Great Harvest Bread comes to South Pasadena
The location doesn't look like much right now, but a new location of the franchise Great Harvest Bread Company is in the works in this historic South Pasadena building at the corner of Mission and Diamond Sts. I'm always complaining that there's way too many cupcakes and sweets and not enough bread bakeries, so this is welcome news. The franchise part seems a little worrisome, but the reviews on Chowhound for their other locations seem pretty good. Also, it's not a chain -- it's a local couple that owns it and bought a franchise. Apparently they stone-grind the wheat every morning, and make white, whole wheat, nut, fruit and savory breads as well as scones, cookies and sandwiches and Peet's Coffee. They're predicting a late spring opening, so I'm thinking...August?
