New Year, New Look: Naborhood Bakery (and a cookie giveaway!)

Let’s be honest. I could show you the most gorgeous pictures imaginable of the newly-remodeled Naborhood Bakery at Gardner Village, but we all know they wouldn’t be the primary reason you’d visit. It’s this! The freshly-baked brilliance that makes resisting a trip to the bakery impossible.

The staff at Naborhood Bakery is up well before the sun daily, baking bread and desserts for their day's guests.

And you can get in on the action with their popular Frozen Dough Rolls. Learn more about them here

Win Cookies
Yes, cookies! In celebration of the bakery’s fresh look, they’re giving away a dozen fresh-made cookies. To enter, simply leave a comment on this post or email between now and Monday, Jan. 25. We’ll announce our cookie king or queen in next Wednesday’s post. 

**Note: To qualify, you must be 18 years or older and able to come to Gardner Village to claim your prize. Thanks!

The New ‘Do
Now, let’s get to that makeover unveiling, shall we? Like the Archibald’s Restaurant and CF Home updates we’ve enjoyed this month, the bakery’s new look is light, open and inviting. 

And also true to form, the lights are something special in this space. 

From ceiling to floor, the flooring is a light wood.

Now, focus your eyes on the center of the spectacular space and you’ll notice striking details, many of which come from and can be purchased at Gardner Village shops. 

Remember this ampersand from our Holiday Shopping Guide post? Looks pretty awesome in this space, don’t you think?

Isn’t the tile wall bright and beautiful? Add to that the pretty plate display from CF Home, and you have a dining space that offers the comfort and beauty of home. 

I think the first thing I noticed when I visited were these interesting tables. Aren’t they unique and cool? I’ve enjoyed many meals on them already and can assure you they’re as comfortable as they are eye catching.

It’s impossible to narrow in on a single remodel favorite. I love the entire look so much. But I can share my favorite item off of their new Naborhood Bakery menu. It’s the Margherita Pizza. Oh. My. Word. It is good! Truth be told, everything on the menu is fresh and delicious. There’s no way you’ll go wrong in your order. But that pizza… Oh, that pizza…. 

You’ll have to excuse me. My stomach is rumbling and that pizza is calling my name. I hope to see you back here next week, when we announce our cookie winner and take an inside look at the popular Cookie College going on now through the end of February at the bakery. It’s one form of higher education that won’t leave you in debt and even the youngest of scholars can attend. Oh, and did I mention it includes freshly-baked cookies?! Yeah, ‘nuff said. lol
