The Bread Garden at Park Royal
notes by Dad
Each member of our family has a weird eating habit. My wife, Mary,
has eaten a muffin with a coffee for lunch for the past ten years.
Nathe won't let the taste of meat anywhere near his lips, and Jen loves
meat. So what we do sometimes is order them a hotdog--Jen eats the
wiener and Nathan dines on the bun. Myself, I like eggs, but if I
can't get eggs, a ham and cheese sandwich will do. I used to hate
eating out. What an ordeal! But I guess there must be more
families like us, because I've noticed more and more places popping up
that cater to our diverse tastes. One of these is The Bread Garden.
Age group: All ages. The Bread Garden has a large supply of high chairs.
Reasonably priced. Sandwiches cost about $4.50, and so do their shepherd's
pie, wraps, and one-bowl meals. The four of us typically spend about
$20 for lunch.
: I used to hate The Bread Garden; it was too formula. All the shepherds pies have mashed potatoes swirled in exactly the same pattern along the edge of the casserole. The sandwiches come in a cellophane wrapper and the chilli is microwaved. If you can get past these, you'll find the food tastes pretty good.
Details: The Bread Garden has about half a dozen locations: Park Royal ((604) 925-0181) and Park & Tilford Malls on the North Shore, Metrotown in Burnaby, south Granville Street, and Denman Street in downtown Vancouver. It works on a number system: you order your food at the counter and servers will deliver it to your table. Or, if you just want a coffee or baked good, they have an express line-up as well.
