I am a Rockland County native and though may have some hometown bias, I would say it is definitely worth a stop. The onion bulkie rolls (which you rarely if ever have the opportunity to get fresh out of the oven) and other rolls are excellent additions to any gathering. The bagels are fair and are really better after being toasted at home (which may be a big indictment).
There are a variety of other breads and I have had mixed results with these. I am very partial to the onion rye and have been disappointed in the focaccia. Sullivan Street is my favorite bread baker and while Rockland does not reach that standard, it is good and worth the stop.
The rainbow cookies are consistently fresh and moist and would be my chief recommendation at the pastry counter.
Does anyone know of such a place exists?
We have Loteria Grill, which I believe is Mexican. Everything but Chinese is of interest.
My girlfriend and I (late 20s/early 30s) are heading to LA/Orange County for a wedding next month and we are just trying to finalize our eating itinerary. We are coming from Manhattan and both have been in LA before and are open from the finest dining to a roadside shack. We have a rental car and are willing to travel. Any comments or suggestions are welcome, particularly with regard to cookies, soft pretzels, ice cream and other quick bites as our sit-down meals are pretty well accounted for.
