ADDRESS: 20 Greensboro Hwy, Watkinsville
Although the Granary is a Watkinsville bakery, its name goes around Athens. If you're looking for a good pastry and don't mind driving for 10 minutes, you should give the Granary a try. It's not far off the Loop's Watkinsville exit (exit 4).
The Granary opened in 2009, but went under new ownership last year. The current owner is a local.
After seeing Granary products in Athens spots like Two Story, I really wanted to go to the source. It wasn't a huge detour from my route home, so I stopped by on Friday. I have to say I'm glad I went to the store instead of just eating a product in Athens.
