Today I read with great sadness that Bakery Bar is officially closing their SE Water Avenue shop, to focus on their NE Glisan location. While their decision makes sense and I’m excited to welcome the new tenant of 1028 SE Water Avenue, Bunk Bar, I will mourn the loss of one of my favorite lunch spots. So today, I propose that in honor of bittersweet endings & beginnings, you go to Bakery Bar and relish a Ham & Brie sandwich with sweet spicy mustard and a Millionaire’s Tart with bourbon caramel and bittersweet chocolate. And be sure to get one of each shortbread cookie to go.
