After discovering Con Pane late last year, it’s become my “go to” place for Artisan bread. We recently had a few visits, stopping by for some sweet treats and a quick meal.
Almost Grilled Cheese
I’ve heard really good things about their almost grilled cheese sandwich. On a recent trip, we got a half order with mocha, a chocolate chip cookie, and a chocolate bread roll as an afternoon “snack.”
The cheese sandwich was pretty good, filled with gorgonzola and creamy brie cheese and served on freshly baked and toasted rosemary bread. Unlike a traditional grilled cheese sandwich, the exterior is not pan fried with butter, but the warm melted cheese gives it an almost grilled cheese sensation.
I had been really excited to try the chocolate chip cookie, but it didn’t quite taste as good as I had imagined. I found the texture a tad too soft and the chocolate flavor not bold enough.
Pearl Sugar Brioche
On a recent visit with CC, I discovered these individual sized sweet brioche rolls topped with sugar pearls.
Chocolate Bread Roll
I really love the chocolate bread at Con Pane and the rolls are mini versions of their chocolate bread. They are priced at only $.89. Unfortunately, the rolls are only available on weekends. If you are here on the weekend, I definitely recommend getting the chocolate bread roll.
Chocolate Brioche Twist
I brought this one home for Mr. K during my visit with CC. I didn’t actually try this one, but Mr. K seemed to like it.
