For lunch today I was really craving a summer salad or sandwich and decided on The Bread Box, located at 555 W Bitters in Artisans’ Alley. The vision for the restaurant was New American Cuisine with a focus on their delicious breads. Everything is made in house, including the 30 bread varieties baked each week, or sourced from local farms. This ensures that your food is not only flavorful, but also fresh!
The hours at The Bread Box are 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday, allowing you to choose between breakfast and lunch. The breakfast menu features everything from a bread pudding french toast to a breakfast club on a milk and honey english muffin. For lunch you can choose from a variety of salads, sandwiches, and soups. I decided to try a few customer favorites after being guided by the front manager, Diane, who was extremely helpful and friendly. The lemon-dill chicken salad was first and can be put on top of a bed of greens with cucumbers and strawberries, or enjoyed as a sandwich on a toasted honey wheat seed. This was so light and refreshing that I know I will be going back all summer long for more! The Bread Box burger is an easy dish to understand the popularity. It includes a ½ pound short rib and brisket patty with fontina, bacon jam, lettuce, and tomato. The turkey club was also very flavorful with bacon, kale, dates, butternut squash, pecans, brie, and roasted shallot aioli on foccacia. I know you’re probably feeling full just from reading about all of this food, but when you visit you have to try a dessert. The bread pudding and pecan pie cobbler were amazing and everything you imagine a freshly baked treat to be. We were told that the apple pie and cinnamon rolls are also major crowd pleasers and something I will be going back for soon.
Next time you are planning to eat out for breakfast or lunch, make sure to give The Bread Box a try! Once you visit, let us know in the comments what your favorite was.
