Though bread is often used as a slang term for money, it lacks the woody, stovepipe flavor profile of a crisp five-dollar bill. Exchange currency for more edible earnings with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of baked goods and sandwiches at Montana Gold Bread Company.
The bakers at Montana Gold Bread Company rise each morning to mill wheat flour in the shop's stone burr mill and knead fresh dough by hand. The bakery's rotating bread schedule enlivens each day of the week with personal love letters in the form of loaves, such as Monday's cherry-apple challah ($6.99) and Friday's rosemary-olive bread ($4.99). Enjoy the everyday deliciousness of favorites such as cinnamon swirl ($5.49) or carve the spooky face of a beloved congressman into a loaf of pumpkin bread ($5.69). Morning commuters can stop in for a cinnamon roll ($1.79), made fresh from scratch daily, and lunch-goers can accessorize slices with the fixings of Montana Gold's sandwiches from traditional roast beef ($5.49) to kid-approved peanut butter & jelly ($3.29). Or opt for a boxed lunch, which includes a choice of sandwich, a fruit, pasta or potato salad, and a dessert ($8.29–$9.99). Montana Gold Bread Company proudly calls itself an exhibition bakery, beckoning early risers to the shop both to watch bakers knead the day's dough and to recite flavor-enhancing incantations.
Montana Gold Bread Co.
Each morning, Montana Gold Bread Co.'s bakers make their way to a stone burr mill where they grind red wheat from a farm in Montana into flour. That flour goes into dough that they knead by hand before baking it into preservative-free breads such as cherry-apple challah or honey whole wheat. They carve loaves into slices for sandwiches with housemade chicken salad or roast beef and horseradish. Patrons can also find sweet treats such as pecan-encrusted cinnamon rolls and fresh cookies.
