Bonaparte Breads--Savage Mill

dstultz | Nov 3, 2002 11:24 AM

We were pleasantly surprised to discover, when stopping in to get a couple of loaves of bread, that Bonaparte Breads in Savage Mill served lunch. So now I can recommend not only their fabulous breads but also their lunch. FYI--Bonaparte supplies many restaurants in the area with their bread, so you may have enjoyed some already and didn't know it (three restaurants that I know of are Cafe de Paris, Tersiguel's, and Citronelle).

Their lunch menu is small, about 6 sandwiches and 3 platters/samplers. There is only one, in a plexi-sleeve at the register, so if you weren't paying attention, you might miss that they served lunch at all. My husband ordered the prosciutto and butter sandwich (how could you go wrong?!) with cornichons, served on one of their hearty baguettes. I had the pate' platter, with 3 different kinds of pate', garlic sausage, prosciutto, country ham, and cornichons, with slices of bread, of course (oh yeah, and dijon mustard too). Both were hearty and delicious. One of my pate's had coarse salt and black pepper in it. It was marvelous!! For dessert, we shared a schneike--it was layers of pastry with pastry cream and chocolate. Finger lickin' good!! We drank water, but they also had a what looked to be a very nice coffee and tea menu, too.

Bonaparte's is in the Spinning Building of Savage Mill in Savage, MD.

If you want bread, I recommend getting there before lunch, because the do sell out. They have pastries well into the afternoon.

Enjoy!
