French Meadow Bakery and Cafe

5 out of 5 stars

An oasis in a sea of horrible airport food. Yes, that’s my opening line. After traveling a bit for business lately I actually decided to research in advance where I would eat. Luckily French Meadow was not too far out of my way. So when was the last time you went to a self service counter at an airport eatery and were greeted with a nice pleasantry like “How are you doing today?” Something so small does make a difference after being crammed in uncomfy seats for two hours and getting ready to do so again. Service here was great.

I ordered a lovely roast beef and havarti sandwhich which was warmed up for me in the little oven and I also couldn’t resist getting some amazing tomato bisque and a to-die-for cheesecake brownie. The brownie I saved for later as a pick me up after I got to the final destination (which helped me forget the yucky room service dinner). This wasn’t super cheap, I recall something like $15 for the lot including drink. But it was sooo worth it. If I wasn’t hungry I’d still make a point out of going there to get a baked good from their large case.
