Jane has been around awhile and is quite popular. So much, they opened a specific bakery spot on Geary called Jane The Bakery, to compliment their other two locations and centralize the baked goods production. I finally had some time to get over there and try them out, thus for the next few weeks I will be regaling you with some of their sweet and savory baked things I tried on multiple visits. You can't just do a bakery once you know. Up first is the spicy sausage provolone croissant. The whole idea of sausage and cheese in some buttery bread sounded quite appealing. And for $5, the croissant looked rather large and left me to expect semi ample fillings of meat and  cheese. Sadly, that was not to be the case as you can see in the above pic. While the croissant it self was all flaky, buttery layers, the filling was on the slim side. It was like a tiny Vienna sausage cut in half tucked inside and if there was provolone in there I either missed it or it was such a small portion, it melted away during the baking process. The best I can say is, the sausage was spicy, otherwise I'm gonna say this was a bit of false advertising. Maybe if the description had said notes or hints of sausage and provolone then fine, as is, they need to bulk it up a bit if they are gonna charge a five spot for it. Had I known, I would have stuck with the regular croissant (same one without the filling) for $3.50. But hey, here is some food news to fill you up instead.
