Poor Foodies find of the week: Elisabeta European Market in Nampa Idaho.
I’d known this place existed for some time now, but never seemed to make it when it was open. Fortunately, some coworkers and I had were lucky enough to have lunch at Brick 29 Bistro on Friday (getting us out of downtown Boise and in to downtown Nampa). Elisabeta’s is in the restored Old Masonic Building with Brick 29 (which is Nampa’s best restaurant, and really worth the drive).
We spied Elisabeta’s the deli case on our way in to Brick 29, knowing then where our dessert would be coming from. After lunch, we stopped by the small bakery/deli where Elisabeta and her son were working. They were both very friendly, and filled us full of samples of nearly every sweet confection on display. We ordered several varieties of deserts to take to Jess Flynn’s work party later that evening (You can read Jess’ foodie excursions here:idahofoodies.com).
After trying MANY of the desserts, which were all delicious, I’ve decided my favorites were the Tiramisu, Baklava, Dobos, and the Feta Cheese Pastry. I’ll definitely be back for more, especially if I ever need a whole cake, pastries or catering for an event. Elisabeta was very generous, and even offered us a few free slices of cake for already purchasing so much! I look forward to enjoying a full lunch there soon.
