4 weeks ago Jeremy and I were driving around. Hungry. That is never a good thing. When I am hungry, look out. At the time, I wanted soup. We were driving around in the Minneapolis/Edina area, and stumbled upon the Franklin Street Bakery's new location in Edina.
They had a sign outside that said, "Bakery, lunch". Sounded like a place with good soup. And at the very least, good cookies, so it was worth a shot.
We walked in, and asked what kind of soup they had. Unfortunately, they did not have soup that day. But I was too hungry to leave and go elsewhere, so I stared aimlessly at the wall and saw the following sign.
I mean, that is quite the claim. World's best anything. And honestly, at $3.00, I was prepared to have a good laugh over this thing.
We sit down, and 5 minutes later our World's Best Egg Sandwiches arrive. We chuckle, continuing to laugh about this claim. We simultaneously take a bite of our sandwiches, and it was as though the world hit the pause button and birds started to sing. I think I actually shed a tear. A tear of pure bliss.
Turns out, this really is the World's Best Egg Sandwich. No lie. In all the world. You may shed a food joy tear too. It is the most delicious, amazing, egg sandwich you will ever eat. Go now. Get one. Bring Kleenex for the potential food joy tears.
The only downside, they have the smallest water cups in the whole wide world. So the sign should really say, World's Best Egg Sandwich, and World's Smallest Water Cups.
