A couple of years ago I was introduced to the wonderful world of Quiche at this same place, Buena Vista Deli. It was like the day I learned to ride a bike or when I realized I disliked Lettuce, in other words….a day I won’t forget.
I love the logo for Buena Vista Deli. An overweight Superhero carrying some loaves of bread makes me feel right at home.
Of course I’m going to tell you to try their Quiche. Most of the Quiche are available in mini versions which makes it easy if you want to try a few. As much as I love the Quiche Lorraine (Ham & Cheese) I could also make a strong case for the Goat Cheese & Mushroom being what you should eat.
There are Paninis and Sandwiches on the menu as well. Their version of the Croque-Monsier was a perfectly crafted Ham & Cheese Sandwich. I didn’t inquire about a Croque-Madame (same sandwich topped with an egg) but I’m sure it’s on their ultra secret locals menu.
The Desserts here are beautiful to just sit and look at. I refused to hurt the Strawberry Napoleon that Droolius ordered. He had no problem cutting it and in the process squeezing all the creme out of it. The Tropézienne that we shared fared way better. It was like having a liquored up Creme Burger.
Don’t let the parking situation (limited) deter you from stopping in at Buena Vista Deli. It’s worth the extra effort to come in here and grab some Desserts and Fresh Bread. And some of those eggy little pie shaped things I love so much too.
