Way way more salt in their bread, e.g. Spelt Bread than is needed or wanted. 3 times more than another spelt I like from European Breads Bakery. Talk about hidden salt in foods probably to mask the lack of flavor elsewhere in the recipe. Avoid!
Awesome bread! – I eat a LOT of bread, and Old Mill's Honey Wheat had the best consistency and flavor of any bread I have ever tasted. Good job.
Makes the best toast! – The Honey Wheat (I think that's what it's called...) loaf makes the best toast! I buy it at either Costco or PCC and it freezes great. It's a little pricy but worth it. It has a nice chewiness and moistness.
Great Bread – I have never been to their location, but I buy their bread at PCC and Costco, and it is awesome bread. It is in a class by itself. I think the most comparable is the bread at Honey Bear Bakery, but frankly, I like Old Mill bread better. We buy their Honey Whole Wheat every week, and eat every last piece.
Don't trust the hygiene! – Chaotic environment. People in and out from the street and cars pulling up often dropping off kids or even worse, getting out leaving their kids in the car. I assume there are three to four people that work there but on an average day, there are at least 20 friends and/or family members stopping by. Sometimes fighting, often loud music from their cars at all hours of the night. Kids climbing on the baking racks. I love kids but they are not known for having booger-free hands. Unable to communicate with "staff" if you can figure out which ones they are. None of them speak english evidently.
