The bread here is phenomenally good. It's baked fresh and sells out, but if you have your heart set on, say , Dakota Bread, the folks there will propose a close alternative, which you might even like better. I get a few loaves and freeze what won't be soon eaten.

We love great harvest. However this location doesn't have a great selection of breads and the staff isn't as friendly and helpful as other locations.

This is a locally run outlet of a larger chain of bakeries. The bread and baked goods are set to a high standard, but each local baker has some room to play with their recipes and offer some unique items. There's coffee and a place to sit - or just bag up your goodies to take home. There is always... More

The specials for the day are available to sample, with butter. Freshly brewed Peets coffee is ready for you. The varieties change daily, with additional items for the holidays.

Support your local Break & Pastry makers! They offer excellent produce, smells great, friendly service, organic type foods. A bit on the expensive side, but well worth the price. Their spinach and feta cheese break is wonderful!

Food: While I was in town for a conference, I got a tip that Great Harvest had the best pastries. I was not disappointed. When you walk in the door, you are overwhelmed with the aroma of fresh baked bread - no processed smell here. I tried both the cinnamon rolls and the scones, both were excellent. The menu included...

I really like the lemon blueberry tea cake. The chocolate chip oatmeal cookies are wonderful. Great place for bread!

What a find! The Great Harvest Bread Company in Chapel Hill made some of the most delicious homemade bread I've ever had. Unlike a lot of places in town, their dough is fresh, and not frozen. Try a load of of Honey Wheat or White - or any of the varieties thee sell. And the scones and marvelous as well.... More
