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 deal: for $5, you get $10 worth of freshly baked breads and other sweet treats at Great Harvest Bread Co. on Old Cheney Road.
Great Harvest specializes in baking tasty delicacies and healthy, homemade breads that are high in fiber, free of chemicals and additives, and crafted every day with freshly milled whole-wheat flour. The bread selection changes each day of the week according to a monthly schedule; previous offerings include honey whole wheat and Dakota bread, a baked bundle of pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and millet. For a full-fledged lunch, check the sundry new sandwich options, which are served in the bakery from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Layers of high-quality meats, cheeses, veggies, and peanut butter and jellies mingle marvelously atop hearty whole-grain slices (half sandwiches start at $2.75, whole sandwiches start at $3.95).
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.
