Ooooh! We know dreamy things come in small packages and that’s certainly the case with Fayetteville’s newest bakery. Dirty Apron Bakehouse opened in April, and I finally got around to visiting a few days ago. This tiny spot is located off Dickson behind Nightbird Books.
Dirty Apron bakes small batch naturally leavened sourdough using a French, mid-nineteenth century fermentation process. This process is said to result in more digestible and flavorful bread. In addition to freshly baked loaves, the bakehouse also offers a daily menu that includes pastries, breakfast sandwiches, salads, coffee, beer, and hot tea.
Check out this piled high breakfast sammy! What a marvel. We took a loaf of olive and walnut bread home, and we’ve been eating on it all week. Delish! Order online and the bakehouse will “pedal” it to you. (I assume within a reasonable location and not to Dallas.)
First impressions are important and mine was definitely favorable. In addition to the food, the patio is charming, pet friendly (yay!), and includes both sunny and shady spots for dining. The vintage mixer displayed by the front door is nearly as big as the inside space. It pays homage to the Ozark Mountain Family Bakery once located across the street.
Dirty Apron is open Tuesday – Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. For Sunday hours, ask on Saturday.
