Though I don't always have it (shame on me), breakfast is probably my favorite meal of the day! Knead Bakeshop, which is perfect for breakfast, is located in Murray Hill. It's in between two other amazing local spots, Maple Street Biscuit Company and Bold Bean Coffee and it definitely fits right in!
There are several things I love about Knead. The location is intimate with a very welcoming ambiance. They have adorable white picnic tables that are used for community dining.
Their menu is pretty limited...
but I love that they offer pastries, breakfast, and lunch all of which are baked in house!
I saw some of my favorite pastries like monkey bread, chocolate croissants, muffins, and quiche! I was pretty excited!
The order numbers are fabulous! They feature iconic music artists with Prince being the best one, of course!
As for what I ordered, anyone who know me well, knows that I love bread! So croissants and biscuits are an absolute must for me!
This almond croissant was as amazing as it looks! It paired perfectly with my coffee. It may be a good thing that they don't open until 7am because I am already at work. If they opened any earlier, making a stop there every morning before work for an almond croissant and coffee could get my waistline in some trouble!
Their Bacon Cheddar Biscuit was recommended to me and I understand why! The biscuit is made with...you guessed it, bacon and cheddar and the sausage on the biscuit was so savory. The only thing you have to make sure to do is ask for your egg over hard if you're not into runny eggs like me. I didn't and my sandwich was full of runny egg yolk. It was still delish though!
On my most recent trip, I got the loaded croissant which came with a chewy croissant stuffed with sausage, egg, and cheese! So good! It sure beats the heck out of those chain restaurant breakfast sandwiches who we will NOT speak of here!
This sandwich was so good I had to show you two shots of it!
I definitely love Knead Bakeshop and need to make a trip back to try some of their lunch sandwiches like the Jamon Serrano and Ham and Brie. They also offer weekend brunch specials which I hear now includes mimosas! I am always down for that!
As always, thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful week!
