A Sandwich A Day: Tuna at Almondine Bakery

While you may be lured to Almondine Bakery for the sweets, visions of marzipan dancing in your head, you should stay for lunch. More specifically, the roundly satisfying Tuna Sandwich ($7.25) with Swiss cheese, lettuce, and tomato. Its poppy seed bun walks the perfect line between crusty and chewy, and the tuna salad is so light you'd think they whipped it. Count on a bakery to transform ordinary Albacore tuna into a sandwich filling with soufflé-like texture—this is quite possibly the only time you'll see the words tuna and ethereal in the same sentence.
