Mike and Pattys- Bay Village and a trip to Costco

cassoulady Sep 21, 2009 07:03 AM

I stopped into Mike and Pattys on Sunday for a breakfast sandwich. It was even better than the last time I was there. The place was bustling and there was quite a wait for a sandwich, but I was happy to seem them thriving! I highly reccomend trying this place out.

Also took a trip to Costco in Everett- I had not been there in a long time and was pleased to see they now carry italian canned tuna in oil so I bought quite a few cans. They also had a 2lb box for figs for $4 so I had to buy that too.

    Man, I've read so much about Mike & Patty's - I can't wait to go. The food there looks absolutely divine. I wonder if there's ever a time when it's less crowded.

    I was at Costco Everett yesterday too! Picked up 4 more pounds of prime ribeye, now $11.99 a pound (still a great bargain though!)

      For those who are used to the long lines at the Waltham Costco, the lines at Everett (and Dedham) generally are much shorter.

        Yes, and they have wider aisles and it's less crowded. If this Costco sold wine, it would definitely be my favorite Costco out of the two. Alas, for now, I still return to Waltham to get wine, beer, etc. http://www.tinyurbankitchen.com/

          The Dedham location is in the process of significantly expanding its liquor store. Not sure of the timing, though.

            Markdowns are far more aggressive at Everett, but you're right about the lines being better at both.

              I'm fairly new to Costco (was at the Waltham store yesterday. Lines weren't bad.) What do they typically mark down?

                Items passing out of season (ex. frozen meats for grill), items changing packaging, items that didn't sell well enough, ...

                  Bear, I am fairly new as well and dont have a car so my trips are not frequent. the membership seems to be worth it though.

              I will add that the figs have been really good. There were only two in the box that were squished.

                its weird to keep clicking on this to read about Mike and Patty's and instead seeing more and more posts about costco. Those two places are definitely on different planets, and its strange that they occupy one thread here.

                    no apology necessary, just pointing out strange bedfellows is all.....

                      I'm kinda proud to be eclectic enough to see the beauty in both!

                  Im to blame, en route to costco, we stopped in bay village.

                    I'll add to the M&P content in the thread -- my favorites there are the fancy egg sandwich and the migas. Had the breakfast torta last time and that was great as well -- the quantity and quality of food is always top-notch and well worth the price. Hoping to get a lunch sandwich there today after a late morning appointment in town. I've had good luck with getting there in the morning when they open.
