Bread Garden in Atlanta
The Bread Garden In Morningside: Atlanta Sub & Sandwich Tour #15Posted by Foodie Buddha on July 24, 2009
Slowly, but surely, we eek along. Some four months after my first sub tour pit stop, I find we are just now passing the 3/4 flag. You know what they say … time flies when you are having fun. Yesterday’s meal found me all alone at the Bread Garden. Tucked away on Amsterdam Walk near Morningside/Lenox Park, the Bread Garden has long had a reputation for some of the best breads in the city.
Even if you show up without any knowledge of their reputation, you’d soon learn of the importance that grains play here: a basket of baguettes usually adorns the door. So while the exterior appearance of the Bread Garden is as Plain Jane as it comes; the interior is home to a variety of freshly baked bread and freshly made goodies.
Before I get on with the details, I would be remiss if I did not at least mention something. Many have noted that the place is owned an operated by a short-tempered woman. While I’ve never met her, talked with her, or been put in front of her during one of my handful of visits to BG, I’ve heard her more than a few times. While the woman behind the counter yesterday was as delightful as they come, the stress of the audio soundtrack did result in me taking my food somewhere else. Take that as you will … it doesn’t factor in the score here and I don’t even know her name.
Alright … on with the goods:Sandwich 1: Italian Sub
Ingredients: turkey, ham, salami, Italian provolone, spicy onion/pepper marinade, pesto, tomato, & lettuce on a Baguette
Severed up on a crunchy baguette, I had high hopes for this sandwich. Visually, the colors were intense and the bread looked very appealing. Initial bites of the sandwich were very good. While the meats and cheese did not blow me away, I found them good enough to sustain my interest. The salami was thin yet fatty, the turkey was roasted and reasonably moist, and the ham had that fatty slickness to it that one would expect.
As I continued through my half (by now I had a lunch buddy), I focused on the baguette. While it is difficult to truly appreciate the flavor of a bread once it has been slapped across the face with some condiments, the texture was most certainly noticeable. It crunched and then tore, as most good baguettes will. Meanwhile, nothing in the interior prevented my teeth from meeting nicely in the middle.

Census shows black population plummeting in last decade in S.F.
It's a city that prides itself on tolerance and has the nation's most prominent black mayor.
Yet San Francisco's African American population declined faster than in any major U.S. city in the 1990s, a Chronicle analysis of 2000 Census data shows.
The city lost more than 1 i.... 'No. When people do a little better, they say, 'I'm outta here.' '
Maxwell said San Francisco stands to lose an integral part of its personality unless it does more to retain its black population.
'We need to remember what made San Francisco great,' she said. 'With any boom that comes, there's always a bust. We need some good long-range planning to encourage people to stay here.'
