Bakemeister in Norristown

This place is, despite its name, a fantastic Italian bakery. Not real flashy with the pastries and sweet stuff, but they have great tomato pie and the best semolina bread I've ever had outside of NYC (or Italy). Very spongy, dense, moist crumb, great crust, sprinkled with sesame seeds. They bake it on the premises and I was shocked they still had any when I arrived late-ish this Saturday afternoon.

I am not in Ntown often and so this was the first time I'd been there in years. The set-up in the place has changed from what I remember; they apparently serve sandwiches with lunchmeat now. And they now have (!) multi-grain bread, which I just had to try. Odd in that old-skool bakery, but hey, it's a new century. It was excellent, and as fresh and full of flavor, scent and texture as the semolina.

The semolina is just the best. I made my son stop in the lobby just to sniff before we went in.
