Kneaders Bakery and Cafe. My daughter and I went to the newest Kneaders on Friday after my son’s football game. My daughter called it a “fast-food cracker barrel.” I am guessing she said that because there is a (Hallmark-like) shop. The menu is primarily sandwiches, salads, and soups. There is a ton of bakery items as well (my daughter said the pumpkin cookie was great). I understand we should go back for the french toast (we didn’t get there in time for the free meal). They are opening a few more locations in the next weeks: CASTLE ROCK – Planned opening Friday, October 16 (810 New Memphis Ct. Castle Rock, CO 80109) and ENGLEWOOD – Planned opening Friday, October 23 (9846 Zenith Meridian Dr.Englewood, CO 80112). To celebrate their grand openings, the first 100 customers at each new location will receive a complimentary meal of Kneaders’ famous French toast on their first day of business.
