Oo-la-la, there’s a new sandwich at Blackbird Cafe! Imagine you’re indulging in a French delicacy with the new Brie, Ham, and Pear sandwich. Can you guess what the main ingredients are? Fresh pears, sliced ham, and sweet brie cheese are layered onto a french square, with a helping of arugula for an added crunch.

This sandwich makes for a symphony of flavors combined into one mouth-watering meal. Salty and sweet mix together with the smoky ham, creamy brie, and juicy pears, really making those taste buds zing. Several of our Lifers sampled the new sandwich and they are singing its praises. Here are their reviews:

“You know, I’m a sucker for anything that combines savory flavors with sweet ones, especially when it comes to meats, fruit, and cheeses (I could probably live off of charcuterie boards, don’t be judgin’ me). So this sammie really did it for me! Pears and brie? Absolutely. I’ll take 12 sandwiches, please,” said Kayla Belec, Contributing Editor.

“I’ve always loved brie with grapes or apples, but I’ve never thought to put it with pears. The earthy taste of brie and the sweetness of the pear was a perfect match to the savory ham. This is a good Sunday Brunch kind of sandwich for sure,” said Stacey Kellogg, Editorial Director.

“I loved how creamy and smokey the brie was, it offsets the sweetness of the pear and saltiness of the ham. It was delicious,” said Stephanie Swearington, Director of Operations and HR.

“I’ve had brie, ham, and apricot, but I think the pear was a good idea. It added the perfect amount of sweetness,” said Naphtalia Ruth, Executive Assistant. 

Blackbird offers many other delicious and tempting treats, from salads and sandwiches to cookies and scones. It’s a great place to stop in for a quick treat or meal, or to linger for while with friends or a good book. And did we mention the delicious coffee and tea options? No matter your preference, Blackbird Cafe has a delicious drink for everyone. (I highly recommend the apple chai, a tasty mixture of chai and apple juice topped with apple pie spices.) Don’t just take our word for it, though! Stop into Blackbird Cafe today and taste this delicious new sandwich (or any of their tasty offerings) for yourself!
