After finding grain-paste residue among Neolithic sites, archaeologists have concluded that bread is one of the oldest foods known to humanity, second only to the bowl of ribbon candy at Grandma's house. Today's Groupon provides you with droves of doughy delight: for $5, you get $15 worth of fresh bread, sweets, and coffee at Breadsmith of St. Louis. Since opening over 10 years ago, Breadsmith has accumulated an arsenal of accolades, including being listed by the Riverfront Times as having some of the best bread in the city.
From the first waft as you dive headfirst through Breadsmith's door and slither your way to its inviting counter, it's readily apparent that each morsel of tantalizing fare is made from scratch, trace amounts of sniff, and stardust. The family-centric bakery uses some of the finest, freshest, and most forbidden fruit-like ingredients to create the city's highest-quality breads. Breadsmith's list of dozens of breads changes seasonally and consists of many European-style and whole-grain loaves. April's daily bread offerings, for example, range from $2.79 to $9.50 a loaf and include French baguettes ($3.59), rustic Italian ($4.25) paisanos, sourdough ($4.29), heart-healthy flaxseed ($4.79), braided challah that'll make you hollah ($5.99), apple-pie bread ($6.99) that occasionally contains baseballs and pictures of Mom, and a few surprises. All of the bread is tenderly handmade and hearth-baked in a six-ton Bongard oven while being sung gentle lullabies.
Along with doughy delectables, Breadsmith is an early morning master of getting ocean-floor explorers ready for the day's dives. An early morning lineup starts at 6 a.m. on weekdays with a percolation of Kaldi's Coffee and an assortment of sweet breads such as blueberry-lemon muffins, banana bread, chocolate-chip scones, cinnamon buns, coffee cakes ($9.50), and more. You can even start the day off with STL's breakfast of champions, gooey butter cake ($7.95). Use today's Groupon at Breadsmith of St. Louis and fill up your family with lusciously leavened loaves fresh from the oven—or wait for them to go stale and then use them as trebuchet ammunition to protect your family from orc sieges.
- Every day brings a new loaf (raisin cinnamon, honey oat, honey whole wheat, rosemary garlic ciabatta, Asiago cheese, gluten-free, Greek olive, and more and more). Every day features the wildly popular apple pie bread, a lip-smacking, calorie-loaded concoction whose every ounce lives up to its sinful-sounding promise. – Riverfront Times
