berkshire bacon Berkshire Bacon 

Step 2 of creating the Ultimate BLT is the Bacon. After many years of research and personal sacrifice, we have concluded that the Best Bacaon anywhere is the Berkshire bacon from Paradise Locker meats, up in Trimble, MO. They partner with local farmers to field raise heritage hogs like the Berkshire for them. yes, this takes a little longer and cost more than the factory hogs used elsewhere, but come on.
This is Bacon, and well worth the extra effort.

We use Q=6 thick cut slices of back for each BLT.

BONUS: Each BLT will now earn you
3 Reward Points. Earning rewards at Best Regards is fast and easy. A FREE Decorated Sugar Cookie is just 10 points.

sourdough bread Sourdough Bread 

The foundation for any sandwich, but expecially the Ultimate BLT is the bread. Skimp on the bread and you just have a sandwich. Back in the day, we did not even tell people that our bread was Sourdough, just that we made it in-house. People used to be afraid of the work Sourdough as they instantly thought of San Francisco Sourdough that had that odd "twang".
We have now learned that true Sourdough simply means "naturally leavened", meaning not commercial yeast or other chemicals used in mass production.  Now we all know that this word has been abused and there are really only a few of us here in KC that truly make Sourdough Bread.
BONUS: French Country Batards as shown here are now available for walk-in or online ordering every Friday & Saturday. Cost is $9 and each will now earn you 2 Reward Points.

new patio treats  Patio Season
In Full force

*Fresh Fruit Pizza
Sugar Cookie Closeup Just a Sugar Cookie? 

This economy is forcing every Bakery & Restaurant to evaluate their priorities. This is reflected in their final product, pricing and services offered. Think about the 1/2 gallon of ice cream that we used to love. Can you imagine the outrage if gas stations showed prices per liter?

This is a side profile of a standard Sugar Cookie in our case. It is still huge, still thick (1/2 inch) and still soft. It also still tastes wonderful as we still use European butter, Madagascar bourbon vanilla and King Arthur flour.

This is who we are and what we make. That will never change.  Oh, the price?
10 years ago:  $2.99 each
Today:  $3.99 each

Italian Stallion the Italian Stallion

This is the headliner of our new Spring Patio menu.  Made with our house Focaccia bread, 5 meats and a house made italian dressing to pull it all together.
caesar salad New:  Salad Menu
We have listened to your feedback and have redesigned our whole menu from the cutting board all the way to your table. 

1. Quality, quality, quality.  Kepp making everything from scratch from the best ingredients possible, especially the dressings.

2.  Portion sizes. Big & heavy lunches that force you to either overeat or take home leftovers are gone.  We have right-sized our salads for you and for us.

3.  Pricing.  Customers were hoping that as long as we can accomplish 1 & 2, they would appreciate a little help with the pricing. We get it, times are crazy.

At left is the Caesar Salad:
Lightly dressed with our scratch made and old schoool Caesar dressing. $6.99
focaccia sandwiches Big Menu RollBack
We are rolling our whole Lunch menu back to simpler times.  We are focused on more appropriate serving sizes and yes, lower prices. 
In years past, we all got used to obscenely large servings with way too much food. Today, with higher food costs, all that waste is unacceptable.

Bes sure to give our new Menu a try, with everything still made from scratch and plenty of options.

Cosmic Fudge Cookie
Remember those amazing treats that you only got on special occaisions as a kid? We do and wanted to see if could upgrade it to an amazing adult treat. This is a totally different recipe from our other 12 original chocolate cookie, cake & brownie recipes.  It is amazing how much difference a slight change in ratios and technique can make.

You worked hard this week and deserve a treat!

Lemon Bars Cari's Lemon Bars,

We have finally perfected our Lemon Bars. The challenge has be to capture the authentic and natural tartness of our Limoncello Poundcake but balanced with a tender and buttery crust. Sometimes it takes a combination of old school meets new school.
Rest assured that we are doing everything possible to keep this fully stocked.
Available by the piece or 8x8" pan.

This is available as a side salad or as a lunch.  You can also upgrade by adding sous vide chicken or Grilled Salmon.
salmon caesar salad Blackened Salmon
We make our own blend of seasoning for our Blackened Salmon, so that it is not too salty or spicy.  This can be added to any salad as an upgrade.  Yes, it tastes as good as it looks.

Classic Wedding Cake
Now available as a Slim or 8x8 Pan

 We asked our customers, what is the one cake that you want us to make? The clear favorite was Wedding Cake (without having to dress up). A sublte almond flavor, with a real buttercream frosting is what really makes it special. We did the research and found a wonderful almond flavoring that was absolutely dreamy.

cinnamon roll with cream cheese frosting Rock'n & Roll'n
We love to visit with our guest about favorite food memories. One bite of these and you will flash back to walking through Ward Parkway Mall in the 1990's.
We start with a Brioche dough, plenty of Saigon cinnamon, European butter and topped with a scratch made Cream Cheese frosting. Oh, and we found a way to make the entire Cinnamon Roll just like the middle.
turkey club Turkey Club Sandwich

This is my all time favorite Summertime sandwich. Yes, even over our BLT. This is more balanced with the turkey, cheese and special sauce in addition to the Berkshire bacon, lettuce and tomato. We also build this on our hearty, thick cut sourdough bread to hold it all together. I sometimes have to schmush it a bit to be able to eat it, but man oh man!

the Best Cookie in Kansas!
Cranberry Orange Cookie
Over the last 23 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 15 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. Salmon BLT: The hardest thing for any restaurant to get right is the Bread. Ironicly, it is also the most important factor to a great sandwish.  Blackened Salmon with Berkshire bacon, special dressing with the best tomatoes we can find on our toasted sourdough bread.
  2. Caesar Salad:  Inspired by the two best Caesar Salads that we have ever had ( EBT &B Jaspers). We make the dressing from scratch and make our own Croutons. Grilled Salmon is available as an upgrade.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
  5. Scratch Foods = Fond Family Memories
