Outside the new House of Bread.

What a February it has been so far. First off, who cares if Punxsutawney Phil say there is six more weeks of winter? The South’s own Beauregard Lee in Georgia says spring is on the way! To celebrate, on February 2, we had a blast at my “Old Alabama Town Revue.” That same night the Cloverdale Playhouse premiered its first production, “The Gin Game.” I attended the second night — Friday night. Folks, it is fabulous. It finishes its run this weekend, and there are not many tickets left — so hurry up and call 262-1530 to reserve your tickets now.

But that’s not all in the big-time wonderful news department. A new restaurant/ bakery just opened in Old Alabama Town. The House of Bread at 317 North Hull Street has its grand opening this Saturday from 11-3. Come sample delicious food and meet proprietor Paul Williams.

The House of Bread serves a sumptuous lunch menu of sandwiches, soups and salads every day , and offers amazing in-house baked sweets like right-out-of-the-oven-home-style cinnamon rolls. Talk to Mr. Williams about catering your next event, be it large or small, formal, military, business, or just for fun.

Aiming to please, the House of Bread will travel to the party site or accommodations are available at the restaurant’s beautiful historic setting. And more fun news: Mr. Williams has big plans for enjoying Valentines Day. The lunch special will be grilled chicken and green beans with garlic mashed potatoes and a homemade roll. Then, on to the serious part of Valentines Day. Desserts include a romantic just-for-two special strawberry cream cheese cake topped with chocolate covered strawberries plus strawberry cupcakes with cream cheese icing and strawberry jam inside. If you are not already in love, fall quickly so you can share one of those cakes!

For your valentine?

So there is a lot to smile about: the promise a long beautiful spring¸ a new successful community theater, a new restaurant, and a choice of romantic mega delicious Valentine yummies. It’s good living in Midtown!

    Went by the establishment but the building is up for rent. Shame because I tasted their products last yr.

      Not surprised, but disappointed that they couldn’t succeed. When I asked for lemon for my iced tea, they brought me a little container of lemon juice–the kind of thing hospitals use to dispense pills.

      However, I saw their booth at last weekend’s Home and Garden Show. Maybe they have moved.

    I just drove by the House of Bread building. There’s a “For Rent” sign outside. Sad.
