A layer of bread forms the foundation of Cairo’s famous food pyramid, which, like most Egyptian monuments, had to be rebuilt numerous times after voracious pharaohs insisted on eating it. Taste the modern equivalent of a monumental doughy base with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of sandwiches and bread at House of Bread Bakery Cafe's Albuquerque location.
Amid clouds of fresh, stone-milled wheat flour, House of Bread bakes legions of handmade loaves using wholesome, natural ingredients. Turning to apian allies for honey sweeteners, the bread barons only furnish their mixing bowls with innocent eggs, honest butter, and unadulterated olive and canola oils. Browsers can peruse various titles from the extensive leavened library, which typically includes sourdough, garlic cheddar, apple-cinnamon swirl autographed by Mark Twain, jalapeño jack, and Grandma's white. House of Bread’s fresh sandwiches clasp gluten-free Boar's Head meats and cheeses between fresh bread ($4.75–$6.75 each), and morning munchers can choose from a parade of pastries ($1.75+). All the while, House of Bread’s colorfully penned specials decorate the dry-erase-board menu alongside the current standings of fantasy baker teams.
House of Bread
More than 25 breads, made from fresh, natural wheat flour, fill the racks at House of Bread, ready to be toted home and eaten, or sliced for the bakery's hearty sandwiches. The stone-milled flour combines with honey, which serves as a natural sweetener, and natural ingredients to create mouth-watering loaves of challah, raspberry swirl, gluten-free rice bread, and over 20 others. A rotating schedule of breads, muffins, and scones keeps the menu as fresh as the pastries.
