Photos: Best Breakfast & Sandwiches re-visit!

January 4, 2010

Last week I had the opportunity to return to one of my favorite new finds of 2009: Best Breakfast & Sandwiches (see my review here). I visited with a small troupe from the Wild Goose Creative New Year’s Festival. Last year I took a group to Banana Bean Cafe, and this year we visited a new favorite.

I sat at the counter this time, which offers a fun look at the kitchen, plus lots of snarky commentary from the crew there. And it’s great for warming up on cold winter days! Here’s owner Tom cutting up some fresh cinnamon buns.

And his wife Jan doing the same!

The cinnamon buns were my new discovery this time. Our visit coincided with their arrival directly from baker Scott Jester’s kitchen. Scott stops by every other day (or every day on weekends) with warm trays of the buns for Best Breakfast.

Jan let me feel the warm tray, just to show me how fresh they are. And then it didn’t take long to convince me to try one.

Heavenly business, these are good. Warm, soft, slathered in a sweet-but-not-too-sweet frosting. Needless to say, I took one more home to my wife. The danger with these, though, is if you order one before your breakfast arrives. You’ll never be able to eat all the food!

Especially when you order like me! Ever since my visit here with the PBS “Breakfast Special” crew, I’ve been craving the Country Fried Steak. So ordering was easy. Definition of comfort food.

Already planning my next visit!
