I love this little local bakery which opened late last year. The owners are a young couple with a golden retriever - the bakery's namesake of course. Yesterday we decided to heck with all the moving/hiding stuff in readiness for carpet installers tomorrow morning......we were heading out of the house for some much needed walking in the fresh air, locating fresh photo ops, and fresh from the oven artisan breads!
My breakfast this morning.
The perfect food to start my day along with a mug of steaming coffee. I've been trying to stay away from bread the past few weeks and I miss it so, especially a slice of morning toast. This loaf was Yellow Dog's Fig & Walnut and is absolutely delicious....I admit to being guilty of crunching through not one but two slices!
Will have to try this granola next time.
Haven't given in to trying these sweet treats yet but
hear they are amazingly yummy!
Yellow Dog's baguettes are fabulous, I know that for a fact!
I love to see new small businesses making a go of it........especially young couples putting their hearts and souls into something they love deeply. Running a bakery/coffee shop is no small feat - making wonderful bread and pastries takes time, a lot of time. Seeing the tables and chairs both inside and filled to capacity yesterday afternoon, and a line at the counter waiting to be served, was exciting. Knowing there are great people out there, willing to keep up the old ways of feeding us healthy options of the 'staff of life', is truly heart warming.
Good luck and many thanks Tanya and Matt.
BTW - I did take lots of photos on our walk yesterday. It was warm, sunny, and a visit to the Arboretum, then a walk through downtown, had me snapping away and realizing Spring is definitely not far off. Will share some new scenes from around our city soon.
