With the winter weather fully announcing itself in metro Detroit this week, a good way to stay warm on a cold day is by having a hot, fresh meal. A bowl of soup, a hot grilled cheese sandwich, and of course, warm, fresh baked bread can hit the spot on a bitterly cold winter day. Lucky for you, there are numerous bakeries in the metro Detroit area that will help you find a freshly baked loaf of bread to go perfectly with any meal during the winter months.

Avalon International Breads

With numerous locations in Detroit and another in Ann Arbor, there are plenty of places for you to enjoy a warm loaf of bread from Avalon International Breads. Their daily fresh breads range from traditional sourdough, wheat, and Italian loaves, to more exotic loaves like Leelanau Cherry Walnut, Greektown Olive Bread, and Second Avenue Scallion Dill. Their 100% organic flour and wide range of freshly baked loaves of bread will hit the spot on a cold winter day.
