I first wrote about The Poached Pair a year ago. It was my first stop after officially starting my summer break and their pastries were fantastic!
Last week, with The Hustler being back in town, I suggested it as a meet up spot for lunch. I had read that they sold focaccia sandwiches and wanted to try one. The Hustler had been finished up pharmacist school in Arizona for the better part of the last few years, and had yet to try this place. Perfect.
I don’t think they always have sandwiches, but they are very much up to date on social media so you can check their Twitter for info on what is available that day, or you can call ahead and ask. On this day they had freshly made veggie sandwiches which were fresh and great. I have never ordered a veggie sandwich in my life (what can I say…I love meat) but I ate it all (minus tomato of course).
I paired mine with iced tea and he opted for coffee. The Poached Pair actually uses beans from SilverLake’s own Cafecito Organico, which is pretty interesting. After eating our sandwiches, we decided to pastry…and pastry we did.
Parmesan Thyme Cracker
Red Velvet Cupake + Mocha Cupcake
(the frosting was perfectly light)
(best I have ever had in SCV)
(not to be confused with Macaron – different spelling)
Coffee Crumb Cake
So as I leave you with this picture of my sandwich, I must say that if you live in Santa Clarita and have yet to make it out to The Poached Pair, I’m not sure what you are waiting for. I’m amazed how many of my friends have either never heard of it or have never been. Go check out the pastries, have a scone, hang out, maybe eat a sandwich, and you can thank me later. It is located behind The Egg Plantation with plenty of parking, only a few doors down from Brave New World. I would suggest going early since they tend to sell out of their baked goods.
