Day 189: Bite into a pie at the Bread Wagon

9 Jul

The day I stumbled upon the Bread Wagon was a glorious one indeed. This Amish bakery sits next to a gas station off Highway 319, just outside Thomasville, Ga. It is one of those roadside joints you pass many times and think “I should go in there….” but almost never do. Many of the ingredients used are shipped in from Amish country in Ohio. The young women who work the cash register wear the traditionally Amish handmade dresses, though I wasn’t sure if that was some Amish shtick or they really were Amish. The Bread Wagon sells cakes, pies, lemon bars, brownies, breads, cinnamon rolls, cookies pumpkin cream cheese rolls and even some sausages, jams and piemiento cheese. Everything is made right there and tastes deliciously moist and fresh. I tried their lemon cream cheese bars which were so delicious I inhaled three of them in less than five minutes. It’s impossible to step into the Bread Wagon and not walk out with something in your hands. I usually stop by on my way to Atlanta or if I find myself in Thomasville.

Address: Highway 19, three miles north of Thomasville

    Stopped by this place yesterday, after reading about it here…
    Bought a loaf of sourdough bread (okay light bread, but no sign of anything sourdough about it), a mini-loaf of cinnamon bread because it smelled good ( didn’t taste anything close to as good as it smelled), and a mini coconut cream pie (completely disgusting, tasting of phony coconut flavoring with a cardboard crust). Won’t be returning to this phony place.

    I’ve never tried anything but the cakes there, which are great for store-bought. The traditional vanilla cake with chocolate frosting is my personal favorite. One whole cake is HUGE, it’s a good way to feed large groups for a reasonable price if you don’t have time to make your own.

    They aren’t Amish. They are Mennonites. I only know this because their community is about a mile from my grandmother’s house in Meigs, GA. 🙂 Super, super nice people and their homemade food is the BEST! 🙂
