We are a production bakery based in the Holy Rosary neighborhood in downtown Indianapolis. Our purpose is to bring high-quality, old-world bread to the people of our city. Since opening, we’ve become a staple in our neighborhood, and a destination for travelers far and wide. We also provide bread to some of Central Indiana’s finest restaurants and grocers.
Every morning at 4 a.m., our bakers, mixers, and shapers get busy preparing hundreds of fresh sourdough loaves. Our dough is fermented for a longer period of time and at cooler temperatures than commercially yeasted bread, yielding deeper flavor and superior texture. It is then hearth-baked until it reaches perfect caramelization. Then it’s sold fresh off the rack.
At our downtown Indy storefront, you’ll be greeted by friendly smiles, fresh coffee, and a selection of that day’s fresh-baked goods. You’ll also get to browse our pantry offerings, which include fine cheeses, cured meats, handmade pasta, a variety of oils, and other artisanal items handpicked to accompany our house-baked bread.
Bluebeard, a James Beard semifinalist helmed by renowned Chef Abbi Merriss, is adjacent to our storefront. There, you can enjoy Amelia’s bread in some of the most inventive and delicious lunch and dinner dishes in Indianapolis.
