The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but to make it that far you have to be disguised as baked goods. Don a cape of baked goodwill with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of baked goods and fresh café fare at Joseph's Storehouse Restaurant & Bakery. Joseph's makes everything on its menu from scratch every day as part of its mission to provide Texans with food as healthy and wholesome as a toddler triathlon. Early birds can order off the breakfast menu, which features biscuits and gravy ($7.75) and breakfast burritos ($8.25) made with brown rice, beans, scrambled eggs, cheese, avocado, green onions, a homemade tortilla, and fresh salsa. Sandwiches ($9.15) come with your choice of fruit, soup, salad, or potato salad and include such bread-wielding classics as tuna, chicken salad, and knuckle. Hearty entrees ($10.50), such as chicken potpie and lasagna, come with piping-warm yeast rolls for playing potato-less hot potato. Well-prepared customers can settle grumbling bellies of the future by taking home a cookie ($1.95) or slice of cake ($5.50) from Joseph's bakery.
Joseph's Storehouse & Bakery
The Old Testament tells the story of Joseph, a man who accumulated so much grain that it was like sand on the seashore; there was so much that he even lost track of all the records. Because of this abundance, he was able to save a nation from famine.
The owners of Joseph's Storehouse & Bakery have a similar story. After taking a serious interest in eating healthfully, they began to stockpile organically grown grain in their garage so they could make their own bread from flour they ground themselves. Like the wholesome breads that got them started, all their foods today are baked fresh and are free of chemicals, preservatives, and unnatural ingredients. Their expansive menu extinguishes meal-specific hunger pangs, quenching breakfast cravings with gourmet oatmeal and cinnamon-almond french toast, eradicating lunch cravings with classic club sandwiches, and solving dinner dilemmas with lasagna and chicken pot pie.
