Amical & a Special Guest Submission!


Confession: this is not our first time at the rodeo. Since one or both of us eat at Amical every other day, it was only a matter of time until we reviewed the bread, and sure, it’s not a basket, but don’t hold that against us. The best news? This is only one of THREE choices of bread depending on time of day — brunch, lunch, dinner! So have no fear, Amical reviews will be back.


Traverse City, MI


  • Doughy goodness. I mean who wants a hard breadstick?
  • Topped with BUTTER!, garlic, and–I quote a staff member–“other stuff.” For the record, said “other stuff” is delicious.
  • This batch was a little heavy on the garlic–in a good way.
  • Highly dippable (see photo below).




  • Pre-butter + additional butter = happy butter lover.
  • Butter packets. Incongruous with the sophisticated surroundings and excellent service.
  • Well, at least they weren’t cold.
  • Packet to breadstick ratio was insufficient.



No need to even ask. When you have that look on your face, they just know. They brought us six sticks, I repeat six sticks, from the start. That’s three full breadsticks per person (would have been two, but we had our gluten-free bread beard with us)!

AND NOW!  A Special Guest Submission from NYC!

Max is in New York City and lovin’ some big apple breads! He sent in an rye-witness report from Park Avenue Summer. He says “The bread is warm, the butter is warm and soft, and it came with a little salt on the side!” — sounds like a real winner to us! Look at that variety, and you have to love the little sheet telling you what you are about to enjoy.

    I’m ravenous at the moment and could almost eat the screen that Park Ave. bread looks so good. (Fortunately headed to Georgina’s in an hour.)
