In the bread district

Bob's Red Mill is a real Milwaukie institution these days. Although the flagship "whole grain store" opened in 2008, I had yet to visit; we stopped by this morning, and -- my oh my! -- it was a real treat. Lots of alternative grains, "wonder cocoa," great little kitchen implements, and a nice cafe on site. Ginger kombucha and a vegan lemon poppyseed muffin? Yes, please.

To complete your tour of the town's Bread District, you can stop by the "world breadquarters" of Dave's Killer Bread across the way; the Sin Dawg seeded cinnamon rolls are gooey, dense, delicious.
