Our Story

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


EST. 1998

Nearly 23 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.

"I simply wanted to do something fulfilling in a place that I truly love! I chose to locate this business in Bismarck-Mandan because it's my hometown. I can’t think of anything more exciting than sharing the best bread in the world with the community I grew up in!"

- Jon

"It gives me great pride to be part of an industry that supports one of North Dakota's greatest assets...our farmers. I was born and raised in rural North Dakota and it's such a joy to share the personal touches of a small town business with this community and those who visit Bismarck."

- Juanita
