Vidalia Bakery's Bread Cluster
This weekend we visited the lovely Ontario town of St. Jacobs. We hit the local outlet mall before heading to the downtown strip. After a stroll along the main street, some window shopping and a rest on a bench in the sun, we headed into a little bakery (at least it looked little from the outside) for a coffee and snack. Vidalia Bakery is much bigger on the inside than it seems, with lots of fresh bread and sweets even late on a Sunday afternoon. We opted to sample a cream puff and a lemon meringue tart along with the coffee. Delicious, and the perfect size to satisfy a sweet craving without breaking the caloric bank. All it took was a little bit of time at a picnic table in the sunshine and I’m officially excited for the arrival of patio season! I think there really is something about a small town bakery. And the “Bread cluster” we brought home, a combination of whole wheat, rye and egg bread, is definitely proof of that. It’s a creative way to bake, and perfect for a family with lots of different tastes.
