This is a great hidden gem with an amazingly creative menu.
The ambiance is very cute here.
The hot chocolate had marshmallows in it! Hello, childhood! Made this cold weather more bearable. Another thing that reminded me of my childhood, ok fine, not MY childhood but TV (sad, I know): when the kids are running out of the kitchen trying to catch the schoolbus and the mom is standing by the door handing each kid their lunch bag. The Moo Krewe calls out your name and hand delivers your brown paper lunch bag. I could feel the heat radiating from my sandwich when he handed it to me.
One friend had the “I Dream of Aubergenie” Sandwich with roasted eggplant, roasted red peppers, red onion, calamata olives, feta, pesto and hummus. This was by far the winner of the day.
Another friend had the “Shirley Valentine” sandwich which had sauteed spinach, artichokes, tomato, sauteed mushroom, red onion, feta, and mozarella cheese. The friend had noted that the artichoke flavor was a bit overwhelming.
I had the psycho chicken sandwich with marinated chicken (not really marinated), sundried tomato, mozzarella and pesto sauce. The bread was crispy and hearty, reminded me of the hunks of rustic bread from Parisian cafes. Then I found out that they get their bread from La Boulangerie which makes sense. The prices are great, and the food is even better.
