Who would have known it? A local bakery in Washougal, Washington owned by a family that I have known since I was in grad school. I have been driving past this bakery for weeks wanting to stop and check out what they have to offer.
Finally, last night after work I had the opportunity to stop by and was I happy that I did. When I came inside I was welcomed with a friendly greeting. One of the customers said that she recognized me and asked if I had went to Evergreen High School. We got to talking and come to find out we went to school together. At that point the manager said that he was a few years before us, but we may know his little sister. His "little" sister was one of my "little" sister's good friends in school.
A quick stop that should have been about 10 minutes ended up being an hour talking about old times. The assortment of goodies at the bakery is incredible and if you walk down the sidewalk to the actual restaurant, a glass case the size of a small car bursting with fresh baked, cinnamon rolls, breads, cookies, muffins, and a long list of treats too numerous to list.
I picked up some of the peanut butter chocolate chip, peanut butter, chocolate chip, gingersnap, and snicker doodle cookies. They are huge and you get a dozen for $7.00. The are amazing! I also bought some single serve sized loaves of sourdough bread hot and fresh from the oven as well as a variety of other single serving sized loaves of apple cinnamon and wheat bread.
The warm sourdough loaves were a terrific addition to our dinner last night and for a $1 a loaf -what a bargain. Larger sized loaves of bread range from $4.00-$4.25. If you have the time to drive down to Washougal to pick up some of the delectable baked goods...you will not be sorry. The prices are reasonable and it is always nice to support our hometown, homegrown businesses. Bon Appetite!
