I rarely head out to the Claremont area of California, but when I heard of the customizable egg sliders from Some Crust Bakery, I had to drive out there and see for myself. The bakery is divided into two sections. First there is the cafe, where diners can sit, relax, and enjoy their morning coffee. On the other side of the wall, there is the bakery itself where folks heading to work order their quick sugar, coffee, and pastry fixes.
“I found out about Some Crust by word of mouth,” said Maria Nogoy, a resident of the Claremont area. “I went to school in Claremont. People used to talk about how delicious their brownies and egg sliders were. I like it because it’s fresh and has a small town feel. They have delectable goodies.”
Customers who order the sliders fill out a sheet specifying what ingredients they want for their egg sandwiches. You get your choices of breads, two fillings, and one sauce for $2. Any additional add ons are a little extra (no more than $1 though!). For my first slider, I got Sourdough bread, sauteed mushrooms, spinach, and a pesto sauce. I also added applewood bacon for 75 cents. Cause, y’know, it’s bacon.
The second slider was made up of Rosemary bread, red onions, swiss cheese, with a garlic aioli, and avocado added on. Both of sandwich combinations were incredibly savory. Finally, I ended my breakfast adventure with a fresh Strawberry Cream Puff.
As I said earlier, I rarely head out to the Claremont area. So it was definitely an experience because I keep forgetting how eerily nice and friendly the locals are. Everyone says “Good Morning!” or goes out of their way to hold doors open for you. Not something I’m used to.
Some Crust Bakery is a just a little drive from the 10 freeway off Indian Hill and very much worth stopping by to try at least once.Some Crust Bakery 119 Yale Ave
