Adding to an incredible dining scene in Putnam County is a new upscale bistro and bakery in Greencastle. BreadWorks by Bridges adds another unique spot to ‘destination Greencastle’s’ downtown shops and restaurants.
Open Wednesday through Sunday, this upscale bakery in Greencastle features pastries, breads and more. Sweet treats include donuts, pastries, cakes and morning buns. Breads include baguettes, focaccia and other artisan loaves.
An upstairs bistro features soups, salads, sandwiches, beer and wine. The upstairs area also serves as a spot to enjoy a pastry and coffee and a demonstration kitchen. On a pretty day, the upstairs windows are open to downtown Greencastle.
Mornings are busy with customers picking up a single treat or boxes of dozens of donuts and pastries. A robust coffee menu and tea choices round out the offerings of sweets and breads. Ask for a “Chef’s Special Dozen” and share the joy. Local firefighters were delighted to receive an unexpected treat as they began their day.
BreadWorks by Bridges is a vision that grew out of Bridges Craft Pizza & Wine Bar. The idea for both ventures came from DePauw University alumni Judson and Joyce Green. Donuts are nostalgia for the couple, and “bringing donuts back-to-life here in Greencastle” is now open. The space is bright and inviting, with plenty of beautiful touches like the entryway hanging featuring rolling pins.
TapHouse Burgers is another imprint of this family of restaurants clustered in a three-block area of downtown Greencastle. While you’re in town, stop by Conspire Contemporary Craft for unique local crafts and gifts. A block away, Burdge Boots features western wear boots, clothing and accessories.
