Best Local Bakery


Readers' Picks

Zeppole's first loaf of bread was born in the oven of Gary Ebert, a local attorney sick of the courtroom. Ebert traveled Europe, gathering Old World recipes, and returned to launch a bakery full of rustic bread. He named his shop "Zeppole" after a fried bread he discovered in Italy, but ironically, it's a bread never seen on the menu. Eventually, the bakery changed hands to the Alper family, who runs the bakery today--still as popular for lunch with Boise High students as it is with Boise's upper crust, which likes to present loaves of challah and pane rustica at dinner parties.
