There are a number of good, locally made granolas, but the version at Breads Unlimited stands out for its toasty taste, golden hue and honey-vanilla aroma that should be patented as a room freshener. The packaging—an unmarked white bag—is as straightforward as the granola, which incorporates oats, raisins, cranberries and apricots. “Simple works, doesn’t it?” says bakery owner Steve Raab. Yes, indeed.
