Beware of the
husband-and-wife team of Nicole Lane and Joseph Rodriguez.
Five years ago, the duo transformed innocent Park Slopers from
bread novices to bakery mavens with their first Uprising Bread
Bakery, on Seventh Avenue. Their window, heaped with big, crusty
Calamata olive loaves; multi-grain rounds with brittle crusts
and tender centers; and nearly black chocolate bread studded
with tart cranberries, lured unsuspecting locals inside.
A year later, they opened a second shop on Seventh Avenue, with
seating, and began serving the best coffee around.
Cobble Hill residents are no longer safe from the Uprising’s
carbohydrate-rich charms. In June, Lane and Rodriguez opened
their third bakery, on Court Street. Already customers can be
spotted carrying out bags of long baguettes and boxes of their
damp, bittersweet brownies. Soon, they will set up cafe-style
seating so locals can linger over croissants and Danishes.
You’ve been warned.
Uprising Bread Bakery (210 Court St. between Warren and Wyckoff
streets in Cobble Hill) accepts cash only. Pastry $l.50-$3.50,

7:30 am to 9 pm, and Sundays, from 8:30 am to 9 pm. For more
