Alpharetta: Breadtime

Breadtime seems unassuming at a glance from Alpharetta Highway. But when I stepped in side I found a small, very complete and elegant European bakery and restaurant. The interior is casually elegant and the outside space is positively cute.

This is one of their pastry cases. They also display meats, loaves of bread, and a very nice selection of wines. Their menu includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They of course feature items like sandwiches that show off their bread but they have a wide range of items.

I stopped by for a snack and found it impossible to stop at one item. The croissant was the perfect combination of crispy on the outside and buttery tender on the inside. The middle tore out of it in the most luscious way when I pulled on the tip. The apple strudel was excellent---this is a European-style pastry that isn't overloaded with sugar. (One of my pet peeves is that Americans put too much sugar in desserts. All that sugar hides the other flavors.) I also took home a half loaf of rye bread. It had a dense but very tender crumb and an excellent crust.
