What You'll Get
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 freshly-baked bread, bakery bites, and barista beverages at The Mill Bread Co., a whole-wheat specialty bakery located in The Hollows shopping center.
The Mill's American and European artisan breads, crafted from stone-ground whole wheat and all-natural ingredients, are kneaded by hand to doughy superbness. Opt for sweet loaves such as whole-grain honey and cinnamon-raison walnut to make flavorful morning toast, or wrap slices of savory cracked-pepper parmesan or spinach feta around meat and cheese for luscious lunches (breads range from $3.50 to $6.95.) The Mill also dishes up its own bill of café lunch fare with protein-packed breakfast sandwiches ($3.25), quiches, personal pizzas ($4.25), and crisp summer salads ($4.75–$4.95).
Or, if you wake in the a.m. after spending a night dreaming of steel children and living motorcycles, usher your brain back into reality with one of The Mill's superbly-beaned brews ($1.50–$1.80) and pastries. The Mill offers its own private-label coffees along with Steep & Brew steeped brews; its specialty coffee, Icing on the Cake, is a warm, sweet cup frosted with a dollop of cinnamon. Iced coffees, lattes, cappuccinos, The Republic of Tea Company teas, and blended-fruit chillers eclecticify The Mill's thirst-quenchers.
Traditional jazz and blues tunes float across The Mill's bright-and-friendly café area, and the smell of freshly-ground coffee tickles noses like fragrant feather dusters. The bakery's founders, a passionate pair of bread enthusiasts, have strived to make visiting the shop a memorable experience, unlike a forgettable foray to find hardtack in a shipwreck.
