The Breadbasket Restaurant & Bakery- Newton, Kansas

The Breadbasket in Newton, Kansas is a modest sized bakery and Mennonite influenced restaurant that is particularly known for its breakfast buffet and its Friday & Saturday night German buffet. The baked goods are all very good and the sausage is some of the best I have ever had. 

The $8.49 ($7.49 seniors, $6.49 ages 6-12, $.01 under 6) breakfast buffet is served Monday - Saturday from 6:30 - 10:30AM. The fresh fruit bar and breakfast buffet includes drinks, at least seven fruits, cinnamon rolls, fried potatoes, breakfast burritos, biscuits & gravy, bacon, sausage, fried ham, pancakes, scrambled eggs, and western scrambled eggs. Our favorite item is the French toast, which is so good it doesn't need butter or syrup.

But the Friday & Saturday evening German buffet is my favorite. Served from 4 - 8PM, the $13.99 buffet ($12.99 seniors, $9.99 ages 6-12, $.01 under 6) includes drinks, fresh breads, zwieback and homemade apple butter, a full salad bar, verenika with ham gravy, fried potatoes, baked ham, Yoder German sausage, hot German potato salad, and sauerkraut and sausage, chicken borscht, green bean & ham soups, cookies, German chocolate cake, tapioca pudding, cherry moos, and bohne beroggi.

I never liked borscht before, but the Breadbasket's borscht is made with cabbage and has no beets. It is one of the best soups which I have ever had.

Two of the desserts may be unfamiliar to most people. I first had cherry moos (creamy cherry soup) at the Mennonite Relief sale in Hutchinson and you should at least have a taste. But my favorite is the bohne beroggi. I had never heard of it before having it at the Breadbasket and wouldn't have tried it from the description, but it looked so good that I gave it a try. It is a warm pastry with sweet pinto bean paste inside and topped with a wonderful sweet, creamy sauce. Really wonderful!

On Sundays from 10:30 to 2PM, there is a $14.99 Five Meat Buffet  ($13.99 seniors, $9.99 ages 6-12, $.01 under 6)  featuring fresh baked dinner rolls, bread, salad bar, drink and dessert as well as a hot food bar with green beans, buttered corn, macaroni & cheese, mashed potatoes, dressing, gravies, fried chicken, fantail shrimp, tilapia, roast turkey and a weekly rotating 5th meat. Although I don't find this to be the special treat that the Breadbasket's German buffets are, it is still pretty good. For the most part, I like the side dishes and deserts more than the meats, with the fried chicken and breaded fried shrimp being my favorite meats.
