When my heart was set on a hot delicious chicken and vegetable pie from Cornucopia, I was sadden to see that it was closed on Mondays (I thought it was too good to be true that we got a park right out the front). My brain quickly flickered to plan B – Autolyse was a bakery that I hadn’t tried but had heard wonderful things about their bread and was around the corner near Elk and Pea.
I was a little disappointed to see that there was no hot food to go (and the roast beef sandwiches were sold out) but I opted for a Salmon caper sandwich on thick crusty bread and of course I grabbed a chocolate croissant and a escargot to go also.
For a person who doesn’t usually buy sandwiches, this one was ok, I wasn’t a fan on the salty capers that they used and I wasn’t overly impressed with the chocolate croissant either but what blew me away was the escargot! The pastry was crisp and tasty, the sultanas were plump and sweet, if I knew it was that good I would have just bought three of those for lunch.
I wouldn’t mind sitting down and browsing their menu a little longer next time (but car parking is so hard in Braddon!) after all everyone that was dining in seemed happy, even if it’s to get some more escargot.
