Baguette From Bon Fresco: Go For The Sandwiches, Carry Home A Loaf Of Something

Sometimes, it is good to remember the basics.  Bon Fresco Sandwich Bakery does that, and that's why it's one of my best restaurants in Howard County.

Go for any of the sandwiches.  Maybe start with a cold cut or that London broil.  But the Columbia spot is worth a visit just for bread.

That's the base of all those sandwiches.  Baguettes, ciabatta, wonderful challah on Fridays.  You won't get a better loaf anywhere -- even after the revolution in bread around here.  Bon Fresco pays attention to the details, and they bake up special bread.

For $2, I grabbed a baguette last week as I was doing late-afternoon errands.  I broke a hunk in the car.  A light white crumb with a real flavor -- lightly sour, crisp on the outside.  We made sandwiches with just a slice of speck from Wegmans.

Just a note for those that don't know. If you have a takeout order including sandwiches and loaves, you have to grab the loaves yourself from the stock on the counter. Can't tell you the number of times I've had a friend, new to Bon Fresco, complain they didn't get their bread

This post made me salivate, and want to make the trip from Baltimore to Howard County just for this bread.
