Feel LIke a New Place for Lunch? Baguettes.

Hungry? Kinda wanting somewhere different to go for lunch?

I've got a great new find for you.

Most Saturdays, I do my weekly shopping...Elk Grove Farmer's Market, Target, Trader Joe's...with a break for lunch in the middle. Usually my Mom and I go to Chevy's and split chicken fajitas, to the point where the waiter expects us each week! This Saturday, she was busy so I decided to try something different and ended up at a little sandwich place that Therese has raved about, Baguette's.

Originally opened by the folks who own the excellent Boulevard Bistro in Old Elk Grove, and then sold not too long ago to new owners, it retained the fresh and surprising menu filled with gourmet sandwiches. There's also a tempting bakery case, daily freshly made baguettes and ciabatta, breakfasts, and big glass dispensers of iced tea and lemonade so you can make your own Arnold Palmers. Add in a few chairs and tables outside, a cart full of magazines to browse, and a smattering of customers smacking their lips while trading bites of sandwiches and you have a definite find. Especially in Elk Grove, land of the chain restaurants, it's refreshing to have this option. There's not a ton of curb appeal, but it's worth getting past the strip-mall location and unassuming facade.

Too many mouth watering choices on the menu so I just went with the special, a shrimp salad sandwich with lemon aoili, avocado, arugula and sliced red cherry peppers, with a side of homemade brown rice salad. Had my Kindle loaded with new library books, my iced tea/lemonade combo, some shade and a comfy chair...happy Saturday. Even sitting on the side of a parking lot!
