This summer Chef JJ introduced a fantastic new twist on our standard cafe sandwich fare: the tartine. He brought us not one, but two, light and delicious varieties, both of which are vegetarian (if you eat NW eggs and albacore tuna, that is). Tartines are defined as “A French open-faced sandwich, especially one with a rich or complex spread.” Our tartines are no different, served open faced on grilled french baguette, with lush spreads and paired with a textural salad of baby greens and frisee.
The egg salad tartine perfectly balances the rich, creamy egg with crisp celery and refreshing lemon and chives.
The tuna tartine features wild caught albacore tuna, smoky and sweet calabrian chilis, salty kalamata olives, bright shaved fennel and lemony caper aioli.
So what are you waiting for? Lunch on the boardwalk awaits your arrival. Bon Appétit!

Summer may have taken its time getting here, but now the outdoors beckon. Picnic with us at Lovejoy Bakers! Dine on the boardwalk, take a Lovejoy sack lunch to Jamison Square, or pick up a cookie and stroll around the Pearl District. May we also suggest an icy, watermelon-guava lemonade? (Fresh-squeezed of course.)
Over 6,000,000 served! Just kidding. The Lovejoy Deluxe, pictured above, is one of — if not the — most popular menu item. Here’s why: perfectly fried egg, thick-cut bacon, Bleu D’Auvergne cheese, and tarragon-dressed frisee on a freshly baked ciabatta roll. Served from 6am to 8pm.
Speaking of Deluxe, this is our ample (understatement) Lovejoy Salad. Viridian Farms greens are topped with house-roasted turkey breast, San Daniele prosciutto, assorted cured salame, kalamata olives, and a perfectly soft-boiled egg.
So whether you visit us by bike or streetcar, by foot, motorscooter, hybrid or tour bus, come hungry and prepared to relax. There is so much to enjoy at Lovejoy Bakers.
