Without bread, flour would be so abundant it'd coat the entire earth in a fine white powder, causing museum curators to accidentally collect hibernating bears that appeared petrified. Keep flour where it belongs with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of freshly baked bread and other sweet treats at Great Harvest Bread Co. in Birmingham.
Great Harvest Bread Co. specializes in baking treats and healthy, homemade bread ($4–$6.95/loaf) that is all-natural, free of preservatives, and crafted daily with freshly ground flour. The bread selection changes frequently, enabling customers to test-drive a variety of whole grain breads, including cranberry flax bread ($6.50/loaf) on Tuesdays and High Country Crunch ($5.25/loaf) Thursdays through Saturdays. In addition to daily specials, Great Harvest also preps and rises six everyday bread varieties, such as cinnamon swirl ($5.25/loaf) and nine-grain ($5.25/loaf). For portable, palm-friendly baked goods, browsers can tip-toe to the counter to take in the scents of fresh biscottis ($1.25 each) and lemon bars ($2.25 each).

Great Harvest Bread Co.
Owners Tina and Kevin Yancey didn't start their marriage with the idea of running a bakery. Kevin, a business owner, and Tina, a corporate employee, were simply fans of their local Great Harvest franchise and the freshly baked breads the staffers forged from scratch each day. With the couple's natural love for cooking and entertaining, they quickly realized the fulfillment they would gain from opening their own Great Harvest bakery. In 2007, they found that fulfillment by unveiling their very first location in Las Vegas.
Though far from the glitter of the Strip, the Yanceys' Birmingham location still bakes pillowy breads with the same techniques as the original Great Harvest that impressed them years ago. Everything from sweet scones and cookies to 10 types of flavorful bread are made completely from scratch with whole-grain flour the company mills itself and baked in an oven fueled by the company's fire-breathing staff members. The menu transforms from month to month, giving new and veteran customers alike new treats to taste throughout the year.
