Auntie Em's

About a block south of Senor Fish in Eagle Rock on the other side of the street is a a little place called Auntie Em's. Inside you order at the counter off of a chalkboard menu and a refrigerated case of freshly made salads. On your left are their baked treats, huge cupcakes, blondie bars and small cakes by the slice. I ordered the grilled chicken breast sandwich with grilled chicken, thick sliced applewood smoked bacon, avocado, fancy lettuce, tomato and mayo on a rosemary roll and a small side of potato salad and a bottle of mexican coke. The sandwich was in the $8 range and the side salad was about $3, so it isn't cheap, but I split it with Sarah. The sandwich was okay. The bacon was really good, nice and thick and meaty. The best part was at the end when you just have the avocado and bacon left over. Next time I'm getting the B.L.A.S.T. (bacon, lettuce, avocado, sprouts, tomato). The potato salad was pretty good. Not the watery mayo and celery concoction that you usually get. It had just enough mayo to keep all the potatoes together and most memorable for me, no celery. The cupcakes are a bit smaller than the Costco muffins, but not by much. At $3.50 each they're not cheap. The chocolate cupcake cake was a bit on the dry side but the frosting was really good dark chocolate. If they would only put that frosting on the Costco chocolate muffin....

Next door there is a little marketplace that sells cheese, sweets, and other gourmet items. Most of the cheeses they have are from small California farmsteads which coincidentally are my favorite kinds of cheeses.

i have not quite managed to work farmsteads into my daily vernacular so i applaud this impressive display of word choice.

I originally used boutique creameries, but that wasn't quite right.
