The sweet smell of baking bread, cakes, cookies and muffins has been wafting from a small shop on South Walters Street since February. The “Breaking Bread Bakery” (a not-so-subtle reference to the Bible) sells bread and other goods – all made from scratch.
For lunch, they also offer a bag lunch, which includes a sandwich (made with their own bread), chips, and a soda.
Fran Dowell of Magnolia is the owner. She bakes everything herself and says that since it opened, the bakery has been “pretty steady but not overwhelming.”

I can remember going to the LaRue County Public Library as a child. A very fond memory of mine was going to the rack that housed the baggies with a book and a cassette of that book. I would flip through them until I found one that caught my eye and excitedly rush to Mrs. Kathy to check me out.
