Grateful Bread Company
425 Violet Street, Golden
303-681-5406

One of Denver's favorite bakeries is honoring those who have served our country, this weekend at its weekly open house, with special prices for veterans and active-duty military personnel. On Saturday, May 27, current and past members of the armed forces will receive a 25 percent discount on baked goods — whether breads, pastries or pretzels — and house-milled grains when Grateful Bread opens to the public from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. And each Saturday until Veterans Day, the discount will continue at 15 percent off. Get there early though, because the line can get long, and the bakery usually sells out.
