Poetry would be comprised entirely of haikus and sonnets dedicated to cakes and pastries if poets didn't devour their idyllic subjects before having a chance to write. Say what meter and rhythm cannot with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of baked goods and café fare at The Flour Pot Bakery. Utilizing fresh, all-natural ingredients, The Flour Pot Bakery whips up a scrumptious selection of European–style breads, temping pastries, café eats, and more. Discerning tongues will become soaked in an anticipatory mouth sweat while perusing the menu’s varied items amid the modern boulangerie’s arena of divine aromas. Nosh on freshly baked baguettes, specialty breads such as The Flour Pot signature bread ($5.29), stuffed sandwiches ($5.99+), and slices of savory quiches ($5.29+). An assortment of sweet delights awaits soon-to-be sticky fingers, including chocolate croissants ($1.99), delectable cakes, and lip-smacking blueberry almond tarts ($4.99) that boast more taste than a pie filled with Renoir paintings.
The Flour Pot Bakery
The Flour Pot Bakery contains a mélange of culinary influences at what appears to be a seemingly straightforward bakery. The team uses two-thirds of the 2,200 square-foot space solely for the production of handmade french, italian, and swiss breads, Jewish challa, tahitian mousse, and of course, Florida citrus brioche. Every drop of water is filtered before its added to the unbleached, unbromated, premium flour, and the crew limits the amount of sugar in its recipes, save for decadent favorites such as éclairs and triple-layer chocolate cakes. Though the shop’s case primarily displays sweet treats, lunch and breakfast has a place in the bakery as well. Croissants and the shop’s signature bread sandwich everything from eggs and ham to turkey and tuna, which customers can enjoy within the sunny café, or take to the local farmer’s market, grocer, or misguided Mars rover.
