File this under the “who knew?” category: In King of Prussia, just off Henderson Rd. (near Renaissance Blvd.), sits the commercial bakery and offices for Philly favorite breadmaker Le Bus. In addition, there’s an outlet store attached!
It’s almost strange to call this an “outlet,” because it’s much more than that. Almost all the bread has been cooked that day (day olds would be clearly marked), but instead is the result of overruns or bakery imperfections, which are still darn tasty. They serve breakfast (pastries, breakfast sandwiches, coffee), as well as lunch (salads and sandwiches), and carry just about all the breads that are made by the bakery.
Our favorites, of course, are those hamburger rolls. Are there any better? TJs in Paoli recently tried to replace these pillowy balls of doughy goodness with buns from another bakery, but had to go back due to customer outcry. They’re that good.
Really, all the Le Bus stuff is excellent, though it would be nice if they expanded their whole grain selection.
