On my way back from the chiropractor the other day, I stopped into one of my favorite places, Pane Fresco. Jim did some work for these people when they first opened and we've been their customers ever since. They make the best pizza ever and the bread.....ahhh, the bread! Heaven must smell like Pane Fresco.
It was near closing time when I popped in, but was lucky enough to snag a loaf of Fig Raisin & Walnut bread.
This is so yummy toasted. The raisins and figs make it sweet and the walnuts give it nutty goodness and a bit of crunch.
Sitting there, all alone, just one left, was a foccacia loaf.
It had my name all over it! I could not pass this baby up. I
Marc, the owner, also makes the best biscotti outside of Italy. My favorite is the almond-hazelnut.
My delicious treats were packed up to go and I grabbed an espresso for the walk home. They also have excellent coffee by the way.
I don't know if any of you reading this will ever end up in Burlington, but if you do, go see the folks at Pane Fresco. They are really nice people. They've had the same staff pretty much from day one so that tells you something. They also serve lunch with delicious soups, wicked sandwiches and they make their own gelato!
