Sipping on coffee and munching on freshly baked pastries, various customers sat and relaxed as the soothing music of live musicians echoed throughout Our Daily Bread.
Owners Thierry and Danielle Tellier have made various transformations to the bakery, including the addition of Saturday brunch from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., which features live musical guests.
The Saturday brunches have been happening for about a year-and-a-half, not long after the couple took over the business two years ago.
The couple created the weekly event to create an enjoyable atmosphere where customers feel welcome. Besides entertaining their guests, the Telliers enjoy the music as well.
Originally, the Telliers exclusively hosted jazz musicians, most of which were regulars that played every few weeks.
As time went on, the music and atmosphere evolved to provide new musicians and genres of music, including big band and folk.
This shift allowed new musical groups to gain recognition and offered variety to customers’ ears.
Above all, the purpose of Saturday brunch is to begin the weekend in good fashion.
“Life has to be fun — different,” Danielle Tellier said. “Saturday is the starting of the weekend. It has to be fun and enjoyable.”
The Telliers consider Saturday brunch to be a success.
“For every musician, we have a different crowd,” Danielle Tellier said.
