If you live in New England, you’ve eaten their bread whether you realize it or not. Meet Pain D’Avignon, the Hyannis-based French bakery that has been churning out everything from braided brioche, crusty baguettes, buttery croissants and enormous bagels to chocolaty brownies, fruity biscotti and oniony focaccia (175 different products, to be exact). In the early morning hours, you can often encounter a wait (and for good reason) at this French bakery located on Cape Cod. After all, it’s here where many New England hotels (like Chatham Bars Inn, Ocean Edge Resort, The Langham Boston and Mohegan Sun) and restaurants like Boston’s Strega come for their bread supply.
