Rise and shine and indulge in carbs. Rebel Bread opens Sunday morning in Five Points.

Head baker Zach Martinucci and business partner Rene Hosman set up shop for the bakery and bread school inside the Temple building at 2400 Curtis St., where they’ll be joined by local roaster Element Coffee, Five Points Pizza and Little Bites Bakery. And don’t even say “too many cooks” because they’re bakers.

“I’m excited to introduce Denver to Rebel Bread through our first brick-and-mortar space and look forward to sharing my unique approach to bread and baking,” Martinucci said in a press release. “We hope to not only introduce people to new bread flavors and one-of-a-kind pastries, but also to create a community through our food.”

It’s possible you’ve already tasted what Rebel Bread has to offer. The bakery has provided pastries to cafés and whatnot around Denver for a little while now, and has had pop-ups in coffee shops including Blue Sparrow, Amethyst Coffee and Huckleberry Roasters. Or maybe you’ve met Martinucci in one of his baking classes or heard him on his podcast, Against the Grain.

Now in its own brick-and-mortar, Rebel Bread will be serving naturally-fermented, gluten-reduced and highly-flavored breads, sweet and savory pastries, bagels, toasts and more.

Rebel Bread officially opens at 7:30 a.m. Sunday, then you’ll have to wait a couple days to get it because normal hours are 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. To celebrate the grand opening, Martinucci will host the first bagel-making class at 10 a.m.
