After my bizillionth BLTA sandwich from Cole's Peace Bakery in Key West, I'm ready to admit my addiction. Usually a brown bagger, I splurge once a week on this amazing sandwich. Here's their description:
What can you do to make a good sandwich even better? Start with the freshest ingredients, like our locally-sourced Tomato, Lettuce and Avocado. Add top-quality bacon and mayonnaise and serve it on Cole's Peace White Toast. That's our BLTA
. Fresh, Simple and Delicoius.
I'll have to find out what brand of bacon they're using. It's smoky and thick, but not too thick to eat in a sandwich. And the mayo is just right, too.
Cole's Peace is located at 1111 Eaton Street (near White Street) adjacent to the Restaurant Store. They have a deep menu of great sandwiches. Here's today's specials (it's a chilly day by Key West standards):
Boar Sausage w/smoked apples, carmelized onions, goat cheese and arugula on Ciabatta....Hot Roast Beast, Cheddar, Lettuce, Tomato, Onion & Dijonaise on Baguette
(Note: only sandwich not recommended is the Mediterranean Mix)
We're so fortunate in this smallish outpost to even have a real bakery. My 3 yr old can't get enough of their Cinnamon Raisin Pan Bread--he asks, "Mom, can I have a piece of my FAVORITE food, please?" He's becoming a little RoadFoodie!
