Visiting Lakeland for the Weekend
See how much fun you’ll have when you visit Lakeland, FL. Tour the world’s largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture (13 structures!) when you visit Florida Southern College. Enjoy locally owned restaurants and bakeries like Red Door Lakeland and Born and Bread Bakehouse.

Recreate this weekend by visiting the businesses featured.

Born & Bread Bakehouse
What started as a booth at the Saturday Lakeland Farmer’s Market has grown into an early morning rite of passage for folks in the Central Florida area. From European style pastries and bread to cheesecakes, biscuits and cruffins – a hybrid between a croissant and a muffin – you’ll quickly see why people stand in line, often around the block, for treats from Born & Bread Bakehouse.

Open only on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Wednesday evening. Online ordering opens Tuesday evening.

COVID-19 Note: At this time, Born & Bread is open for To Go orders through their back patio. If you’re making a last minute decision, no worries! They make extra pastries for walk-ups.

1113A S. Florida Ave. (enter from back patio)
