I had the most delightful lunch today at Macrina Bakery on 1st Ave. in Belltown, Seattle. With an extended lunch menu, there's lots of variety to choose from, and if you save room some of the best pastries in town!
I had the Verdura Ciabatta Sandwich, which for $10.95, comes with choice of Soup du Jour, Organic Greens or Meze Salad. I had the soup, which was an outstanding beet and carrot soup. It was amazing, the color intensely vibrant, as you can see by the photo. I'd like to try and make it at home. The staff was friendly, and before our main meal, the server gave us some superb Macrina freshly baked bread along side a plate of olive oil infused with thyme, for dipping.
I highly recommend this place for all appetites and food enthusiasts!
