A little bit of Heaven

Old Town Bakery

Old Town Bakery

Just a block from the Eden House, Old Town Bakery is rapidly becoming one of my favorite Key West lunch spots. I am trying to stay away from the desserts and that is tough there. This is a photo of a lunch a couple of days past. Turkey sandwich on fresh baked dark rye bread, pickle soup (don’t scoff) and a Mexican Coke (bottled in Mexico using cane sugar). A heavenly combination of flavors. The sandwich is top notch but pales in comparison with the pickle soup. Yes, this was my first time to have pickle soup (dill of course- though I had to ask) and it won’t be my last. I love soups! And will have them on a 90 degree day. Pickle soup is up there with Cauliflower as my favorite. If you have never had a Mexican Coke, try one soon. It tastes like soda used to taste before the country went to corn syrup. To me, this is the reason Tootsie Rolls and Three Musketeers don’t taste like they did when I was a kid. No, it’s not that my taste buds are fired and I haven’t smoked a cigarette in over 40 years. Sorry for the rambling.

Give Old Town Bakery a try next time you are in town or in the neighborhood. Their specials are on facebook daily. That is if you do that stuff?

See Ya
