[Continued from A Few Southern California Breakfasts From Our Sisters Trip (1)]
Another day when driving from SLO to Santa Barbara, we stopped at Bob’s Well Bread Bakery known for his hand-made artisanal bread. Good bread is something New Yorkers are quite used to, an anomaly in Southern California Proprietor/Boulanger Bob Oswaks was serving that day at this gas station turned bakery. We arrived mid-morning at this order-at-the-counter cafe/bakery and sadly many of the pastries including the Kouign-Amann ($5) that I had read about were sold out. The current cardamom scone ($4) was how I like it, not overly sweet. Also available are sandwiches such as hummus and veggies on their ficelle (similar to a baguette but much thinner) along with a side salad ($9.75).
