Once a week, or at the most every other week, my daughter and I go to Great Harvest Bread Company in Upper Arlington.  

Their bread is fantastic. The secret to their bread is that they mill their whole wheat flour at their store, which makes their bread really fresh. A loaf can sit out on the counter for two weeks and still taste great. 

I buy their Honey Whole Wheat. The bread only has five ingredients in it – whole wheat flour, water, honey, yeast, and salt. The bread is great for toast and grilled cheese. We also use it for French toast on the weekends.

I have also tried other breads there, such as the Cinnamon Chip Whole Wheat bread, and they are all very good. They also sell great brownies and cookies. Basically, anything that comes from their store is terrific! 

Visiting the store is always a pleasant experience. All the employees are helpful and polite. Every time I’ve walked in the store I have been offered a slice of bread from their sample board. The slices are generous, and the munchkin loves getting to eat the slices slathered with butter as we run errands. The UA store also has a basket of toys on the floor to occupy her while I pay for our bread. Sometimes it is a little hard tearing her out of the store. 

They don’t make every kind of bread every day. Although, they do have the Honey Whole Wheat every day. Their schedule of breads changes monthly. You can pick up a copy in the store or at their website
