One killer breakfast

Sheesh. Is Clinton Street Baking Company really so good as to warrant a line at 10 a.m. on a Thursday? Try as I might, I still have never gotten in for breakfast.

So, never one to accept defeat, I took a banana chocolate chip muffin to go.

But then I stumbled upon the lovely little Arlo & Esme, which had plenty of sunlight and free space on a weekday morning.

And thick slabs of chocolate banana bread from Blue Sky Bakery.

Muffin or bread?

Bread of muffin?

Because you know I had both.

The bread was heavy and dense, moist and chocolaty. A breakfast bomb if there ever was one.

The muffin was lighter but almost even naughtier. With gooey bits of banana and rich, melty chocolate chunks, it was the perfect companion to the uber thick cake.

(Breakfast like this is not recommended for Sweet Freak novices.)

I love the way you descibred the "slab" of banana bread. I would opt for the bread :)

Both were amazing in their own ways. I noticed all kinds of banana breads and muffins around town. But sorta had to put the kabosh on sampling after awhile. After all, the cookies and cupcakes and peanut butter bars beckoned...
