Mamadou and Mame Mbaye own and operate the bakery at 63 Swanton St. in Winchester, and a new location in the former Tula design store space in Arlington.
Mamadou’s bakes loaves of raisin pecan, cheese, sesame, fennel, and olives, along with ciabatta, baguettes, babka, sourdough, whole wheat, and French loaves. The pastry list includes croissants, danishes, Belgian waffles, crepes, and cookies.
The Winchester location of Mamadou’s opened nearly a decade ago. Previously, Mamadou spent a decade baking at Whole Foods after emigrating from Senegal, where he originally learned French-style bread baking. He has maintained a connection with Whole Foods; the Mbayes do some wholesale business with the company.
