Ross Bread in Ridgefield, CT

Stopped into Ross Bread in Ridgefield for the first time today. YUM!

I purchased a loaf of their honey wheat bread and a loaf of the caraway rye, and sampled both when I got home. The honey wheat is delightful: soft, chewy, delicious. The rye has a coarser texture and a distinct (positive) taste with a crunchy rye crust.

I also bought two pieces of focaccia: one w/ sundried tomato and black olives the other with sliced potato and rosemary on top. Both were great.

Prices were reasonable for homemade breads ($5 for one loaf, $4.50 for the other, $1.75 for the focaccia) but not something I'll buy every week. Baguettes looked great and at $3.00 apiece might be a more regular purchase (although I'm not sure I can get in and out without buying something else. Can't wait to go back and try the challah, which I saw on their website but not in the store today (maybe Friday only?).

Want to stay up to date with this post?
