Camille's Sidewalk Cafe Mon, 12/1/08 10:07 AM (permalink)
We had one of these in our town several years ago but after about a year in business, they closed. No worry, I really didn't like it. About a year ago a new one was built about 2 miles from our house but I had no interest intrying it. During the Thanksgiving break, an old work friend wanted to meet there for lunch.

Wraps seem to be their big thing, I just don't like them. Pretty much everything is bland and uninspiring. My partner was fighting off a head cold and had a bowl of the Tuscan tomato soup. Hot sauce and pepper had to be added to make it have some kick. My friend had a salad topped with a scoop of tuna which she liked. I had ham and swiss on mable rye. The bread fell apart along the marble divisions and there was 2 slices of ham and 1 slice of swiss. They have only tortilla chips and a bland salsa for the side. Certainly not worth the $7.29 they charge for the sandwich and maybe 8 chips. I won't be back.

      They're all over, and each one is as uninspiring as the next.

        You were'nt kidding that they're all over the place!
        I'll respect both of your opinions and avoid this place..

        Besides their "Mexican Dardevil Wrap" stuff does'nt do much for me.
        Hot wraps, cold wraps, whatever; I'm just not really a wrap kind of girl.
        Give me the 24 ounce porterhouse steak ! I need a nice piece of meat!

            Sorry I didn't include the web site, they are a nation wide chain though not very wide spread. And Ellen, what meat they have, they give you very little of it.
