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.
