Tellico Grains Bakery – A Unique Bakery in the Mountains!
We are foodies and always anxious to find new sources of
food, or in this case, sweets. I read a
little about Tellico Grains Bakery, in Tellico Plains, Tennessee and had to
find out more. They have a website,
which makes things a whole lot easier for all of us!
Here it is!
Once I found out they make all kinds of breads and sweet
treats I knew we had to do a road trip.
They also make sandwiches so we planned our arrival a little before
lunch time. We wanted to beat the crowd.
Tellico Plains is up in the mountains, and I am not a fan
of twisting and winding roads.
Thankfully, the ride from our house to the bakery was a pleasant one for
sure. The scenery was beautiful as we
headed toward the mountains. When my
ears started to clog I knew we were going up up up!
It was worth the ride.
The Tellico Grains Bakery put a smile on our faces that day for
sure. My husband had a Reuben sandwich
while I drooled over the display cases containing Cherry Turnovers, Apple
Turnovers, lots of Chocolate things, all kinds of Breads and I can’t remember
everything but you get the message.
Needless to say we brought home turnovers, bread and a
cinnamon roll and wished we had bought more.
We froze the turnovers and when we finally ate them they tasted fresh
baked. We did manage to dig into the
crusty loaf of bread with dinner that night.
Turnovers and Cinnamon Bun!
If you go to their website *here* and click on the tab
for bread you will see which bread they bake on which days of the week.Then click on the pastry tab for a list of
the pastry varieties. Once you visit their website you can find out times they
are open and other information.
If you live in Athens, Sweetwater, Madisonville or that
general vicinity you just need to take Highway 68 east and you will run right
into Tellico Plains.
Anyone not familiar
with the area just use your GPS or read the directions *here*. If you do head in that direction, be sure to take your
camera with you. I would hate for you to
miss out on some beautiful photos of the mountains. If you continue east on 68 it will eventually
take you over to Highway 64 in Ducktown, TN, right over the border from
McCayesville, GA, which I understand is a beautiful ride.
Doesn't this bread look good?
One way or another I think you will enjoy the scenery and
the delicious breads and pastries. Now that I am telling you all about Tellico
Grains my mouth is watering and I think it is time for another road trip to
Tellico Grains Bakery in Tellico Plains, Tennessee.
