About Oak Bakery

Husband and wife Lou Fontana and Louise Ulrich first opened Oat Bakery’s doors on W Hayley in 2017, but long before the idea for a brick and mortar bakery came about, Oat’s recipes were being developed in a home kitchen in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Artist, baker, and (now) co-owner of Oat, Louise grew up in Copenhagen where her mom, Else, was a professional marathoner. Else is the one who taught Louise how to bake, and as an athlete, she developed an arsenal of recipes for homemade bread that were packed with nutritious, quality ingredients, fueling both her running practice and her family.

When Louise’s husband, Lou, first visited Denmark and tried Else’s bread, he knew they had to share it with their friends in Santa Barbara, and what started as a way of sharing homemade bread with close friends and family quickly grew into a successful business.

Eventually, they started selling at pop-ups, took on several wholesale accounts, and finally found the bake space and storefront on W Hayley we all know and love today.

Oat’s bread is proof that bread is not “bad,” but it is only as “good” as its ingredients.
Today, Oat sells bread to foodies and athletes alike, and only creates products that are both nourishing and delicious.

As a gift to the participants in the Tuesday Night Starter Series, Oat is gifting each runner a mini Farmers Market Danish Style Bun.

These buns are filled with nutrient-dense oats, flax, and organic wheat flours, leavened with natural, organic yeast, and are packed full of seasonal Farmers Market Produce.

They make a great breakfast to start your day (toasted with butter), a perfect mid-day snack (topped with one of Oat’s seasonal spreads), or are a delicious way to refuel post-run.
