Today on the Bite Tonight: Cornwall Bakery Located on Kercheval Rd. in Grosse Pointe Park, MI, Cornwall Bakery offers all natural, fresh pastries, Artisan breads, cakes and tortes. You can also find gorgeous European style desserts, wedding cakes, homemade soups, salads, and sandwiches. In order to celebrate St. Patty’s Day, the office treated us to delicious corned beef sandwiches from Cornwall Bakery. See how they ranked. Corned Beef Sandwich: Thinly sliced corned beef piled between two slices of freshly baked Rye bread topped with sauerkraut and brown mustard. First off, you could really tell the bread was fresh. It was that perfect marriage of a chewy outer crust and a soft inside. The corned beef was tender and delicious. The sauerkraut and mustard topped off this solid sandwich. My only complaint was that there wasn’t more! Cornwall Bakery

Since this sandwich was delicious, I know everything else at Cornwall Bakery must be. Stop by and see for yourself! I can’t wait to try the rest of the menu. I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday! And I hope everyone gorged themselves with corned beef and cabbage! Happy St Patrick’s Day!

Bill's Ham Place

My brother was in town for a couple days so we decided to get breakfast. We wanted something quick so we stopped in to this local dive breakfast/coney place in Lincoln Park. I remember stopping in to Bill’s Ham Place located on Southfield Rd, growing up and always liked it. Check out how this trip turned out.

Service: 4 out of 5 stars

Quality/Taste: 2 stars

Atmosphere: 4 stars (Friendly & authentic coney feel)

Price: 3 stars

Wow factor: 2

Western Omelette: Huge helping of eggs, ham, green pepper, onion, and cheese. This was enough for two and everything you would expect from a coney breakfast. Pretty spot on.

Tip: Order the hash browns well done.


I went with the Corned Beef Sandwich: Thinly sliced corned beef on an onion roll. I added a slice of Swiss cheese. It was good, but unlike the omelette, the portion was lousy. I decided to order it because it was marked “Famous” on the menu. More like disappointing. It still tasted good, but I scarfed it in seconds. For around $7, it was not worth it (the cheese was an extra 80 cents).


Check out what Ma made for breakfast a couple days later. Best of both worlds:

Corned Beef Hash with a fried egg: A great idea for leftover corned beef and it’s way better than the stuff out of the can. Brown potatoes and saute with onions and corned beef and top with a fried egg. When you break the yolk it creates a delicious, rich sauce that melts all over the potatoes.


OK, back to Bill’s. The waitress was friendly and made conversation the whole time in between greeting and waiting on her other tables. Bill’s Ham Place is a great breakfast and coney spot, but if you’re looking for a huge, stacked deli sandwich that they are “famous” for, try Hops & Barley or Wheat & Rye.
