It depends on what kind of store I am in.
A regular grocery store.
Do you have any other cheaper bread of the same size?

In an upscale boutique bakery:

Do you have any other less expensive bread of the same size?

But don't be surprised if they look at you with a bit of disdain.

Thank you Alpheccastars Emotion: rose.

Personally, I would say "less expensive."

My reasoning for that choice is that "cheaper" can refer to a lesser price or to lesser quality; whereas, "less expensive" is specific to price. If you said "cheaper" it still would be assumed that you were asking for a lower priced option, but I prefer to be specific.

For example, "That shirt is cheap!" can mean it has a very low price, or it can mean it is of poor quality.

Bread at a regular grocery store isn't something most people would consider "expensive" (at least in the U.S. anyway), so I can see why A.S. and others would feel odd about asking for a "less expensive" option for an item that isn't generally considered "expensive" in the first place. Perhaps try, "Do you have any other bread of the same size available at a lower price?"

This applies to a dispute with the establishment, not asking a question.
