Pastrami reuben sandwich – Bouchon Bakery

Pastrami reuben sandwich - Bouchon Bakery
With sauerkraut and swiss cheese on marbled rye bread. $9.50
Bouchon Bakery, Yountville CA

This sandwich was actually really good, and I think it’s a much better value than the stupid quiche that you had to wait 20 minutes for! They probably could have piled on a few more slices of pastrami though.

To go bag. You kind of wanna run away from this place after the crazy wait!

Ham and asparagus quiche – Bouchon Bakery

Ham and asparagus quiche - Bouchon Bakery
With greens. $9
Bouchon Bakery, Yountville CA

A nine dollar quiche that I had to wait 20 minutes for in an uncomfortable, dizzying mad-house? No thank you. I’ve learned my lesson. The quiche was tasty (probably because there was a pound of butter in it) but I couldn’t get over the wait and stress. If you must visit Bouchon Bakery, I would suggest not getting anything that needs to be heated up or prepared in any way. You’ll regret it.

Ham and cheese croissant – Bouchon Bakery

Ham and cheese croissant - Bouchon Bakery
Bouchon Bakery, Yountville CA

Ok, this is the stupidest thing I have ever seen. Bouchon Bakery presses the shit out of their croissant sandwiches so you end up with a flat, condensed buttery mess! Isn’t the joy of eating a croissant the ability to appreciate the airy layers and flaky exterior? Well, they’ve decided that eating a hard puck of food is preferable. Fail!
