I had the pleasure of meeting up with Becky of The SLC Foodie and The Vintage Mixer and Annalise of Completely Delicious for lunch one day. What better place for us to meet up, then Eva's Bakery! It was my first visit to Eva's Bakery, but it definitely wasn't my last.
(You may remember Becky from our Sweet Potato Pie date at Penny Ann's Cafe and Annalise from my Blackberry Yogurt Scones adapted from her scones recipe.)
After chit chatting for a bit and greedily eyeing all Eva's Bakery had to offer, from fresh bread to pastries like croissants and palmiers and filled canelés, I decided to stick with brunch and come back another time for sweets and desserts.
I ordered the Spanakopita Pie, organic eggs, spinach, feta, wrapped in phyllo which came with a side salad. Wow was the first thought that came in mind. Creamy, light, fluffy, flaky, cheesy deliciousness. I could barely finish this small piece as it was so rich and creamy. The extra vinaigrette drizzle was just the right amount.
Since I was torn between the Spanakopita Pie and the Brunch Pie, I ordered the Brunch Pie to go. Brunch Pie, ham, gruyère, easy eggs, bechamel sauce, arugula. I heated it up in the oven for breakfast the next morning. The combination of ham and cheese is such a classic and this was over the top with the extra egg and bechamel sauce. I will have to try and recreate this for breakfast myself!
I also grabbed the Steak Sandwich, slow roasted tri-tip, parmesan, arugula & olive oil, to go for Mr. Munchimunch to try out and he devoured it in no time. He barely inhaled. I'll have to assume he enjoyed it.
Since my lunch with Becky and Annalise, I've been back to Eva's Bakery for their croissants and palmiers. I braved the Rosemary Palmier which had a delightful subtle flavor and was sad I didn't pick up more!
If you haven't been to Eva's Bakery yet, I suggest you take the time to do so. This charming little place has so much to offer!
