Prairie Mill Bread Co. - Edmonton

It was nice to see a bit of press for this place in yesterday's Edmonton Journal. I've been shopping there since it opened before xmas, and really want it to succeed.

Owner (Owen) mills the organic grains (grown near Thorsby) in store, and makes a variety of breads. I've tried most, all are good, but the best has to be the 9 grain sourdough. They also make a very good banana loaf, and wonderful oatmeal cookies. It is a bit pricey - loaf of bread is close to 6 bucks, but oaves are 2 1/2 pounds of a good heavy dense bread. Not the type of thing you want for kids lunches, for example, but if you just like eating bread as is (or it makes incredible toast), this stuff is great.

Only thing I haven't been completely thrilled with is the buns, which are a bit heavy.

Nice perks: a buy 12, get one loaf free card, and (even better) when you go it, Owen will cut you a slice of bread that you can slather with real butter and eat while you chat with him and make your choices.

It is in the plaza on the southwest corner of 23 ave and rabbit hill rd.
