Jesus, this place is always busy. First time I was in town with K, we were going to drop in for a bite but Lazy Loaf & Kettle was so packed, we decided to go elsewhere. Well, this time I came by myself to grab her some food while she studied (I know, I know, I’m such a good friend).
Weekends are busy busy. I dropped by early Saturday afternoon and there was a massive line for takeout. No worries though, it moves pretty fast.
The menu is pretty straightforward with hot and cold drinks, breakfast and lunch options. Sandwiches and soups seem to be their jam. They also have massive baked goodies that tempt you while you wait in line.
Couple specials on their side menu, just above the kitchen counter. Nothing too mind blowing/dramatic here.
You get to customize your sandwich to your hearts content. I like how they have special breads for every day of the week (Monday: Sundried tomato, Tuesday: Wheat and honey, Wednesday: Cranberry rosemary, Thursday: Cheese and chive, Friday: Dill, Saturday: Asiago Italian herb, and Sunday: Rosemary garlic). Makes them stand out from the crowd a bit.
Takeout bag. FYI – not the best bag to carry when you’re biking back home. At least it lasted with only a few small tears.
Whole sandwich with soup ($14.10) and puffed wheat squares ($4.10)
Got the Saturday Asiago Italian herb bread and tomato bacon soup special. Didn’t try the sandwich and soup but my friend liked it. Good amount of turkey meat and vegetables. I had the puffed wheat square which was pretty addictive. Fell apart easily and not overly sweet.
Tried to go all Instagram hipster with this photo. Not bad right?
Decent spot to grab brunch if sandwiches and soups is up your alley. Just be prepared to wait if you want to eat inside, otherwise take it to go/eat outside on the patio!
