The Good Earth

Copy Link
Good Earth features a selection of dense multigrain rolls, crisp flatbread, crunchy thin whole wheat crackers, and, most recently added to the rotational selection, sourdough bread with apples. Breads are served with a salty white bean hummus spiked with a colorful cayenne.

Broders' Pasta Bar

Copy Link
Broders’ generous assortment of breads includes focaccia, ciabatta, and flatbread. The bread basket accompanies all their pasta dishes for a real carb-lovers delight. Pro tip: this selection is also included with takeout orders.

Cafe Levain

Copy Link
Café Levain sources its bread from the adjacent Turtle Bread Company , with bread choices including a crunchy baguette and dense dark walnut raisin bread to accompany the meal.

Blvd Kitchen & Bar

Copy Link
BLVD has the most extensive selection of breads on this list, but the bread service comes with a (totally worth it) $5 price tag. Seeded lavash, a thin cracker bread, walnut rye, and small loaf of white bread are all served with maple butter.

Lucia's To Go

Copy Link
Takeout at Lucia’s offers a choice of breads (the most memorable being the millet flax bread) to accompany salads and soups, along with rich and creamy Grassland butter packets. Lucia’s Wine Bar also offers a varying selection of house-made breads at an additional cost of $2.95.

The Gray House

Copy Link
The bread plate at the Gray House serves up a bounty of not only bread, but also olives, spiced nuts, and homemade cheese-its and crackers. The bread itself comes from Patisserie 46, some of the crunchiest-crusted, softest-centered stuff around.

The Bachelor Farmer

Copy Link
The Bachelor Farmer’s wafer-thin Scandinavian flatbread, served with decadent butter, salt, and radishes comes complimentary with all meals. Plus, popovers are available for a charge and come with creamy honey-infused butter.

Heartland

Copy Link
At Heartland, one thick, hearty roll is accompanied by Hope Creamery butter. The bread selection changes, but it’s always a heavy bread with a chewy, satisfying crust, such as a whole-grain, whole-wheat bread chock-full of earthy walnuts. .
