BF and I went to our local gourmet grocery store - Balducci's - for breakfast this morning. We gave it mixed reviews.
On the plus side, they serve Illy Cafe - so what could be better, I ask you?!. On the downside, everything at Balducci's is gourmet. Unfortunately, there are some things in life that just shouldn't be made in a gourmet fashion. An Egg McMuffin is one of them. Sure we had delicious English muffins, finest quality eggs, cheese that was to-die-for and scrumptous smoked bacon... but somehow it was too much. I must admit we probably would have been better off with an Egg McMuffin at McD's. I'll stick to Balducci's for the coffee, though. I also enjoy their soup and salad bar at lunch. Of course, their gourmet prepared food for take-out or catering it out of this world. So go there for gourmet... not fast food.
