Rockenwagner is just between 3rd and 4th street on Arizona Ave. in Santa Monica, a perfect place for a grab and go lunch if you happen to be shopping, or strolling, along the Promenade. It's easy to spot as the sidewalk tables are shaded by orange umbrellas and lined up on a grassy strip outside the bakery/cafe. A lineup of freshly prepared pretzels, scones and brioche welcome you upon entering... Alongside the danishes, crossaints, muffins, tarts, cookies, etc. The popular soups, salads, sandwiches and wraps are all pre-made and displayed in the deli case.
I always like to try a variety -the more, the better- so my mom and I decided to try a few of the mini sandwiches. Chris didn't like that idea, so he did his own thing... Take a look!
