Cranberry Orange Cookie
cranberry orange chocolate Behold:  Our Cranberry Orange Chocolate is back!
This is our very own blend of chocolate that has all the flavor of the best dark chocolate, but smooth like a milk chocolate with natural orange & dried cranberries.
All 3 flavors so perfectly balanced that with each bite the flavors arrive in a different order. Get it while you can!

Note:  We used to sell this in hundreds of specialty food shops, but now only available in KC at Best Regards! 
Some things are too good to share.

christmas sugar cookies from best regards cookie cutters
Sugar cookies are always in season at Best Regards Bakery!
You would think that 500 cookie cutters would be enough for any rational baker.  The wife thought she just had to have 9 more! We are finishing up a little re-model in the front to showcase our collection.
Taste Tester Program
Heirloom Tomatoes
Heirloom tomatoes, best regards Heirloom Tomatoes
Why:  Because they are simply the best.
How: We have been working over the past few years with 2 different growers to ensure that we will have fresh, Heirloom tomatoes every week of the year!
What:  We are using these on everything that we can, including our BLT, Turkey Club, Caprese Grillec Cheese and all of our Salads   
Lutlimate BLT the Ultimate BLT
Yes, it is true, you can get the Best BLT you have ever had, in the middle of February! We pack 6, thick cut slices of Berkshire bacon with several slices of tomatoes on our very own, house made sourdough breads.  Come on in and you can have juice running down your arm!
Cherokee Purple availability will be spotty for a few weeks until our next crop comes in. Same great bacon, same great bread!
Over the last 18 years, Robert Duensing has earned the title of The Cookie Man, from Kansas City!  This title was first given to him by Toby Tobin, live on the radio, over 11 years ago. 

A great and memorable cookie is all about the flavors, texture and aroma.  You will find that many of our signature cookies are 1/4 lb, which are big enough to share, but good enough that you won't.  Robert is obsessed with creating recipes that are not too sweet, so you can enjoy the flavors of the great ingredients that he searches out for each unique recipe.
This is something that Robert strives
to live up to every day.

What Makes BRB Special? Current Top 5 Goodies
  1. Everything is Scratch:  Absolutely everything is made from scratch.  In today's world this is the only way we can be sure of what is in the foods we sell.  Unlike most every other bakery we do not use any box or bag mixes that you just add water to.  We don't even use just plain old dried cranberries, we take that extra step to make everything special.
  2. Best in the World:  We search throughout the world for the best ingredients we can find to elevate every single ingredient of every product we make.  Artisanal bread is pretty simple as it only has 3 ingredients:  flour, water and salt.  We use King Arthur flour, sea salt and filtered water.  European butter, Madagascar bourbon vanilla and real Limoncello are a few other examples.
  3. Original Recipes:  Every single recipe we use is a Best Regards Bakery original that involved many weeks and months of testing.  Our French Country Bread took 7 months and our Signature Chocolate Chip Cookie to 3 months and 72 test recipes.
  4. Friendly Service:  We are a family owned business worked by family and friends that really care about your bakery and gifting experience.  We have been around for 18 years and we still listen to your feedback.
  5. Passion:  In case you have not noticed, we are foodies with a passion for the best quality food possible.  We are constantly looking for that one extra step we can take to elevate the perfect sweet treat to something even better.
  1. Iced Sugar Cookies:  Imagine a cookie with all the flavor of the best shortbread, but soft and beautifully decorated with an icing that is not too sweet.
  2. Cranberry Orange Cookies:  If a Scone could grow up into an amazing cookie, this is what it would be!  This has the perfect balance of orange, cranberry and moist, tender cookie, but not too sweet. Just selected the Best Cookie in Kansas!
  3. Turkey Club Sandwich:  This not your run of the mill Sandwich!  A great deal of thought and effort went into this.  The bacon is from Paradise Locker Meats, that uses field raised Berkshire hogs and minimally processes the bacon.  For the tomato, we use organic, heirloom Cherokee purple tomatoes that are locally grown. The Artisan bread is made just for this sandwich and we add hearts of romaine lettuce, oven roasted turkey & colby jack cheese.
  4. Cream Puffs & Eclairs:  These will take you back many years, to the last legit Cream Puff, in some cases over 40 years!  These are baked old school and totally hollow, not just cut in half.  We also make our cream filling from scratch, no buckets or can's here. 
  5. the Pick 2 Lunch:  We brought back this popular lunch option.  You can 6 different Half Sandwich options and 8 different half Salad options, including Greek, Caesar, Chop and our new Linda's Chef Salad.
