Our friends have been raving about the Red Truck bakery for some time. It’s in a tiny little town out in the country on the way to Shenandoah.
A little internet research revealed that this bakery has garnered so much attention from food critics since it opened.
One or two of them even call it one of the best small bakeries in the country. In the whole country?
So, of course we had to go.
Actually, we did check it out a few months back on our way from Shenandoah, but got there after lunch and virtually everything was sold out. (virtually, as in, I think we got the last muffin) A good sign, right?
We finally made it back early this past weekend and found plenty of abundance in the bakery case this time.
Our mission: breakfast.
We were actually on our way to the Barrel Oak Winery after this for breakfast #2, so we went kind of light with our order.
We got the bacon egg biscuit sandwich, which just looks so pretty sitting there on the counter and a cheese and sausage croissant.
It was a lovely sunny day, so we just sat outside on the front step with Quinn.
The sign says it’s the best coffee on the east coast, and it was pretty good…
The final verdict? I enjoyed our food and I think we’ll go back when we’re in the area. I don’t know that I was completely blown away by it though.
Maybe we should’ve ordered some sweet things too, but as it was right after New Years, I was trying to cut down on that for a little while. Next time, I think we’ll order a gigantic cinnamon bun and they have this dessert called Moonshine Cake that I’m really curious about.
The little restaurant itself is cute as can be though and you can’t beat the location in a rural town with one main street that runs about a block.
