I would say it only took us about 5 months to finally make it to try Crumb on Parchment.

The reason it took us so long was because the hours are 8:30 a.m. thru 5:30 p.m., Monday thru Friday. We here at thefood-e.com have other jobs and pretty much work the hours Crumb on Parchment was open.

So during these long 2 weeks of holidays, we had some time off and knew we needed to go to Crumb on Parchment.

Crumb on Parchment is a bakery/café from Michelle Bernstein. It is located in the Design District right across the street from Michelle’s other restaurant, Sra. Martinez. Crumb is setup in the middle of this mall type building. Think of it as a really good food spot at the mall and we mean really good.

Crumb on Parchment has 10 sandwiches, breakfast items, salads, soups, and of course baked goods. We decided to order a couple items off the menu and split them. We ordered the Hot Split Pea soup, Chicken Salad Sandwich on Ciabatta bread with the side of the couscous salad, and the Pulled Rotisserie Chicken Sandwich.

The hot split pea soup wasn’t like your average split pea soup. It is very good and filling. If you’re a fan of split pea soup, you will like the different spin on Crumb’s version of it.

The Chicken Salad Sandwich was awesome. Fresh homemade chicken salad was the star of this sandwich. The crunchy bread mixed with the homemade, creamy chicken salad sandwich made it a winner. The side of couscous salad threw us off guard. Not expecting it to be great, it was beyond that. The couscous salad was a great refreshing side dish. Light, tasty, and lemon-y is a great way to describe this dish. We highly recommend this as a side with your sandwich.

Finally the real winner out of the bunch: the Pulled Rotisserie Chicken Sandwich.

The Pulled Rotisserie Chicken Sandwich comes with roasted pears, caramelized onions, arugula and goat cheese. The sandwich is creamy, smokey, tangy, and crunchy. All these flavors in your mouth at the same time… now that’s a party. The goat cheese gives it that creamy and tangy taste. The smokiness flavor comes from the pulled chicken. The crunchiness comes from the awesome Ciabatta bread. There was no question this was our favorite sandwich. We promise you, you won’t be disappointed with this sandwich.

We were pretty full after all that, but we knew we had to try a cookie or brownie or something from the baked goods on the counter. They have everything from brownies to cheesecakes; all their baked goods look amazing and homemade. We decided to try a chocolate chip cookie. Let’s just say, we should have gotten two or three or maybe even four.

If your looking for a great lunch spot in the Design District, do us a favor and just head to Crumb on Parchment. This place is amazing and worth the long wait it took us to finally try this place out. You will not be disappointed. We loved it so much; we have already gone a second time.
