If you’re looking for the very best sandwich you can experience, you need to try Croque (it’s pronounced “crock” as in crocodile). This small sandwich shop makes some of the tastiest, fresh-from-the-oven baguette sandwiches you’ll ever find and I’m not being paid to say that.
The menu is separated by country of origin, and you can choose between French, German, Italian, and traditional American sandwiches. Croque also offers a variety of soups, salads, and breakfast selections.
The food takes about 15 minutes to prepare and when they bring it out it is served hot on a sandwich board. The sandwich is literally dripping with sauces. You can choose between white garlic and dill sauces and we found the lettuce and all ingredients to be fresh.
We suggest the Paris, or the Croque Special sandwiches and combined with any soup it’s a great deal.
How much? About $5 for a six inch (that’s plenty) or if you are really hungry, a twelve inch is only about $8.
Where? Southwest corner of Scottsdale Rd. and Thunderbird Rd. and also at Camelback Rd. and 40th St. (at the base of an office complex). If you want more info, head over to www.croques.com where you can see the menu.
Atmosphere? Sidewalk sandwich shop.
When? Open for breakfast and lunch, although known for its lunch menu.
