|French press sandwich|
|Normandie sandwich (made with brie) |
and french cherry syrup water
My friend had a bit of an easier time with her order. For one, she ordered soda. (Good idea.) She also ordered a french press sandwich. It normally comes with tomatoes - which they promptly told her they did not have (kind of weird because my sandwich had tomatoes ...) - but luckily my friend was just about to ixnay the tomatoes anyway. Well, not so lucky for my friend because it took a really, really, really long time for my friend to get her sandwich. Now I don't know about you, but 20 minutes is quite a long time to wait for a sandwich. Except when they burn your sandwich in the press the first time around. As late as it may have been, at least she did enjoy that sandwich when she eventually got it - not burned, of course.
What I did like: I don't mean to suggest that Cafe Chic is a complete mess. It is a quaint little spot, with a nice selection of herbs, salts and spreads bottled for sale. Now I know where to go when I'm looking for pink Himalayan sea salt. And the little cafe tables are cute, good for a lunch between friends or dining solo. Oh, and the cherry french syrup water was tasty.
How much I spent: $12 for a sandwich and a drink. Not bad.
My rating: 2 spoons. Yes, I'm trying hard to think about something good to say because I don't think that this restaurant is necessarily horrible. I just don't think this restaurant is really ready to be open. With the missing ingredients and minimally stocked pastry case, it really did feel like we came two weeks ahead of opening day. Maybe I should come back when they get their act together. If they get their act together.
