Great Harvest specializes in baking tasty delicacies and healthy, homemade breads ($4.85–$6.50 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 pumpkin swirl.

For carb connoisseurs who prefer breaded delights that are easily juggled, Great Harvest bakes scones, muffins, cookies, and bars (from $1.50 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.
Six Yelpers give Great Harvest Bread Co. in Hillsboro a five-star average. Here's what they had to say about it:
- You are greeted by one of the most friendly staff I have ever encountered, and a Grandmother's dining room feel. I ordered a half-sandwich for $3.95, to which you get to choose your own bread (at least four options), meat, garnishments and the like. – Amber S.
- This bread is not only amazingly good (and addicting), but also healthy. Not a lot of ingredients and they are all your basic stuff (nothing you need your chemistry teacher to pronounce for you). My fave is anything with berries, or raisins. – bobby d.
