The unsung hero of any great meal is the bread service. Whether it's a server walking around with tongs and a wicker basket, or a warm bowl of tiny little brioche buns with salted butter, bread service is the first impression a restaurant makes on a diner. And, sometimes it's more than just the crusty loaf in front of you, as a good spread and accoutrement can raise the bread to an amazing course all its own. And, good bread isn't available only at restaurants. Philly has a clutch of great bakeries that answer the call for anyone in need of a starchy treat.
