We have good news for those of you who have endured the lunchtime lines at the Stone Mill Bakery in Greenspring Station: They've now opened a new, quick-service operation right next door called Stone Mill Gourmet 2 Go (10751 Falls Road, Lutherville, 410-821-1310). The place stands in stark contrast to the old bakery/sandwich shop—bright, modern, and open. A long cafeteria-style counter offers patrons a selection of made-to-order food: meal-sized salads, freshly assembled burritos and quesadillas, a revolving selection of sandwiches and wraps (as well as obelisk-sized french fries), and individually sized flatbread pizzas. A separate counter serves up espresso, smoothies, and luxurious desserts. It can get a little confusing to distinguish each station's individual lines, and since food is prepared to order, you'll need to wait a few minutes for it to be ready. But everything we tried was tasty, and if you're really in a hurry, two refrigerator cases are full of ready-made lunches and quarts of soup for a quick dinner. Like the name says, these dishes are meant to be eaten elsewhere, but there's a nice selection of umbrellaed tables outdoors.
The Stone Mill Bakery’s new carryout business lets it quicken its pace.
