Takhaet's Bakery

Come exchange your items for my freshly baked bread loaves! Smell the life-sustaining scent. No meal is complete without bread! I have over 40 kinds of breads and cakes.  My bread won't wear down your teeth, either. No stone particles here. I don't add sand to hasten the making of flour, and my stone threshing floor is the best around.

I have loaves of all kinds of grains and added ingredients, both spiced, filled, and sweet. I have different shapes, for both plain and ceremonial use, and have bread made from different kinds of ovens. I also have non-bread goods.

Breads from Various Grains and Ingredients. Whatever your favorite is, I have it!
