Kneaders Bakery and Café gives the feel of that old style Neighborhood where family and friends gather for that comfort aroma of warm, fresh-baked breads and pastries. When we first walked in, it was buzzing with patrons everywhere. There was no chair left vacant and a line nearly out the door. We arrived at the height of lunch hour and waited several minutes to find a vacant table. This is always a good sign that there is good eating happening.
Their menu boasts a variety of choices, from the freshest sandwiches, gourmet salads, hearty soups, homemade pastries and a variety of European Breads, not to leave out the vegan. They are also known for their amazing Breakfast menu that we have yet to try. We can’t wait to try the “Chunky Cinnamon French Toast”! Just the name of this morning delight leaves ones mouth watering.
The décor lined shelves and walls of quotes, themed Holiday décor, and useful household items to purchase, are displayed like only a woman can do. This is where we met Carla who owns the Meridian Kneaders with her hubby. We felt like we were chatting with an old friend. Carla is so personable and concerned that we were enjoying our lunch. It’s that personal touch that is bringing patrons back time and time again.
Kneaders is perfect for lunch with friends or family and caters great to children, with a children’s menu with a healthy variety of foods. The atmosphere was quaint, though noisy. But it was surely a place we will be visiting again and again!
