River and Rail Bakery in Huntington scored a spot on the 101 Most Unique Places to Dine in WV list this year. Which means it became a priority.
The bakery is located in Heritage Station, which also houses other great places like Butter It Up, Bottle & Wedge, and Summit Beer Station. It is known for its handcrafted artisan breads, fresh pastries and direct-trade organic coffee.
We stopped in just briefly for a sweet snack. There were a number of cookies and scones, as well as fresh bread. But one of my favorites was available: brownies! I ordered one and had a seat at one of the couple of tables available. It wasn't overly sweet, and there were bits of semisweet chocolate chips inside - not my favorite. But, it wasn't bad. I imagine this would go well with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. And maybe some caramel to sweeten things up a bit. Have I mentioned I have a sweet tooth? :)
