Bub and Grandma's Bread
You’d never know it now, but Bub & Grandma’s was always supposed to be a sandwich shop. Owner and baker Andy Kadin fell into the retail bread game and then ended up at the pinnacle of it, selling outstanding sourdough at farmers markets and to some of the best restaurants in town. Bub & Grandma’s has long been the go-to bread at Wax Paper, it is an essential component in Dune’s underrated pickled beet sandwich, and now—some three years after they signed their lease—Kadin and his crew are building their own sandwiches at their stylish deli in Glassell Park. The menu skews classic and options are simply labeled with a familiar word or two: Italian, Tuna, Roast Beef Au Jus. That aesthetic serves them well, minimalism executed at the highest level, such that each piece shines but none obscures the bread itself. It extends, too, to their pastry program, which puts clever twists of flavor into familiar shapes, including some of the best new donuts in town, airy little puffs with bright, contrasting frostings like passionfruit and lime.
