Today, I am steppin’ out of my kitchen to share one of my favorite places to get a sandwich with a salad! Village Baker is a hidden treasure in my book. It may not be noticed as people zoom down 90th South in West Jordan, Utah. It is tucked in the center of a strip center just off of Redwood Road and may be overlooked.
I have been a fan of the place since I first sampled it with some friends from work. Just after high school, I worked as a teller at a bank on 104th South and Redwood. One day, the girls from work were gonna get lunches to go from there. I joined in and placed an order. From that point on, I was a fan.
The bread is what makes Village Baker so fabulous. They have an amazing white and wheat bread but my favorite is the squaw bread. Not only do they serve their sandwiches on their yummy bread, but you can also buy a loaf to take home for around $4. The bread is made daily with no preservatives.
You would expect a place with the word “Baker” in the name to have sweet baked goods too and they do.
I haven’t been overly impressed with their giant cookies, but the super sized brownies are delish. Cinnamon rolls can also be found here and are excellent to get.
They serve gourmet specialty pizza too but I must admit I haven’t given them a try yet, but it is on my list. I will update this post once I give them a try. They begin at $7.19 for a small one topping and go up to $16.79 for a large specialty.
My absolute favorite thing to order is the 1/2 sandwich with salad. I like the turkey breast and cranberry on squaw with the spinach salad for $7.59. Not only does the sandwich include turkey with cranberries but you can also find some cream cheese and mayo sandwiched in there. The spinach salad includes some spring greens, craisins, feta cheese, red onion, and glazed nuts with a balsamic vinaigrette on the side to coat the whole thing in. Love it!
The salad is quite a generous amount and is usually too much for me after eating my half sandwich. So I usually eat half of it and save the other half later.
You can also find soups on the menu, broccoli cheese is severed each day along with a soup of the day. You can find the daily soup listed on their website. It is $3.39 for a cup of soup with a roll! If you are local, I hope you have a chance to give them a try.
