Ham and cheese croissant at Starbucks

Ham and cheese croissant at Starbucks

Last week, I wrote about the truly horrible idea which is the seared steak and egg wrap at Starbucks. Seriously, just say no. This morning, though, I found myself in Starbucks again and decided to make another go at one of their breakfast sandwiches. I tried the ham and cheese croissant, and it was much better. The picture above is what it looks like in the display case. Continue reading “Ham and cheese croissant at Starbucks”

I got the chance to try the new breakfast menu today, and I think I found a new favorite breakfast spot.
