Thanks to my sister, Emily, for this review. A delightful little bakery can be found over near Vandalia, just north of town. Located one mile off of M-60, the Farm House Bakery has many treats to offer.
Open Thursday through Saturday, the Farm House has an array of delectable treats to offer. Starting at seven a.m., breakfast is served with surprising efficiency.
On a recent visit, my sister and I received our food quite quickly. We both ordered the Farmerâ€™s Wife, which consists of their wonderful egg casserole; choice of French Toast, pancakes (both served with pure maple syrup) or biscuits and gravy; choice of meat (a mild sausage or bacon); and choice of pastry (cinnamon roll, glazed donut, bismark, apple fritter, or muffin). Each breakfast also comes with a dish of fresh fruit (grapes, melon, and pineapple). Beverages include milk, juice, and great coffee.
My sister and I both chose the biscuits and gravy and sausage, but she went with a cinnamon roll while I chose the blueberry muffin. Both are excellent choices and come icing drizzled all over the top. The muffin was FULL of blueberries, just the way I prefer.
I personally have tried the apple fritter, cinnamon roll, and blueberry muffin. (The bakery happens to be conveniently located on my way to work.) There are other varieties of muffins left to sample. Also available are fresh-baked breads and pies, as well as other sweet goods.
The Farm House also serves lunch. They offer sandwiches, regular and buffalo burgers and subs.
If you plan on going on a Saturday morning, go early in order to find a table. Hopefully you arenâ€™t shy as tables are sometimes shared by more than one party. If you do have to wait, it will be well-worth the time.
The Farm House Bakery is open Thursday through Saturday, from 7 am to 4 pm, and is located at 59573 White Temple Road.
