poets legacy! "
