Hewn uses organic flour and grains. We partner with several local farmers to source our ingredients.
Our Libertyville outpost offers a curated selection of items. Certain items, such as sandwiches, baguettes, challah, ciabatta, almond and chocolate almond croissants, canelés, pan loaves and baby loaves are only available in Evanston.

Our bread selection rotates daily and consists of our country loaf, blonde country loaf, whole wheat seeded and rotating specialty loaves. They are available on a first come, first served basis.
