Give Thanks bakery in Rochester MI

IndyGirl Sep 6, 2008 06:50 AM

I finally discovered it.

I bought two loaves of bread and haven't tried them yet.

But I am sooooooo impressed by the espresso and the beautiful little cranberry pecan scones I picked up for breakfast on this gorgeous morning.

The scones are little flaky buttery cakes of perfection--not a hint of toughness, and are teeming with remarkably well-distributed bits of cranberry and pecan.

I am so glad I read about this place here. I would never have ventured inside if I hadn't, and it's only five minutes from my house. I am thrilled, THRILLED to have a place like this nearby!

    Good stuff! Downtown Detroit frequenters can get their pastries (can't remember about the bread, but it's possible) at Zaccaro's grocery on Woodward.

      Wow, and what a day to find it! We were in downtown Rochester today and it was packed with the art fair, so I'm happy you found your way there. I bought a raspberry pie from the lady at the farmers market today that I can't wait to have for dinner tonight. They are great pies, not too sweet. Next week I'm going to buy one of her peach pies. Can't buy too many or I'll eat them all!

        I got there early--around 8:45, right after I visited the Farmer's Market. Just a beautiful day to be out and about. Finding GTB definitely made my month as far as food discoveries are concerned. Tomorrow I am going to get some good havarti cheese at that awesome new Whole Foods and make a roasted veggie sandwich with that bread and my farmer's market zucchini, onions, and eggplant. I can't wait!

          That new WF do rock, don't it!

          On topic, I'm glad you found the treasure that is Give Thanks. I wish I could get there more often--everything I've gotten there has been wonderful.

            That sandwich sounds wonderful! What time is lunch? :) We had some of the best corn of the season last night and the pie was delish. Yesterday I asked a couple of the vendors if they would consider growing arugula next year...then the market would be perfect.
