Brazos Blue Ribbon Bakery in Bryan

Happy July 2nd!

This is a beautiful full-color ad of the Brazos Blue Ribbon Bakery at Villa Maria and Briarcrest from a late 1980s Texas Aggies football program.

Circa 1998, BBRB moved to College Station and this location became a Must Be Heaven, which survives today. I was never impressed with MBH (Must Be Purgatory, perhaps) but I admire its willingness to stick out in a difficult location.

Sadly, those kolaches are now just a memory, but there are some decent kolaches at Village Foods down the street. That sign is also gone, it's now just a rusty metal frame.
