I had been here a few years ago with some friends and I remembered how much I've liked it. Now that some time has passed by and I decided to give this a try.
I had ordered a turkey sandwich and my boyfriend had ordered the chicken fajita melt. It came with a pickle and a cookie. They were nice enough to give me a free cookie because they had a special deal if you checked in via Yelp! app on your smartphone! My boyfriend decided to get a butterscotch cookie while I got myself the peanut butter & M&Ms cookie!
This cafe seems to be more known for its sweets than sandwiches but that doesn't mean it's all bad. The fajita melt had a nice spice to it while my turkey sandwich had a lot of bean sprouts. That's probably my fault since I had forgotten to ask to take it out. Ah, well.
The cookies were pretty good - they were still pretty soft but for some reason, the cookies weren't as fresh as I hoped. While the sandwiches were good, even though I forgot to ask to take out the bean sprouts, the bean sprouts over powered the turkey sandwich. It was still good but not as good - especially with that after taste.
I don't really see us coming here too often for the sandwiches - but with the cookies, lemon squares, and that 5-layer brownie, I'll still find an excuse to come in.
