Madame, You’re Beautiful!

The croque madame at Bluebird Cafe is a thing of beauty, says Bob Brooks–good bread, good prosciutto, good creamy mornay sauce. And not too big (you know, French women don’t get fat); just the right size for a super-rich sandwich. The egg may be cooked on the firm side, though. Beautifully ripe tomatoes and fruit come on the side.

All the sandwiches are excellent, adds Dommy–a lot like those at Surfas’ cafe (see also ChowNews #211), but more variety. The grilled vegetable sandwich is truly tasty. Plus, delicious cupcakes–chica recommends red velvet and carrot cake.
