Smoked Salmon Sandwich with cream cheese, cucumbers, pickled red onions, and lemon pepper on Acme Levain
Cinnamon Currant Toast with whipped cream cheese and blackberry apple jam
This past weekend I visited a favorite cafe of mine, Elmwood Cafe on College. Previously I had the Poached Egg Sandwich and Curried Chicken Salad Sandwich, both of which were really good.
This time around I tried the Smoked Salmon Sandwich with the Cinnamon Currant Toast on the side. The open-faced sandwich was layered with cream cheese, smoked salmon, cucumbers, pickled red onions, and then sprinkled with pepper. The salty and sour flavors complemented each other nicely.
The Cinnamon Currant Toast was a nice way to end the meal on a sweet note. The bread was soft and swirled with cinnamon. The cream cheese and blackberry apple jam joined together to make the toast even more special, but not too decadent. In short, I would definitely order these again.
If you've visited Elmwood Cafe lately, what did you try?
