“Merridee's has amazing fresh baked breads, pastries, pies, sandwiches, soups and so much more. I have been going to Merridee's Breadbasket since it opened in 1984. Merridee, the original owner, has since passed away. The new owner's kept her original recipes; i.e., chicken salad, pimento cheese, great blue cheese dressing and much more. They also added many new items to the menu giving everyone lots of great items to choose from. ”
