Clinton Street Baking Company

After a red-eye flight from Phoenix aided by some Ambien and a short nap after arriving at home, Kelly and I made our way to the Clinton Street Baking Company. The CSBC has garnered a ton of great reviews and everyone tends to rave about it. One bite of the thick and fluffy banana walnut pancakes coated in maple butter sauce, which at least 50% of the patrons seem to get, was reason enough why. They are some of the most delicious pancakes I’ve ever had.

Kelly’s buttermilk biscuit, egg & bacon sandwich with tomato relish was less of a hit. The biscuit is just too big for what’s in the middle. And it would be better with sausage instead of bacon. It was still good though and I would head back to get some biscuits to go, loading them up with honey and butter at home (and maybe some homemade sausage?).
