Kneaded Bread Recommendations?

Kneaded Bread is terrific overall but are there any must try breads that they make? I am hoping to avoid eating my way through every offering they have (as tempting as that may be...).

So far I have tried :

ciabatta (phenomenal),
multi-grain loaf (very good but not blown away),
chocolate brioche (outstanding),
jelly brioche (good),
almond croissant (good),
brownie (very good)
scone (good).

  1. From your list your taste seems to run a bit sweeter than our household's, but here is what we tend to get:

    Their rye bread
    Cranberry pecan
    Onion poppyseed.

    I am particularly fond of the first two: quite dense and chewy.

    1. Our family favorite is the aged provolone bread. Love the brioche's too (but you already have those) and the donuts.

        I haven't been for a while, but I second the provolone as a favorite.

          Third, fourth and fifth on the provolone. Love it. Not to repeat any of the above, would add the onion rolls and, this time of year, their special holiday bread with nuts and dried fruit.

      2. another vote for cranberry pecan, i also really like the jelly brioche for what it is, would still prefer a good jelly doughnut though , anyone know of such a thing, my goto is galloways but there must be better (sorry to hi-jack this thread)

        1. Aside from the ones already mentioned (the provalone loaf) be sure to try the Rosemary olive bread, and if you are in the mood, the cinnamon raisin bread is outstanding too. Thickly sliced and toasted, it's a real treat.

          Also, try the sticky buns, pumpernickel, and almond croissants...

            Thanks everyone. I am a vegetarian so the provolone bread is not in the cards....will try the rest...

            1. re: gurud

              Just enjoyed the honey raisin scones this week. Very tasty w/ or w/out butter and jam.

                1. re: intrepid

                  Absolutely everything that they bake (or make) there is amazing!

          2. I agree the provolone bread is yummy (heat it up then serve it with dinner or lunch)
            Here's a tip, get the cinnamon sugar loaf and make french toast with it, you'll thank me later! (not sure if eggs are on our diet, if not try the bread toasted with butter!)

            Also agree on the Challah.
