Sometimes I want to bring French bread to work and I need it EARLY. I got 6 loaves this week at 7 am at Breadsmith and I was so disappointed. Even though they told me when I ordered it that it would be baked very early that am, it tasted to me like they baked it the day before then stored it in plastic bags overnight. It was so nasty that I suspect they may possibly have committed the grievous sin of putting it into the bags warm (a sin committed daily at Whole Paycheck).
Where would you go if you wanted really good French bread at 7 am? FYI---I live in Mac Groveland in St. Paul and work in downtown St. Paul.
