It’s 9:30 p.m. – do you know of any good places to get decent bread at this hour? I was really craving some Nashoba Brook bread tonight but at 9:30 p.m. your impulse bread-buying options are limited. I was able to make a quick run over to the Whole Foods nearest me before they closed at 10:00 p.m. I wasn’t sure if they carried my current favorite bread from Nashoba Brook but they have both When Pigs Fly bread and decent store brand loaves to choose from. Alas, being so close to closing time, there was a small selection of bread available so I settled on a loaf of the Whole Foods Oat Nut Bread.
I know of the 24-hour Shaws on Comm. Ave. but didn’t want to go out there, walk through a huge bright store, buy $40 worth of items I probably don’t need, and get home an hour later. Plus while they have a wide selection of bread available, not much of it is that great. I didn’t want to settle for lousy bread. I know many, many fans of Iggy’s Bread, typically carried at Shaws, but the last time I had Iggy’s bread I just wasn’t impressed. I should give it another chance but until then, it would be nice to have other options. I am a huge fan of the Trader Joe’s in Brookline, their organic fruits and veggies are inexpensive and not to be missed, but loaf after loaf I am still not in love with their bread yet. I keep hoping to find one I really like there because it is convenient, has healthy food I like, and is also open until 10 p.m.
Any thoughts on where to grab decent bread at a late hour in town? Take pity on this night owl!
