One of my favorite treats in the world is also one of the simplest--homemade bread with homemade jam. Just last week I discovered that my favorite lunch spot in Salt Lake--Les Madeleines--also sells the homemade country french bread they use on their delicious sandwiches. I immediately picked up their very last loaf and thoroughly enjoyed it over the next few days with the homemade triple berry jam I also left with that day. This simple snack sums up why I love eating at this little cafe/patisserie so much--the food is thoughtfully prepared with the best ingredients, the ambiance is very casual, and I have access to a delicious treat after consuming a delicious lunch. There aren't many places that offer such high-quality food in an unpretentious setting such as this; and as a mother of 3, I appreciate that very much.
If there are any leftover loafs of country french bread, they are put out daily at 2:30 p.m. If you'd like to place a special order, you are welcome to do so. Just make sure you call 3 days in advance, as that is how long it takes to make a single loaf.
