Everything is still made from scratch, the old-fashioned way – resulting in not only great taste but a nutritional product as well. You won’t find any pre-made mixes in this bakery – just bags of flour, whole grains and sugar, flats of eggs and cases of real creamery butter. It takes a lot of loving care to transform these staples into the delicious pies, brownies, cookies and breads you will find on the shelves every day. The menu includes the ever-popular chicken salad sandwich as well as tuna salad, egg salad and pimento cheese sandwiches, and a variety of grilled specialties all served on fresh homemade bread. In the fall of 2006 a full-service espresso bar was added, offering an extensive menu of old-world Italian style specialty coffees and espresso drinks. Merridee’s also features a daily variety of homemade soups, quiches, fresh salads and delicious desserts of pie, brownies, cakes and cookies.
