I had been wanting to check out this bakery for some time now. Couple of years to be exact. It is not in an area which I normally go to.
But, the first time, I couldn't find it.
The second time, they were closed.
The third time...well, the third time I got lucky. It just so happened that my Friday appointment got cancelled at the last minute, so I had some time on my hands.
This tiny bakery was packed with people, filling up their trays with breads, all sorts of breads! I was kind of shocked at how much people were buying. Like there was a shortage or something.
But, when you take a look at the selection, you'll realize why....they all look so good! You want to buy them all!
I couldn't decide and I couldn't decipher the French words written in katakana, and I didn't want to cause a back-up with the flow of people behind me.
So, I got a smoked salmon sandwich on a soft baguette (this had dill cream cheese and some dill pickles in it). A mini pastrami sandwich on ciabatta with a dill pickle in it.
Spicy chorizo baked into a chewy tomato baguette...my kind of "pig in a blanket"!
A blueberry danish...flaky puff pastry filled with custard and topped with fresh blueberries...delicious.
And cinnamon pecan bagels...different from the blueberry and plain that are always about. The bagels were chewy with lots of pecans throughout, I loved the sugar topping too. With cream cheese it was a great breakfast on Saturday.
I think the next time I want to try their cafe--which I found out about as I was leaving.
Closed on Sundays and Mondays (if Monday is a holiday then they are open)
UPDATE: as of Feb 2013, they are moving to another location
