At Lakeside Bakery and Caf?, freshly baked, all-natural breads open minds and mouths to the potent possibilities of the most pyramid- fortifying of food groups. Simple, wholesome ingredients restore bread to its unbleached, unrefined glory; loaves emerge from their incubators with hard, crispy shells and soft fluffy interiors, much like Bruce Willis. A spacious, bright caf? features dazzling geometric light fixtures and soaring windows draped with red and marigold curtains, providing inviting environs for dough dabblers to peruse the menu for a yeasty feast. For breakfast, pay homage to the gluten gods with French toast, cinnamon-apple bread baked golden brown and dusted with icing sugar ($5.49). Lunch goers, meanwhile, can sample a variety of soups, salads, and sandwiches such as the Philly beef on ciabatta bread ($7.25) or the Monte Cristo, egg-dipped bread with Black Forest ham and smoked turkey ($7.65).
