Merridee's Breadbasket

Merridee McCray, the founder of Merridee’s Breadbasket, grew up baking breads, pies and sweets from scratch with her mother. It was a tradition passed on to her by her grandmother, Anna Maria Faust, who once served as head cook for the Pillsbury family. When Merridee passed away in 1993, Jim Kreider bought Merridee’s Breadbasket. Today, Jim and his exceptional team are still making everything from scratch, creating products that not only have a great taste, but are nutritional as well. Merridee’s features a variety of baked goods, homemade soups, quiches and fresh salads.

    We missed breakfast so we ordered the quiche & they were almost out of that too. Lots of yummy looking pastries. You stand in line, then order food, are given a number & then you look for a table. I'd go back for bread or pastries but not for lunch.

    Excellent food but ...bought 9 cookies and when i saw how clerk was shoving them into one bag I politely asked her to use two bags so cookies wouldnt break. She continued shoving and I politely said, please dont break the cookies. She finished shoving and glibly replied, I wont break them. Sadly most of the cookies were broken so was not able to use them for guest party dessert. Shame on me for not insisting! Shame on the management for not properly training their employees. Will go back again but will insist on better handling of baked goods. Cassidy was the clerk that shoved cookies into one bag. Also not sure if anyone at the restaurant reads these reviews because all the responses are the same.

    Good freshly made breakfast and fresh fruit. They also have some speciality blends for coffee. Can't go wrong with anything.
