Photos: The Buxton

June 29, 2009


A few days ago I reviewed the Apple Uglies from the Orange Blossom Bakery & Cafe down in Buxton, NC. This is a quick follow-up. You see, the Orange Blossom also does breakfast sandwiches, and my sister-in-law and her fiancee were kind enough to pick up one for me.


Ladies and gentlemen, this is The Buxton… the Orange Blossom’s addition to the recent craze of ridiculously over-sized sandwiches. The tagline for this one is “Don’t tell your doctor about this one!” It’s packed with six pieces of bacon, three sausage patties, three eggs, tomatoes, lettuce, and three slices of their homemade bread. It honestly wasn’t as big as I thought it would be, but it’s certainly filling. I could only eat half of it. And it’s a decent sandwich – you really can’t go wrong with a glorified BLT. The tomatoes were sliced thick, the bread was great, the eggs and bacon just fine. The sausage patties were a little too dense for the sandwich, but then again… I’m eating a gigantic sandwich, so maybe texture shouldn’t be one of my complaints.
