Oak Park, MI –   As I travel Oakland County in search of news, I also like to let my taste buds explore.  Recently I had a craving for an egg salad sandwich, so I asked oc115 readers on Facebook where in Oakland County I might find a delicious one.

The repeated favorite was Bread Basket Deli.  They have several locations in Metro Detroit, but I headed to the one in Oak Park

This was my first visit, but the menu was so intriguing I will undoubtedly be back.

Turns out it is a house specialty that is made fresh to order.

As far as egg salad goes, it seems pretty simple: more creamy than mustardy or vinegary, and without “the crunchy stuff” like celery or onion. The real difference, I think, is the freshness.

So if you are ever in the mood for a good egg salad sandwich, now you know where to get one.

Breadbasket Deli is located at Lincoln Shopping Center, 26052 Greenfield Rd, Oak Park, MI 48237.
