The Best Toast Ever? In Revestoke, B.C., of All Places

Mind-blowingly good "healthy bread" toast at La Baguette in Revelstoke, B.C.

Mind-blowingly good “healthy bread” toast at La Baguette in Revelstoke, B.C.

Passing through Revelstoke, I stop once again at La Baguette, my favourite bakery/cafe between Calgary and Vancouver. Heck, its breads may be better than anything I’ve found in those two cities. This time, I order the Healthy Bread, a sandwich of toasted, round bread with melted cream cheese or three-berry jam in the middle. No ordinary toast, this is a magical blend of kamut flour, flax, coconut and dates—wonderfully soft in the middle and slightly crunchy from the oat-flake topping. It’s mind-blowingly good, and at $3.50 a steal of a light breakfast deal. Who needs eggs and bacon?

Of course, I blow my savings on a $9 loaf of gluten-free bread, a gift for a g-f friend. The server attributes the premium to the high cost of the ingredients. But weighing in at three pounds, it’s still pretty good cost-per-weight value. And it’s no doorstop, but instead a surprisingly moist, chewy loaf, quite wonderful toasted, as my friend can attest after wolfing down three slices.

This gluten-free bread, from La Baguette in Revelstoke, is almost wonderfully dense enough to bend my wrist.

All this healthy baking is almost enough to get me on the g-f bandwagon. Nah. We just need more of the world’s bakers to follow La Baguette’s lead. My bar for lowly toast has just been substantially raised.
