One Fantastic Bakery, but Only Two Locations
Beyond Bread is a local Tucson bakery we found while staying here a few years ago. At the time we were house hunting and just came across it one morning. They're celebrating ten years of business, and I can certainly understand why they're so successful. The bread is fantastic. That's all I can say. When you walk in, there's usually a line of customers waiting to place orders for breads or something from the menu, which includes breakfast items, sandwiches, soup and salads. While waiting, you can sample all the bread and butter you want. I must admit we've joked about getting cups of their delicious coffee and some of the sample breads and calling that a meal. Yes, it's that good. I'm especially fond of the multi-grain bread. We've tried several of the sandwiches, but we really enjoy the curry chicken salad inside whole-wheat pita bread. There's way more than enough for two, so we just split it and we never walk out hungry. There are two locations, one at the Monterey Shopping Center at Wilmot and Speedway and another on Campbell Avenue. Haven't been to Campbell yet, but when in the neighborhood we'll stop by. We only hope they'll open another store down our way in Vail, but that's not too likely. That's okay because it's usually near something we're doing in town anyway.
