absolutely delicious

I discovered this bakery last week, and I've already been back. It's definitely hidden away, with the entrance just off Gateway Blvd before you hit 63 Ave. Turn right at the lights before 63 Ave, then left in the parking lot and drive around to the white building in the back (see, it's hidden!).

Every bakery has a specialty, so the first time I visited I asked what theirs was; rye breads, sourdough breads, and pretzels. There weren't any pretzels when I went; they usually sell out before noon (and they bake a ton of them, apparently), but the girl said their jalapeno cheese sourdough was good. I'm a HUGE fan of jalapeno-anything, so I bought that and came home. It was a large loaf; it lasted an hour. It was absolutely delicious! So good, that I braved the snowy roads and went back for another loaf later in the week. I hit the jackpot because they had so few customers that there were tons of pretzels left at 3pm. I tried a regular pretzel and some of the buns, and they were both awesome. They were perfectly baked (browned outside, chewy inside), with just the right amount of salt on it; not to much, but enough that you got some with every bite. Of course I picked up another jalapeno cheese loaf as well.

They also have lots of different sweets for sale, but I'm trying (and succeeding at) cutting down the amount of sugar I consume, so I didn't buy any. It sure was tempting though!

It may be a bit hard to find, but trust me, it's worth it. I found all their prices to be extremely reasonable (the 9-10" loaf was $4.25, the pretzels were 80c, and the pretzel buns were about 60c). Definitely go check it out, and arrive early if you want the pretzels.
