Highway 49--Gold Rush Country
Andrae’s Bakery 14141 Old Hwy. 49, Amador City, (209) 267-1352. Thur-Sun 7:30am-4pm. Hand-shaped, unsliced organic breads are made here from scratch daily. A dense multigrain seeded loaf with a tinge of licorice from fennel seeds is my personal favorite. Pastries include a variety of delicious scones and cookies (the crunchy chocolate nib cookies are very popular) as well as a Basque pound cake studded with walnuts and dusted with powdered sugar. Also look for housemade crackers and tortilla chips, premade sandwiches, and a selection of craft beers from around the world, Amador County wines, and cheeses. This is the place to pick up perfect picnic fare and edible souvenirs.
