Temecula Eats: Great Harvest Bread Co.
There aren't many things greater than the simple pleasure of freshly baked bread. Whether it's the warmth, the smell, or just the taste; homemade bread is an unforgettable experience.
Now imagine applying this experience to a restaraunt, Great Harvest Bread Co. is a US chain that begain in the late 70s, their mission? To live loose and generous while making excellent food. That's editorializing a bit, but hopefully you get the picture.
The only chain near Temecula is off of Rancho California, and generally gets crowded around standard eating hours. But it is without a doubt worth the wait for an excellent sandwhich. Although a tad pricy when comparing to sandwhiches of similar size, the meal provided is generally more than filling for a lunch portion, (especially when you get a free sample of bread in the line). For a peek at their menu, click here, but I reccomend the California Cobb, for the perfect blend of classic california flavors.
My only qualm about the restaruant is it's a little confusing to order. Obviously it's easy to tell what the sandwhiches are, but it isn't very clear what's in them. Personally, I feel like there isn't enough information presented on the rather large chalkboard hanging above the cash register, but that seems to just be my opinion. If you trust me enough, I suggest you look at what you want online, and then pick your bread when you get into the store (don't be afraid to ask for suggestions).
Overall Great Bread makes a mean sandwhich and some delicious bread, and it's definitely worth checking out if you're in the mood for either.
