A cold day, like today calls for some nice homemade soup and bread. I had the opportunity to nosh on an amazing lunch at Breads Bakery a few months back while I worked in the Union Square area of the city. It’s located on 18 East 16th Street and is worth a trip if you’re in the area.
This is a great place if you want to eat
fresh and healthy. They have amazing breads and goodies from babka to amazing sufganiyot that are made fresh daily. They also have a cafe where they are known for their coffee, fresh salads and soups, sandwiches and flatbreads that are not only delicious but affordable and worth every penny.
I also believe their motto says a lot, “Our bakery believes in artisanal, handmade, traditional baking techniques which is why we have the factory and oven on site. Most of the breads we bake are made with whole grains and go through a slow proofing process, which sharpens and improves the taste. A lot of thought has been given to the components of the bread, types of flour and the addition of seeds and grains which increase the nutritional value. We select only the finest ingredients and, when possible, use natural and organic ingredients.”
I’ve been impressed with everything I’ve had there since I’ve had the opportunity to try a variety of their breads and pastries. I love the sufganiyot that they had available during the holidays, and I loved that you had to wait until 11am to get them since they were prepared fresh daily. It was so worth the wait!
I highly recommend grabbing a light bite and treat from Breads Bakery if you work in the Union Square area– your taste buds will thank you!! 🙂
