St. Louis Bread Company

"Bread" is, obviously, in the St. Louis Bread Company name, so you'd expect this popular chain to maintain a high degree of consistency in this category. Whether it's the simple goodness of their products, or the wide variety available at any of their locales, the Bread Co.'s breads register a solid win here, considering the sheer amount of competition, from rival Companion to The Hill's specialty bakeries to recent upstarts like Black Bear. Break a loaf in celebration, Bread Co.!
