Atlanta Bread, Toms River NJ – Restaurant Review – #ReviewCrew

Yesterday the chief cook and bottle washer (that’s me) decided to take a break. I did not want formal dining, a social experience best shared. What I wanted was comfy-cosy, where smells and taste dominate not pricing. Phooey to fast food! I remember growing up in the city where corner delis were special; where mom and pop bakeries excelled. Fresh? Homemade? Good luck finding taste-tempting stuff. Today’s casual dining too often means out-sourced breads, frozen desserts, pre-packaged treats. Me, I remain committed to good bakery. It makes or breaks eating.

I search and come up with an idea: Atlanta Bread Company.

The storefront of the Toms River Atlanta Bread location doesn’t signal chain. Instead it has a small town intimate feel, pleasantly surprising considering how Toms River has grown over the years.

Service is excellent. Soups, sandwiches, salads, desserts, mmm good! Choices abound.

I opt for a Half and Half–a panini (New York hot pastrami on rye with swiss and spicy mustard) and butternut squash soup. Extra touches like a slab of sourdough and a dollop of sour cream show me this place values and works to please its customers.

I sip some iced coffee and savor my warm bread pudding (at least here I know all the ingredients are fresh) as I decide what I am bringing home. Everything tempts–danish, muffins, croissants, rolls, bagels, breads–because no day old here as everything is fresh.

Looks like a nice place to just relax and enjoy a quick bite. When I saw Atlanta Bread, I automatically thought, Atlanta, until I saw the NJ. I’ve never heard of it before now.

This place looks great! My son would love those sandwiches!

I love restaurants like this one that serve comfort food. I like that it is close enough where I can head there for a bite to eat to try some of these dishes for myself.

It”s been at least a decade since I ate at the one on 130. It’s very similar to Panera.
