Blue Fig Crusts is a new concept bakery that just opened in the folds of Blue Fig. Here, you’ll find a variety of breads you would normally struggle to find elsewhere in town.

Their easy-to-follow menu outlines exactly what’s in any of their baked goods, so you can rest easy if you have any dietary restrictions. Can you name any other place that serves gluten-free burger buns?
