If you know anything about us, we love to rave about 1748 Bakehouse. True, it’s a good options for early breakfast, but why not turn it into a lunch date? The best meal on the menu? We can’t choose, but we’ll give you some choices. 

Salads and sandwiches are the main meals and we like the sourdough panzanella salad. The croutons are made from sourdough bread, and the salad is a mix of burrata, peppers, cucumber, onion, tomatoes, local greens, and pesto dressing! We pair this with the pastrami sandwich. The sauerkraut is delicious!
