FOODIE TRAIL REVIEW: Breaking Bread celebrates Four Years in Clifton

When Paul and Cherise Morales moved from Fresno, California, to Clifton, Texas, they had one goal in mind; their dream of opening up a bakery and deli. Today, Breaking Bread Bakery & Deli provides lunch meals with sandwiches, desserts, and hot soups perfect for colder weather. We stopped by for a review of a staple sandwich, The Gobbler, as well as a new fan favorite, the Texas Tornado. The couple recently celebrated their four-year restaurant anniversary, introducing the tornado in the process.

“We’re proud to be part of the Clifton community, and we’ve been accepted here with open arms, so we plan on being around for a while. As long as they’ll have us."

The Gobbler

The Gobbler was actually a specialty sandwich that proved popular enough to make it on the menu. Complete with sliced turkey breast, bacon, melted Havarti cheese, and tomato on toasted sourdough this sandwich deliciously melted in our mouths. But one ingredient we didn’t mention ties everything together. The house-made Garlic Pesto Aioli is the glue and key flavor that made this sandwich work the careful preparation. Though it isn’t a traditional cranberry sauce and turkey sandwich, this delectable sandwich is more flavorful (and desirable) with every bite.

The Texas Tornado

Of course, with the four-year anniversary celebrated recently, we had to try this signature sandwich created in honor of continuing to serve the Clifton Community. Something special about this dish in particular is scratch and house-made ingredients with every bite.

“That sandwich from start to finish is made here."

-Paul, explaining the process.behind the Tornado Tweet

Brioche bread baked right in the kitchen, homemade chicken salad, with lettuce and tomato seems like an extremely simple combination, but is about as mouthwatering as it comes. The sandwich is a house specialty, and worth finishing every bite.

Coconut Macaroons

If there was an icing on the cake, the Coconut Macaroons are it. A combination of delicious coconut and chocolate put the perfect final touches on every meal. Though these may seem small, they compensate with rich flavor. Amazingly, the macaroons are gluten-free as well.

Peanut Butter Toffee Fudge

The Peanut Butter Toffee Fudge provided nutty flavor without the intense sweetness of store-bought fudge. A rich all-around flavor without being too much is the best way to describe this dessert baked at Breaking Bread.

Pumpkin Shortbread Cookie

With the familiar flavor of Pumpkin with soft-baked bread and a hint of sugar, the Pumpkin Shortbread Cookie is more akin to sweetbread, but perfect for a fall flavor palette. We’d recommend a batch of these for a fall gathering or family meal.

The Conclusion

All in all, the craft of Breaking Bread Bakery and Deli is in the creativity and combination of great ingredients. We’d recommend this Clifton establishment to anyone passing through or long-term foodies in town. Breaking Bread already has a strong following, but if you haven’t tried it yet, you’re missing out.
Fall baked goods are in season currently as well, with the cutoff for Thanksgiving orders set as November 16. Every year, the restaurant makes Pumpkin Cheesecake, the Pumpkin Shortbread Cookies, and even Pumpkin Rollups with cream cheese filling (akin to Crème Horns). Be sure to stop by in downtown Clifton to try everything out we didn’t get to, including soups, salads, and more.
