As at many Georgian shops there's a glassed-in display of assorted salads, but the focus is on the bread; the single word in Georgian script, at the center of the awning, means "bakery." And though it employs a traditional stone oven to prepare several varieties of khachapuri, the elongated bread called shoti seems to be the best-seller. A brace of shoti are pictured on the awning, and inside, behind the counter, they were racked like cordwood.
