lunch recommendation: Jenny's cafe, Oakland

We needed to head up to Lakeshore yesterday for errands (TJ's, drugstore, that kind of thing) and used it as an opportunity to check out a new (to us) place for lunch: Jenny's Cafe on Grand Ave.

Verdict: Quite good; will happily return to try other items on the menu.

Pirate had corned beef on a Semifreddi's sourdough roll, and was quite content with it. Tasty, reasonably priced, and (of high importance to Mr. Pirate) no surprises. What the menu said came on it was exactly what came on it. Pirate appreciates this because he doesn't like being surprised by his food. I appreciate this because his rants in past were unpleasant enough for me as an involuntary audience that even now (he's gotten a lot better) the unannounced appearance of a pickle on a sandwich of his is enough to give me a half-hour stomachache. But anyway.

I had the brie-and-avocado sandwich on sliced sourdough (no tomatoes), which was very tasty. Next time I think I'll get it on a sourdough roll, for more textural contrast. Their veggie sandwich also looked worth trying.

Hm. Google Maps says it's two and a half miles from work, for an estimated 14 minute ride. That might be worth doing, for a sandwich that's got a better score on the "tasty and reasonably priced" scale than most downtown options. Plus the benefit of a brisk mid-day ride... Gotta think about that.
