Without bread, flour would be so abundant that 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 deal: for $5, you get $10 worth of freshly baked breads, sandwiches, sweet treats, and other food at Great Harvest Bread Co. in Columbia.
Great Harvest specializes in baking tasty delicacies and healthy, homemade breads ($5–$7.75 per loaf) that are high in fiber, free of preservatives, and crafted every day with freshly milled flour. The bread selection changes each day of the week according to a monthly schedule; previous offerings include honey whole wheat and onion dill rye. Sandwich enthusiasts can get their fill with Great Harvest's lunch options, including pepper-bleu roast beef, California Cobb, and cucumber and rye (around $6.75 each). For carb connoisseurs who prefer breaded delights that are easily juggled, Great Harvest bakes scones, muffins, cookies, and bars (from $1.60 each).
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 soon 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.
