Common Bond Bakery (Montrose)

Opened yesterday, Tuesday and I'm really looking forward to visiting!  News crew is here, not sure what channel.  I walk in and love the interior.  Tons of sunlight, airy, bright!  I love a bar around the perimeter of the cafĂ© too, somewhere I can set up shop and work.  I'm standing in line and it doesn't look like they have a ton of options.   Maybe a handful of pastries...but they do look amazing!  With the recommendation of my helper, I get the chocolate croissant and the bosoft.  I also want the cheese Danish, as it's my favorite...but they're out.  I get to the cashier, order a vanilla almond milk latte, and they are out of almond milk...it's 9:30...AM!  The line is long and cashiers slow, so far, I'm not having the greatest experience....obviously they're still working out the kinks...

I sit and have the chocolate croissant...amazing!  So flakey, delicious, and the chocolate was off the charts good!  The salted caramel macaroon I ordered wasn't in my take away box...hm.  I do stay till lunch and order the grilled cheese and soup.  O...M...G...the grilled cheese sandwich is amazing!  The bread, the cheese...wow!  The food really makes up for all the kinks...wow...the bread is out of this world!  I mean it's all very simple tasting, but the quality is amazing.  I'm really impressed.  I can't remember the last time I had so much bread...that bread...and I can't remember the last time I had an entire sandwich in one sitting...that bread...mm mm mm...

Ugh...I ate too much bread.  I had the regular eclair and was very distracted by the fact that there was chocolate cream inside instead of the regular creme and can't say I liked it, but dang that chocolate creme was some good chocolate.  I ordered another salted caramel macaroon and wow...that was absolutely delicious.  So yummy!  Sweet, tasted and looked like real caramel, so so very good.  I also had a bite of the chocolate chip cookies...wow...now this is a real chocolate chip cookie, unlike the that cookie everyone at Tiny's raves about.  This whole bakery is just top notch!  Everything I tasted was A+ quality.  Very very good, I'm really impressed!

I also got to meet Roy, the owner/chef...he sure knows his food!
