The King of Bakeries: Broadstreet Bakery

The Restaurant:

Broadstreet Bakery is located inside Banner Hall on “the Hill” on I-55 Frontage Road South. If you’re familiar with Jeff Good and Dan Blumenthal, then you definitely know this flagship restaurant for its freshly baked breads, pastries, and delicious sandwiches. The bakery has indoor and outdoor patio dining options available, with counter service for placing orders. The staff is friendly and their hospitality is exceptional. Co-owner Jeff Good recently referred to his team’s brand of service as radical hospitality. I couldn’t agree more. It is hard to surpass this crew on service, whether your order is to go or you plan to sit and visit for a while.

The Broadstreet Way:

Over the years, Broadstreet has made a name for itself in the King Cake world (you’d be delighted to know they now carry their signature king cakes year round), and it was already the reputable king of fresh breads in Jackson. Each sports season, you can count on Broadstreet offering one of a kind sugary baked treats to show your edible school spirit. You can purchase their fresh baked loaves of bread to enjoy at home – at your convenience. Broadstreet also has a concise and consistent menu for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. If you’re a student, you can enjoy a discount on your meal purchases. Lastly, kids eat free on Saturday nights (with an accompanying adult meal purchase).

The Food:

Broadstreet has staple sandwich combinations as well as delicious entrée items to choose from. I usually get the basil pesto chicken salad sandwich, but this time I decided to try the smoked chicken BLT instead. I paired my BLT with a cup of gumbo and decided to go with fresh baked focaccia as my bread of choice. This sandwich consisted of smoked chicken breast, Texas smoked bacon, and roasted garlic mayo, topped with lettuce and tomato.

When my sandwich was delivered to my table, my eyes gazed at the goodness piled mile high and I could smell the garlic in my sandwich. The lettuce and tomato were crisp, the mayo was perfect, and the smoked chicken breast was what I expected from a quality deli cut. The focaccia bread was fresh and delicious, as always. The gumbo is good for a bakery, I’d say. It’s a simple gumbo blend, with chicken, sausage, tomato, onion, etc. It had a slight kick, but not too much. I’ll be adding the smoked chicken BLT into my faithful sandwich ordering rotation at Broadstreet from now on.
