Win over a paperclip-stealing office mate by picking up a soft bundle of cinnamon chip bread to share before work on a Monday, Wednesday, or Friday. On most days of the week, gluten-free loaves are also available. For those preferring breaded delights that are easily juggled, ogle a variety of muffins, scones, and tea cakes. Creative connoisseurs can stop by the Palomar location to top their choice of bread with premium sandwich meats and veggies ($3.60–$4.90 for a half sandwich, $6.40–$7.95 for a whole).
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 two days, so each loaf plumps superbly with freshness in the oven. The friendly staff of breadsmen knead each loaf individually by hand, so bread comes out of the oven with old-timey, fun-to-slice irregularity.
