The Corner Bakery, not on a corner, not a bakery and ..........

The CB is like the Holy Roman Empire which was neither Holy, nor Roman, nor an Empire. CB is in the middle of the block on Westwood Blvd in the 900 or 1000 block (two blocks down from Weyburn), There are a couple of tables outside, a somewhat pleasing interior but with music too loud and doesn't show too much evidence that it is a bakery anymore than Starbucks is a bakery; there were a few tired brownies, limp lemon bars and several small bundt cakes and only three kinds of bread loaves.

I like the Greatful Dead loud but some kind of leftover 80's music loud just doesn't go with soup and a san. Its hard to find something to eat there because it has the mundane selection of panini and salads with the eternal peppered turkey (which I like actually although one can never find again the peppered turkey baguette with lemon caper dressing which we used to buy at Passari (??) the chain eaten by Starbucks). I had linguine which was quite good, carbonara with plenty of chicken, bacon slivers and fresh peas. Partner had the half reuben (not good) with Antica chicken soup - could not make up its mind whether it was gumbo or Campbells. Then for the brownie - not worth eating because it had choc chips in it and no fudgy texture. Comfortable seating in the booths but the thinest paper napkins seen all week. My lunches next week, hurrah, will be on the beach at Mazatlan adrift in seas of shrimp and lobster.
