Soup and a Sammich
My friends got soup and a sandwich, while I just got a sandwhich, a breakfast special with cheddar, scrambled eggs and bacon. While the sandwich took a while to show up, it was worth the wait! One friend got a seafood soup (shrimp, crab, fennel, sweet pepper, pasta, artichoke hearts and basil) and the grilled pastrami and Swiss, with green peppercorn mustard and red onion. I had a taste of the soup, and it was delicious, expertly seasoned. The other friend got the watercress, potato and mushroom soup, with leeks, cabbage and sundried tomatoes, and a chicken salad sandwich (with apples, cranberries, raisins, lettuce, basil and mayo). I also had a taste of her soup, and it was tasty, but all three of us agreed the seafood soup was better. Soups were served with a huge chunk of bread.
I thought the prices were reasonable, especially for the quality. Soups were about $4 for a cup and available by the quart ($11-$16). Salads range from $4 for a side salad to $12.50 for the "Red Leaf and Asparagus", with chicken salad added (also includes pee wee potatoes, marinated onions, roasted portobellos, and lemon caper dressing). Most sandwiches are available half or whole (about $5/$10). They also have Scottish Pies, and a featured daily dessert. As they are "farm-to-fork", their menu varies with available product, so check their menu daily.
