Highway 128 is a scenic two-lane highway most traversed by locals in flat bed trucks, tourists taking in the wineries of Anderson Valley and cyclists, both amateur and advanced, out for a breathtaking ride. Jimtown Store serves all riders of 128 alike, with its delicious menu, serene setting and I-never-knew-I-needed-this-but-now-I-gotta-have-it marketplace.

When we first started dating, DH used to send me the sweetest letters written at Jimtown where he enjoyed a baked egg sandwich in the middle of a long ride (bike ride).
My first impression of the place was from his writings so naturally I insisted we go my first time visiting him up north, years ago. It quickly became a favorite of ours, so much so that we replicated the baked egg sandwiches for the entire family at Christmas Brunch last year.
The baked egg sandwich has a simple layer of house made romesco on each slice of rosemary foccacia. Sweet and spicy pickles are the perfect compliment. The option of bacon or ham is available but I prefer the sandwich without. It is delightful for breakfast with a latte or lunch with a local Pinot and well worth the long drive...or ride!

I have every faith the entire menu at Jimtown is stunning but I must confess I've never managed to venture past the baked egg sandwich...it's just too good!
