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 appear petrified. Keep flour where it belongs with today's deal: for $7, you get $15 worth of sandwiches, freshly baked breads, baked goods, drinks, and more at Great Harvest Bread Co., located next to Kinko's in Hurstbourne.
Stop in this summer to sample just-baked peach bread and seasonal MVB strawberry-shortcake bread. Freshly baked hamburger buns, fresh-fruit bowls, and sandwich trays make ideal picnic or backyard barbecue companions. Or, dine on full-fledged bread creations from Great Harvest's café menu, which boasts plenty of well-stacked sandwich selections. Mounds of bacon-topped turkey, layered with avocado spread and homemade mayo, provide a substantial base for the southwestern spicy turkey-bacon club ($6.25). Kicky add-ins (cumin, jalapeño, cilantro) give the sandwich flavor. Vegetarians can try the veggie, a famed fill-up loaded with carrots, cukes, lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, and Susie's own Farmer's Market Veggie Spread ($6.25). Kids can nosh on grilled cheese, PB&J ($3.75 each), or a fresh-fruit bowl ($3.25). Freshly made sides and sweets round out the menu.
Great Harvest’s devotion to the art of bread making is audible in the early morning, when its on-site mill softly hums as it grinds grain into flour. All the freshly ground flour is used within a day after it's milled, so loaves plump superbly in the oven. Each freshly baked bread bundle has been kneaded individually by hand and comes out of the oven with old-timey, fun-to-slice irregularity.
