Readers' Choice 2012: Where is the Best Bakery in St. Louis?

Soft, warm bread is the most essential food of humanity. Help Patch find the best bread-makers in the St. Louis metropolitan area.

There is nothing like a piece of fresh, warm bread in the morning and St. Louis does not lack places to get quality bread.

From Sunset Hills-based (or Panera Bread, for you outsiders), to Webster Groves’ , just to name a few, St. Louisans turn to local bakeries when they want more than just plain, white wonder bread.

We need our readers’ help to find the best bakery in the St. Louis metropolitan area. Is there a place that makes croissants like no other? or perhaps scones or cupcakes? Nominate your absolute favorite bakery for our 2012 Readers’ Choice awards.

All you have to do is comment on this story to nominate a bakery. Don't forget to tell us why you picked the place!

Nominations can be made from today until July 9. Voting will begin thereafter. Make sure to tell all your friends and family to participate.

4 Seasons Bakery located in St. Charles. You can find them at the Mapelwood Farmer's market too. It's owned by such a sweet couple with amazing treats.

I remember when the original St Louis Bread Company opened @ Woodlawn & Manchester. It was so good I'd take bread and muffins to Chicago when I'd visit my family.
