Although many inventions have been hailed as the "greatest thing since sliced bread," none of these other innovations have been as popular as bread among the pigeon community. Please pigeons and technophiles alike with the cutting-edge loaf technology of today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of fresh baked goods at Terranova Bakery in the Bronx.
For more than 40 years, Terranova Bakery has romanced palates with the flavors of its authentic, coal-fired brick oven breads. Never polluting its Sicilian family recipes with modern preservatives or postmodern angst, the bakery has built an obsessive following of yeastaholics thanks to meticulously minded breadworks and dedication to splendid service. Every morning, Terranova whips up a flourishing spectacle of freshly floured fare, creating a selection of treats that includes immaculate kaiser rolls ($.35 each) and heroes ($.55 each) for creating worship-worthy sandwiches. Strike down hunger with scrumptious, crunchy baguettes ($1.35 each) and crusty, seeded bastones ($1.60 each), or create pizza’d perfection upon the foundation of Terranova’s large pizza crusts ($4 each) or large tomato foccacias ($3.75 each). Whether it’s bagels ($.40 each) for breakfast or 2 pounds of yeast ($1.50) for lunch, Terranova has everything to assuage even the crustiest critics.
Four Yelpers give Terranova Bakery an average of 4.5 stars:
- Since I can remember, I've been coming here to get my bread, and it always has the same satisfying crust. Perfect for eating in chunks with cold cuts from Teitel Bros a few blocks away. – David C., Yelp, 7/7/10
- I hate crusts, but eating one right out of the oven was so tastey [sic]. The bread whites had a nice push back to your teeth: al dente? The smell was wholesome and inviting. – Jade H., Yelp, 1/18/09
