Merridee's bread repertoire includes egg bread, oatmeal bread, Viking bread (wholegrains, wheatberries, flaxseed, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds), French bread, raisin-cinnamon, and cinnamon streusel. The array of cakes, braids, cookies, and braids is staggering.

The breakfast pastries at Merridee's include such exotica as coconut rolls, cinnamon raisin biscuits, and chocolate butterflies, as well as traditional sweet rolls, muffins, sticky buns, and fruit turnovers.

The biscuit is light and fluffy and the sausage is good, but we prefer Merridee's biscuits smothered with gravy.
