The Secret Bakery is a bakery and coffee shop in Northampton, Massachusetts. It is located somewhat off the beaten path, away from the downtown area of the city. It first appeared in strip 1845.
The bakery is owned by Jim and (until recently) run by Padma, a lady of apparently Indian/Indonesian descent. She knows Angus from the times when he was dating one of her employees, Renee. In the shop's first appearance, a dark-haired man with glasses and a tattoo on his neck was talking to Elliot. He has not appeared since.
The Bakery is located in a nondescript white-brick building with the following sign on the front:
