23 Bakeries That Accept EBT/Food Stamps/SNAP

While you cannot use your EBT card to purchased baked goods at bakery-cafes like Panera Bread or restaurants like The Cheesecake Factory, you can use your EBT card at many bakeries, bakery outlets, and grocery store bakery departments. You can use your EBT card to buy most items from bakeries, including bread, cookies, and cakes. Before shopping, you may want to check our list of what you can (and can’t) buy with EBT.

Below, we list the bakeries that accept EBT (formerly known as food stamps). Note that, in additional to the national and regional stores in our list, you may want to check with local, independently-owned bakeries to find out whether they take EBT.
