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 appear petrified. Keep flour where it belongs with today's deal: for $5, you get $10 worth of sandwiches, freshly baked breads, baked goods, drinks, and more at Great Harvest Bread Co. in Fairlawn.
Great Harvest’s breads, which are baked with premium whole wheat from family-owned farms in Montana, come in many flavors that change daily. On Tuesday, stock up on honey-whole-wheat and apple-scrapple loaves to slice and cuddle for comfort during scary thunderstorms. Freshly baked country-fresh sourdough is available on Fridays, and high-protein breads in a variety of varieties (including rosemary-garlic and cranberry-crunch) are freshly baked throughout the week. For those preferring sweet treats, the July menu showcases sour cream fruit pie and strawberry shortcake, as well as well-stacked sandwich selections that are offered 11 a.m.–2 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Creative connoisseurs can hand-select their sandwich toppings from a list of smoked turkey, honey ham, tender roast beef, and limitless fixin's ($5.75), while recovering carnivores can overcome their withdrawal jitters by opting for the pre-conceived vegetarian sandwich ($5.75), loaded with red pepper hummus, feta cheese, romaine lettuce, tomato, and cukes.
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 a day 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.
