I visited my hometown of Peterborough, Ontario and my family stopped in at our favourite lunch/breakfast place – The Planet Bakery (sorry I couldn’t resist the cliché in the title!). It’s the only place my dad feels comfortable eating since he can’t eat eggs or wheat. Good thing I love it!
Their menu has been the same for years as well as their Mexican 50s kitchen theme – all the tables are a yard-sale collection of these art-deco tables which I love. It’s also located in a historic building so there are nice surprises like an old vault door behind the counter.
They serve Black River juice there – if you’ve never had it, it’s incredibly thick – I usually split it with water. Marissa is enjoying it!
For lunch I almost always get the brie cranberry sandwich on cheddar potato bread – there couldn’t be a better combination – better yet they bake all their bread in-house.
My dad always gets the chili (out of necessity mostly) – I think they added jalapeños to make it more Mexican.
My mom always gets “The Mexican” aka. a Mexican-themed omlette with that awesome potato cheddar bread on the side. Check out that fresh salsa on top!
Marissa & my sis got french toast. Marissa’s was stuffed with brie – they have a serious obsession with the stuff here! I’m not complaining.
They also make the best cookies:
I once knew someone who went here every day for lunch – loyalty like that is the best review.
