Lunch On the Palouse

Our youngest daughter, Rebekah (Becka), her husband Tony, Jim and I drove 12 miles out of town today for a trip to tiny Uniontown, WA. (photos at right and below)-- population 345. There's a wonderful bake shop there, Sage Baking Company, that is just darling and serves yummy fresh baked bread, sandwiches, homemade soup and delectable pastries. The drive was gorgeous and not too far a distance for a "change of pace" lunch. Becka and I had eaten there a few weeks ago on one of our excursions "off the beaten path" and could hardly wait to share our discovery with Tony and Jim.

Sage Baking Company is housed in a quaint, small, red brick building on the main street in Uniontown-- with a friendly "down-home" atmosphere and staff. It appears to be very clean and attacks lots of travelers who are passing through on their way to large cities. While we were eating, customers continued to flow in and out, but it was not crowded at all. Sitting at a table near a window facing the street, we had a great view of the slow moving traffic and the old-fashioned buildings in town.

Jim, Tony, Becka and I, all agreed, we had spent a perfect summer Saturday afternoon on the rich, fertile land of the Palouse of eastern Washington.

I've been to that location of Sage Bakery many times--now I guess it's the only location. I love their baked goods--wish they had more stores.
