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, sandwiches, and sweet treats at Great Harvest Bread Co. on Central Avenue or 21st Street.
Great Harvest specializes in baking tasty delicacies and healthy, homemade breads ($4.77–$6.71 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 seasonal schedule; check the bread and sweets menu for the latest loaves including honey whole wheat and Dakota bread, a baked bundle of pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and millet. Gluten-free and high-protein breads are available in a variety of varieties, including white cheddar garlic and cinnamon burst/swirl, and specialty spelt loaves are baked on the third Thursday of each summer month. For carb connoisseurs who prefer breaded delights that are easily juggled, Great Harvest bakes scones ($1.50), muffins ($1.50), cookies ($1.50), cinnamon rolls ($1.75, Friday and Saturday only), and bars ($1.75). Proteinholics can sandwich meaty meats including roast beef, chicken salad, and tuna salad between the bread of their choice to create sandwich menu bliss ($3.95 for half sandwich, $5.95 a whole, both served with chips, carrots, or pasta salad and a sweet or dill pickle).
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.
