GET ANY SANDWICH ON OUR FRESH, HOMEMADE FOCACCIA BREAD - OR WITHOUT BREAD (most sandwiches)!
We're transitioning to all homemade breads. It's the only way to make breads that are the right size and texture for our purposes. Today, in addition to our focaccia bread and English Muffins, the White and Wheat breads are homemade as is the Braided Marble Rye and the Straun, a multi-grain bread. Check 'em out!
Some specials are crowd pleasers. Others just don't get too many people excited, but those who do get it love it. HELLO DHALLY is one of the later, and it's catching on. It is a delicious Vegan (at least without the cucumber raita which is made with yogurt) option. It's lentils cooked with turmeric and then we add sauteed onions, garlic, & cumin and coconut milk, and then the broth from cooking the lentils is used for the basmati rice pilaf, which also contains peas, cashews & dried cranberries. The cucumber raita is a cooling yogurt-based condiment $7.25.
Our PULLED PORK SANDWICH is a perennial favorite. It's simple: spice-rubbed, slow-cooked pork on a delicious egg-washed bun with Chicago's Own Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce $6.75.
Have you tried our new homemade grain bread? Today we will be sampling it. We are also offering a grilled PEAR BUTTER AND CREAM CHEESE on the grain bread, $5.75.
A "Bahn-Mi" Is a Vietnamese version of a sandwich on a roll. Our THAI STEAK SANDWICH plays a bit with geography by adding a homemade peanut sauce to the experience, along with fresh basil, grated carrots & sliced cucumbers $9.75.
Want a salad but need it to be hearty? Get the CHOPPED SALAD with Apples & Walnuts, tossed in Blue Cheese Dressing $8.25. Add Grilled Chicken for $3.
For a flavor explosion, go for the SPICE-RUBBED GRILLED ASIAN CHICKEN WRAPS with sesame-ginger sauce, wrapped in a tortilla with 3 types of shredded cabbage $7.75.
If you're eating paleo-ish (no white stuff - flour, sugar, potatoes etc), we've got not one but two options for you today: You can get the THAI STEAK over Romaine with shredded carrots, cukes & onions with a 2 oz. Thai Peanut Sauce (the sauce may be pushing it paleo-wise, but it's delicious and half the usual dressing portion) or the ASIAN CHICKEN over shredded Cabbage mix with Sesame Ginger dressing (same deal on the dressing)($9.95 each). Purists can go for Gayle's zesty Red Wine vinaigrette dressing.
Today quiche is BACON & SWISS, served with a small green salad $7.95.
Get your late breakfast sandwich on a homemade English Muffin with egg & Cheddar, plus bacon or ham, for $4.25. Add a small soup for $2.
Soups are Tomato Basil and Creamy Chicken with Wild Rice $2.95/8 oz, $3.95/large
GALIA MELON LEMONADE is someone's favorite. KOMBUCHA is an ancient, yet very hip fermented tea drink, made with a S.C.O.B.Y. (a symbiotic combination of bacteria and yeast). The product is a sweet/sour, slightly buzzy drink $2.95.
We have KITCHEN SINK COOKIES ($2.25) and FRUIT or CUSTARD (BANANA, COCONUT or CHOCOLATE) MINI PIES $7/each. WHISKEY CAKE is becoming a favorite cake around here! We also have cherry almond power bars today.
All specials are made in limited quantities (no changes or substitions please). Request yours in advance via email until 11:30 or by phone at any time 847 487 2037.
