Best Bread
Readers, upstate: Serpe’s Bakery (1411 Kirkwood Hwy., Elsmere, 994-1868)

Critics, downstate: Pasqualini’s Bakery offers a variety of fresh bread, courtesy of owner Kathy Pasqualini. Her customers love the Italian loaves and French baguettes. The spinach, feta and sun-dried tomato is delicious, as is the honey whole wheat bread, which is spiced with clover honey and sprinkled with seeds. (101 Atlantic Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-2111)

Critics, upstate: Let’s settle this now: Black Lab Breads has nothing to do with dogs, everything to do with science. Owner Barry Ciarrocchi is a chemistry buff and spent years in the lab perfecting his baking technique. Now his bakery, in the site of the old DiFonzo Bakery (famous for its tomato pie and sandwich rolls), churns out his crusty Italian loaves, herb focaccia and semolina breads six days a week. Favorites like rye and pumpernickel from the French hearth stone oven are amazing. (812 N. Union St., Wilmington, 658-1307)

Critics, downstate: Frankfurt Bakery took Dover by storm when it opened earlier this year. Or perhaps it was the other way around. Customers went nuts for Andreas Janke’s artisan breads, such as Bavarian rye and white chocolate-laced Alpine Swiss. The breakfast bread, naturally the first thing that sells out every morning, is made with dates, raisins, nutmeg, cinnamon and walnuts. (429 S. New St., Dover, 741-0180)
