In the 19th century, neighbors would congregate in local bakeries, butcher shops, and candlemakeries to chat about the weekend’s brutal turf war and swap Jughead hats. Today’s deal gives you a taste of that simpler time: for $7, you get $15 worth of fine, fresh-baked fare at Grandaisy Bakery. Choose the most convenient location for you, and select above to get a store-specific Groupon.
Grandaisy is an artisanal bakery that concocts its board of fare in small batches out of fresh, local ingredients, so come early to snag your day’s panini, be it one with bresaola, parmesan, and arugula, or one with beets, goat cheese, and arugula. A mushroom-loaded funghi pizza can also make less of a wasteland of Facebook updates and email avoidance. Add a little sweetness to a tough day with Grandaisy’s wide range of dolci, and torte such as bread pudding and the delectable pullman dolce. For a perfect dinnertime treat, pick up some fresh-baked, rustic Italian pane ($2.40–$11) and some olive oil for dipping.
Grandaisy prides itself on being a community bakery, a place where everyone can come together to enjoy the luxurious smells of fresh bread and even fresher circuses. Meet the neighbors you’ve only glared at suspiciously by buying extra Groupons and sharing them.
