The phrase "breaking bread" arose in medieval times, when banquet hosts would split open every loaf to make sure no one had hidden a trebuchet inside. Seize a sweet slice with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of baked goods, ice cream, and lunch fare at Fredericksburg Bakery.
The oldest continuously operating business on Main Street, Fredericksburg Bakery is armed with baked-good blueprints dating back to 1917 as well as modern marvels like their specialty sweet german pretzel ($3.25). Each of these twisted treats is hand-knotted from flaky puff pastry by elite Boy Scouts and imbued with brown sugar, pecans, and almonds. Sweet teeth can sink further into any of 16 of Blue Bell ice-cream flavors ($2.60–$2.90) or some freshly sliced Fredericksburg fudge ($13.95/slice). The lunch menu puts Fredericksburg Bakery's edible expertise to more savory use, with custom mesquite-turkey and peppered-ham sandwiches ($7.95) and plump Opa's sausages snuggling into a fluffy house-baked pumpernickel or white-bread robe ($4.95).
