While the Carousel bakery is famous for it's peameal bacon sandwich, it has many other tasty dishes. The oversized sandwiches cost very little and are great to share.
This is a must have when visiting St. Lawrence market... even if the price has gone up over the last year. The peameal bacon sandwich with egg and cheese is delicious and super filling for breakfast. Make sure to arrive before 11AM because they aren't sold afterwards!
Had the peameal, it's packed with flavour, the spicy horseradish was a great compliment. Extremely cheap and perfect for a quick bite!!
So I tried the peameal bacon sandwich because it is apparently the best sandwich in the world and worshipped by Emeril, Guy Fieri, and a ton of other random celebrities. Overall impression was MEH. I don't understand the hype. The bacon is fat and juicy, but that's basically it. Not a place I would recommend.
