While we were shopping for whiskey at the Golden Moon Distillery, the lady running it mentioned that when the weather is nice she opens up the garage door to attract the customers from Grateful Bread across the street.
Grateful Bread’s retail shop is only open on Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm, so we were to late to buy anything after our visit to Golden Moon Distillery.
Grateful Bread was not open the last two Saturdays since they aren’t open on Christmas or New Year’s Day.
Grateful Bread was open this morning and because the sides of the roads are covered in snow, Bruce drove the truck the short distance to Grateful Bread. Normally, we would have walked, but I was glad we drove with all the snow and ice.
I didn’t take any pictures of the retail shop. The staff was friendly. They even had a table outside with order forms so if you were uncomfortable going inside, the staff would bring your order out to you.
We elected to go inside. It smelled wonderful! I wanted to get one of everything, but that wasn’t practical. I got a croissant, a pumpernickel country loaf, and a French baguette.
The Grateful Bread uses sourdough to make their bread. The croissant was light and flaky, with a hint of sweetness. I spilt it with Bruce and I wished I had bought more! I was hungry, so I didn’t take time to get a picture of the croissant. The pumpernickel load had a lovely sour tang to it. The French baguette had a crisp crust and lovely inside.
Nox, being the ever hopeful dog, was very interested in the bread.
If you happen to be in the Golden area, if you can eat sourdough bread, the Grateful Bread is well worth stopping in for their amazing sourdough breads. Here is the link to their site: http://gratefulbread.com/index.html
