Man, I could live on bread alone at La Chatelaine. This particular munch comes on the place's beautiful baguette at dinnertime, but only during lunch is it offered on a special mini-boule-like loaf that's a joy to eat.

What and how much: Brie and Prosciutto Roll ($8 at lunch with salad or soup)

Where: La Chatelaine French Bakery and Bistro, a superior bakery with crafty yet inexpensive French-inflected food laid out cafeteria-style

Why: Because simplicity can be hard, but here it's on a roll

Eat it: Man, I could live on bread alone at La Chatelaine. This particular munch comes on the place's beautiful baguette at dinnertime, but only during lunch is it offered on a special mini-boule-like loaf that's a joy to eat.

And it needs to be, because this stripped-down sandwich is basically dressed-up bread and butter. Its not-to-be-missed yeasty roll has a lovely crust with an unforgettable chewiness that supports thinly shaved (if not particularly profound) prosciutto.

The brie on it kicks up the butter's richness and points up the prosciutto's salinity and hint of gaminess. Wrapped in that fantastic package, this sublime little sandwich is a small blast of Franco-love.

Sidekicks: Comes with a winning little Caesar salad or an excellent homemade soup.
