Sandwich Contents - Sliced turkey, melted Brie with mango chutney spread on top.

Kate's Review – This has been one of my favorite sandwiches for a few years so I was definitely excited to share the experience. The mango chutney adds extra sweetness to the turkey and Brie and the warm freshly made bread melts in your mouth. On this particular day the bread was a little harder than usual which made the sandwich more difficult to eat and didn’t WOW me as it usually does. I will still continue to eat it because I know its potential and am chalking this one up to a bad batch of bread. Warning, they don’t have it on their Sunday brunch menu so don’t go in with your hopes up and leave disappointed as I had too on another occasion. Good thing is they have a lot of other good options.

Nicole's Review - I was really looking forward to this sandwich. I love brie and turkey and had fond memories of mango chutney accompanying my dad’s homemade turkey curry. It was a terribly rainy day when we tried this sandwich and I expected it to really warm me up and make me feel all fuzzy inside. Instead, it made me ill. The chutney was too sweet, the bread too dry and the turkey sliced too thick. I really didn’t enjoy it at all and as the day went on it made me feel worse and worse. I was really disappointed that I didn’t like it as much as I expected, but I am eager to go back and try some other things on the menu. I just hope it isn’t as cold in the restaurant next time!

This sandwich was shared with a couple co-workers and Kath who is now a former co-worker. We miss you Kath!

Main Street Muffuletta - Savona

Sandwich Contents - Flat loaf bread with olive spread, roasted red peppers, marinated artichoke hearts, lettuce, tomato, and sliced onion.

Kate's Review – Italian sandwiches are always scrumptious to me and this one stood up to the test. Per the magazines recommendation we ordered it warm. The combination of the fresh mozzarella and olive tapenade helped to keep the other ingredients together all though the hard crust of the Ciabatta made it difficult to keep in with each bite. As a bonus they had a wine tasting at the store so we got to wash it down with Reisling.

Nicole's Review - This sandwich was good but very messy. It had lots of ingredients that squeezed out every time you took a bite. In the past the muffulettas I have had have always been stuffed into muffuletta bread so you don’t have things falling out the back and the side. I would have preferred this sandwich to be like that. I also would have liked the artichokes to be cut up a little smaller so I didn’t just get mouthfuls of artichoke.

Reuben Royale - Liquid Earth

Sandwich Contents - Tofu, melted Yarlsberg, warm sauerkraut and red onions with the restaurant's own Thousand Island dressing on toasted Jewish rye.

Kate's Review – This sandwich left much to be desired. After waiting 1 hour they hadn’t even started making the sandwich so needless to say we left without trying it. No lose on this end.

Nicole's Review - I was dreading this sandwich because of the tofu. I’ve only had tofu a couple times in my life and I didn’t like it. I was also a teenager and not as open to new things. Still, I was filled with dread. Fortunatly for me, I never had to eat it. We waited an hour at this restaurant for the sandwich and finally had to leave without trying it to get back to work. We had thought we’d just get it to go, but after finding out they hadn’t even started making it, we just called it a day and left.
