Bacon and Egg Roll : Worthy Mention

Ever since Clint made his "best bacon & egg roll" call on his blog back in May 2009, we've had a benchmark to compare all bacon & egg rolls to.  This effort above, created by Brewbakers in Albion, is definitely worth a mention. 

The key to success here is simplicity.  The roll is made on site and is light, crunchy on the outside, but soft inside.  The bacon and egg are tasty and just the right quantity for the size of the roll.  The main downside is that it doesn't have tomato sauce.  To counter this, there is some fresh tomato, which saves it from being too dry.  But it doesn't truly compensate for tomato sauce.  To be fair, I've never asked for tomato sauce, so it might be something they offer, but I feel it should come with sauce or have sauce bottles available.

Combine this bacon & egg roll with the good coffee they serve and perhaps a little pastry for afters and it's a hit.  They do decent bagels and sourdough breads as well.  Nice to find a little bakery gem close to home.

  1. I'm looking forward to giving it a try next time I'm up. And I'll have to taste their sourdough for research purposes too!

  2. Mmm, it is good. We sampled on the weekend with Dave & Ali.
