It seems there may be changes afoot at Simply Bread. I stopped in this afternoon and spoke to the woman (didn't get her name) behind the counter about their future...she mentioned that they owned the property S to McDowell and are possibly planning an outdoor/cafe type of setup, and right now they're focused on that expansion. She said they may tinker with the retail hours, as they can't open the place up earlier enough to accommodate everyone. Apparently they're also going to expand more into pastry, and right now they're selling chocolate chip cookies ($0.75/ea) with plans for others. The cookies, btw, are delicious.
That's about all I know, from my short conversation today. Anyone have any more info or some inside scoop?
So is a rivalry brewing? I doubt it, but this certainly isn't a bad thing.
