The Pastrami sandwich is unique and awesome. You’re not going to find this one anywhere else! Every now and then I get the medium Roast Pork on the soft bread. The pork roast is cooked there in the back, not pre-packaged; if you get the small sandwich you’ll be sorry unless you’re saving room for one of the “REAL CUSTARD” filled Éclairs.
Now if you want Seafood, split a Large with a friend and grab a couple of Brews from the Antique Coke Cooler. That’s where George hides them; you won’t be sorry. Another of the sandwiches I enjoy is the Scallop Sandwich, on the soft bread; Eli is the one who turned me on to this little GEM. Yum!
Occasionally I pickup a Baker’s Dozen of the Small Soft Rolls for my flank steak sandwiches, when I’ve got friends coming over for a cook out.
Someone else mentioned their Orange Donuts. I got it on good authority Homer Simpson is a fan too. If you’re looking for good Baklava, look no farther! You will find a lot of hidden treasures in those display cases. Christmas is coming which means their Award Winning Fruit Cake should be making a seasonal appearance soon.
I don’t get by the Bakery for a one of a kind sandwich as often as I did years ago, and to exchange friendly barbs with George or play a game of Backgammon with Eli.
So the next time you’re in the Riverview section of Norfolk, experience The French Bakery. Their prices may seem high but these Sandwiches are worth it!
P.S. Ask George if today is the day is the day of BOGO? LOLOL!
