There is obvious value here when you opt for one of the sandwiches so the real question is how do they taste.
I'm a big fan of their Pike's Place drip but normally pass on a pastry or sandwich with it. However, the artisan bacon sandwich looked good sitting in the display case and I decided to give it a shot this morning. Glad I did because this was very good as far as fast food (Dunkin/Starbucks included) breakfast sandwiches go.
Starbucks describes the sandwich as a flavorful bakery-style sandwich made with a parmesan egg frittata, four smoked bacon slices, and Gouda cheese on a perfectly-baked hand-shaped artisan roll. The roll was the real star.
