The long weekend is almost here! To celebrate, I'd like to talk about our new favorite spot in the city of Southlake that has got us falling in love with bread all over again, Great Harvest Bread Company :)
The first thing you'd notice when you walk into this place is the rustic, magnolia-ish vibe that they've got going on here with wooden tables, wooden crate boxes, a marquee sign, and metal signs.
You can hear songs like Vance Joy's Georgia playing in the background, and sometimes even the sound of the employees karaoke-ing to the store's playlist while happily preparing your sandwiches.
I dig their mission! Especially the part where it says, "Run fast to help everyone and give generously to others." That should be our life mission in general!
Love the nice Texas touch there with the God Bless Texas sign, the pale blue hydrangeas, and the coffee marquee sign. This place feels like a cozy country home that you just want to stay in for hours. And don't get me started on their housemade bread! And butter!
The Vanilla Honey Butter served on a warm toast (ask for Bread of the Day!) was just divine! That, served with a cup of locally roasted coffee or craft tea? Hmm...I know where I'd be going for my Fall/Winter-warm-beverage-fix this year!
If you're craving for something more filling than breads and muffins, they have a great variety of sandwiches and salads. My favorites was the Grown Up Grilled Cheese! I had it with some sparking clementine soda, and topped it off with their delicious Cashew Crunch Bar!
If you plan to visit this place at anytime soon, I suggest you to start at the bread tasting board. Just pick a bread, maybe a little butter, and sample the delicious baked goods! You won't be disappointed!
Of course my little J wouldn't sit still. He was dancing while standing on his chair and drinking soda! Notice the camo cast on his left hand? Yeah, he's back on it for a couple of months to speed up the recovery process. If you're wondering what it's for, read about it here :)
Their mission about helping people is not just for the sign they hang on their walls. GH Southlake actually saves their breads for homeless shelters!
Now that's a bakery, as it ought to be --> Feeding the hungry and bringing a little happiness to people's hearts with one fluffy, made-from-scratch, quality bread at a time.
Can't wait to come back here and chill with my family :)
Have an awesome Labor Day weekend y'all!
