Midway: A Quick Bite at Midway School Bakery
When I stopped in at Midway School Bakery I was already familiar with their tasty baked goods. As part of the Ouita World food empire of Midway mogul Ouita Michel, Midway School Bakery supplies baked goods to all of Michel’s eateries such as nearby Wallace Station (an Eat Kentucky favorite location), Holly Hill Inn, Windy Corner Market (read my review) and more.
I stepped in to grab just a few of the delectable cookies they make, and although I have a soft, flaky spot in my heart for baked goods, I resisted anything else.
The bakery is indeed the kitchen to the old Midway school building, which is now converted apartments (woe unto the waistlines of those who live there). The bakery was stuffed with scones, muffins, seasonal pies—I was in a virtual glutenous cold sweat.
They also offer traditional breads, bagels, and quiche along with eat-in (or to-go) bagel sandwiches for breakfast and lunch.
I left with Rona’s Sorghum Crinkles (who could that be named after?), Sara’s Buttery Corn on the Cob Cookie (tastes just like corn…or Captain Crunch!), some of my beloved Woodford Cookies. The Woodford cookie has long stumped me, so I quizzed the helpful baker behind the counter and she revealed it had cocoa, oatmeal, chocolate chips, cranberries (and more!). I later discovered I also could have simply looked on the website. I preferred finding it out the hard way.
If you find yourself driving by the Midway School Bakery, by all means go try all the things I haven’t yet. Eating through their menu is a one-stop bakery bucket list. I suspect I’ll be back soon myself.
