We suspect that Beyond Bread could open in a circus tent and still be crowded at lunch. Now in their newly expanded digs across the street from their original store on Campbell Avenue in a renovated former Nevada Bob's, plus a second store on the eastside on Speedway Boulevard, they are just as crowded as ever. The new store boasts vastly improved dining space, filled with lunch-time workers from UA and UMC offices. The sandwich options are myriad with more than 30 hot and cold selections to choose from, not counting add-on extras like pesto, bacon, artichoke hearts or olive paste or salads. The foundation for the sandwiches is the famous fresh-baked bread. Portions are generous, so plan on taking half of your meal back to work with you to re-live your delight later.
