Bakeries are an essential part of communities across America. Today, they are celebrated for their authentic old-school style and fresh offerings from cookies to cakes.
South Carolina is brimming with bakeries, both old and new. Only one, however, made it onto Taste of Home's best in the country list.
So where can you find the best bakery in the state? According to Taste of Home, you'll have to head to Benjamin's Bakery & Cafe in Surfside Beach.
A Horry County favorite, Benjamin's has been turning out fresh bagels, bread, muffins, pastries, and pretzels for over 25 years now.
Located right on the Grand Strand, Benjamin's is a mandatory stop before spending a day at the beach.
Classic bakery offerings range from donut holes to cinnamon rolls, scones, muffins, and pies but the real star of the show here is the bakery's award-winning bread.
With over 25 different varieties to choose from, Benjamin's allows its guests to try bread from around the world and each piece is handmade fresh from the oven daily.
Their meticulous baking process yields a perfectly chewy and crispy crust with a soft inside. Fans have cited it's the best bread in town, and maybe even the whole country.
Whether you opt for a bagel breakfast sandwich or one of their 16 different signature deli sandwiches–you can rest assured that this will be one of the best you've ever tried.
