I bit into my sandwich and instantly felt as if I had died and gone to heaven. The sandwich had many different flavors that contributed to the greatness of this holy sandwich.

A quaint little shop on Commercial Street, Rosemont Market and Bakery served up a masterpiece. As you enter the shop, a variety of scents make the nose perk up. In the front of the market, it was fruit and vegetables galore, along with cold drinks and pre-made salads. If you pushed the door open to the deli in the back, meats and cheeses appeared in front of one’s eyes. There was also a veggie sandwich, which I selected, and a meat sandwich. I purchased a bag of chips and the sandwich, and it cost $7.69. I had a $10 budget, which I didn’t go over, but the sandwich cost a pricey $6.50. The sandwich was made of lemon artichoke pesto mayo, tomato, carrot, cucumber, and mixed greens, on a thick baguette.

I found a patch of grass across the street to enjoy my delicious sandwich. Although the bread was a bit difficult to chew, the range of flavors in the sandwich overpowered this small disappointment. The vegetables tasted fresh and ripe, and the handmade mayo was creamy, flavorful, and the obvious star of the sandwich. The crispy, lightly salted potato chips I had selected paired well with the sandwich. A swig of iced tea borrowed from a friend rounded out the scrumptious meal. Despite the fact that it was a little expensive, if you have $10 in your pocket and a healthy appetite, consider stopping by Rosemont for a satisfying lunch hour.
