City Bakery Revisted | Mar 8, 2006 04:46 PM

Went back today and had a much better experience. Ate at the counter instead of the salad bar and the pricing is much better there. Had a pressed sandwich with chicken and brie, a chicken sausage, lox and eggs, melted chocolate chip cookie, and pretzel croissant. Total was under $40 and was filling. Excellent onion rings (they are the greasy, mound type - not really battered rings), tasty citrus slaw, and very good chicken sausage with sweet mustard. O

Only disappointment was the bread. In a bakery with so many great breads, the eggs and sandwich were both served with plain 'ol white bread.

Chocolate cookie was, as everyone has already said, fantastic. Rich as can be but very good.

The counter menu also had some interesting items we didn't get: corn dog, smoked fish plate, eggs and salami, Neiman Ranch hot dog in bacon, oysters with bacon pan fried, and an assorted pickle plate.

Checked out the salad bar and it looked better than the first time I was there. Added organic pretzel chicken, caesar salad, and some other salads with tasty looking dressings. Also, lowered the price as another thread pointed out. It is still steep at $14/lb compared to other salad bars.
