Grand Central Bakery & Cafe Restaurant Review: Grand Central's baked goods are some of the best in the city, and while it’s a supplier for many restaurants, those products are never fresher or in greater variety than what's available here at the source. Expect pies, muffins, quiches, scones, croissants, hand pies, whole-grain cinnamon rolls and biscuits with jam centers. Rustic breads provide ballast for many tasty sandwiches, such as vegetable grinders, turkey and chutney, and tuna salad made with wild-caught albacore. Breakfast sandwiches are also winners, offering combinations of eggs, breakfast meats and cheeses. Healthy soups along with salads, such as one made with local lettuces and a buttermilk dressing, are possibilities, too. Seasonal fruit pies are recommended. Puff pastry and ready-to-use pie crust dough offer an opportunity to re-create Grand Central delights at home.
