Erick Schat’s Bakkery

If you are ever in the Eastern Sierra, make a point of stopping at Erick Schat’s Bakkery in Bishop, California. It has the largest variety of bread I have ever seen.

The south half of the shop is devoted to rows of bread shelves. Walking between them is like getting lost in a library, only with loafs instead of books. There are common choices like sourdough and raisin bread. There are also less expected treats like churros and bacon chili cheese bread.

The north half of the shop is a confectionery. As with the bread section, this side has a great many choices. The brightly colored cookies and gelato caught my eye, but there were a great many other things, too.

There’s also a sandwich shop at the back of the bread section, plus some shelves for day-old bread.

chili cheese bread
This loaf of “chili cheeze bread” was a little like a pie, with the cheese and peppers in the center. We had this for dinner while camping beside June Lake. There was plenty left over for the next day.
