MUST EATS at THE BIG SKY BREAD CO.
OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES:
These are our favorite item on the menu. Completely whole grain cookies with generous amounts of chocolate chips throughout. They are not cheap, but they are absolutely amazing.
The cinnamon rolls are fantastic and what makes it is the icing on top. So rich, so delicious, if you add butter it might just cause an explosion.
BLUEBERRY CRUMBLE CUPCAKES:
The soft, light topping, the crumbles that bare way to the blueberries inside the muffin. All this goodness in paper cupcake holder. Have you ever taken a bite of something so rich, your voice gets lower? Yeah, that’s this one ….
An Italian classic ! In upstate New York they would call this a pepperoni roll, but the Big Sky Bread company calls it “pizza bread.” It is one of the best pepperoni rolls we have ever eaten. It is pretty much a bread with pepperoni baked into it. This will fill you up quickly,
The croissants are fresh and delicious. Try them with butter and place in the microwave for 15 seconds.. WOW ! Melts in your mouth.
WHITE, SLICED BREAD:
Yes, just their plain, white sliced bread is great. It makes great toast or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. A sturdy bread to hold up to those cold cuts and cheeses and mustards too !
TOMATO BASIL SOUP:
The Big Sky Bread Co. usually has a couple of soups on hand. We think the best one is the Tomato Basil Soup.
TUNA SALAD SANDWICH:
Of the various sandwiches, we found the Tuna to be the best, with Turkey a close second. The tuna salad is fresh and served cold. It is the perfect size for a light lunch.
HONORABLE MENTION: The CHALLAH Bread. So soft. Heat it up 20 seconds, and butter this up with some jelly. Challah, if you hear me !
The owners tell us the pretzel knots are the biggest selling item,
They were good, but we loved so many other items more.
Check out their menu for yourself. The staff is very attentive and will help you find anything you need.
The Big Sky Bread Company, a little gem that often gets overlooked. Discover or rediscover their fantastic items. We do not accept responsibility for cookie addictions from this point forward.
