|Goodies From Best Regards Bakery|
Located in Overland Park, KS, they must be doing something right because both their menu and their customer base continue to expand.
The operation was started 19 years ago by Robert's wife, Cherrie, as a corporate gift basket business, but in 2002, the bakery portion of the business was born when they started making their own chocolate chip cookies to include in their baskets.
Today, their delicious offerings include several varieties of big soft cookies, cupcakes, brownies, gourmet sweet breads, cakes, cinnamon rolls, artisan breads (on Fri. and Sat.), and more at their retail location.

For a small fee, Best Regards Bakery now even offers classes to the public which include "Healthy Baking With Premium Ingredients," "Artisan Bread and Wine Pairings," and "Dessert and Wine Pairings."
I recently attended the Healthy Baking class which focuses on the importance of quality ingredients (ones that have not been processed and don't include tons of preservatives and additives) and how choosing the best ingredients make all the difference in flavor and texture.

At the end of the class, each attendee also left with their own chocolate cake (not just a piece of cake) and the recipe so we could make it at home.
While I was there, I also sampled the French country bread, brownies, and key lime pie. They were all excellent - bursting with flavor and melting in my mouth.
As far as price, Best Regards is not cheap. But according to Robert, "People will not pay for mediocrity. They will pay for quality."
The bakery is also set to begin serving sandwiches soon and possibly other new items in the future.
So, if you're looking for something a little different in a bakery and want to treat yourself, give Best Regards Bakery a try. Your sweet tooth will thank you for it.
