The Blue Heron Bakery has been selling its wonderful edibles at Olympia Food Co-op since 1977 when a group of friends working together at a downtown cafe decided to start a bakery. For most of their 41 years, the bakery was housed on Mud Bay Road. Three years ago, the business made a move to a new location, closer to town. They expanded their menu and services to include a breakfast, lunch and dinner menu, serving hungry customers from 7 AM to 7 PM, seven days a week. Enjoy indoor or outdoor seating, and a menu with a delicious array of goodies, from soups, salads, and sandwiches to pizza (both traditional and gluten free), polenta, lasagna, their wonderful breads, and both sweet and savory pastries. Check out their entire menu.

Always concerned with producing healthy products, they have never allowed any artificial preservatives, colors, or flavors into what they make, and have created pastries and dishes that honor those needing gluten-free and vegan fare. “Natural before it was fashionable” is more than just the slogan for the bakery: it’s a 40-year tradition.
