Fervere is located on the West side of Downtown at 1702 Summit and it’s a bread lover’s paradise. Fred Spompinato opened the bakery in May of 2000 and the shop uses premium ingredients and a lengthy fermentation process to ensure a superior product. Fervere is only open 3 days a week, (Thursday, Friday, & Saturday) until 7 p.m. on the weekdays and 2 p.m. on Saturday. The bread sells out quickly though so they often close early. Patrons who’ve tried any of their 11 different bread offerings can understand the demand.
Newcomers to Fervere have to try the Orchard Bread and the Cheese Slipper. The Orchard has pieces of apricots, apples, and raisins baked into the dough. The Cheese Slipper is ciabatta with garlic cheese curds on top and smokey cheddar pieces mixed in the dough. Both are sensational.
The surrounding neighborhood boasts some of the best food destinations in Kansas City. Blue Bird Bistro, Chez Elle, The Westside Local, Lill’s on 17th, and FUD are all within walking distance of 17th and Summit.
