Con Pane is my favorite spot in San Diego for French breads.
Upon entering, you are greeted with a display case of fresh breads. In addition to breads, they also offer a cafe menu and some sweets too.
I crammed as much bread into my body as possible when I went to Paris this past summer. One of my favorite memories is visiting this small bakery nearby our hotel, ordering a bunch of fresh baked breads, and just strolling through the streets of Paris munching on a loaf of cheese bread.
On this particular visit we bought some breads to-go.
I absolutely adore epi bread, which is shaped like stalks of wheat. They are like tiny french bread loaves, though with less of the soft interior and more of the hard and crunchy exterior.
The last big loaf of chocolate bread was purchased while I waited in line, so I settled for some mini ones. I’ve been wary of chocolate breads, but I enjoyed this one. The bread itself was mildly sweet and there was a good amount of chocolate stuffed inside.
Gruyere and Chive
This was DH’s favorite. I was hoping we might be able to replicate the experience of the cheese bread we had in Paris, but this one wasn’t the same. It was really good though and this is great for making sandwiches or just eating it on its own.
We were too full this visit to order anything from the cafe section. But we’ll definitely be back again soon.
