I've had a less-than stellar week. So after a second trip to the vet on Friday with my kitty, Ruby, I decided to treat myself to a nice lunch before I headed back into work. There are quite a few great options right around my neighborhood - Cafe Latte, Bread & Chocolate, to name a few -- but just a mile away in the Selby & Dale neighborhood there are some awesome places to eat! One of my faves is Cheeky Monkey Deli.
The first thing you notice when you walk in (besides the huge crowd of people clamoring to get the the yummy food) is the giant menus. Big, colorful, and filled with delicious-sounding sandwiches.
After ordering and getting your number, you head over the dining room area to wait. There are some rows of tables but if you walk a bit further in, it has almost a living room feel. Big leather couches with coffee tables, a fireplace, and other chair/table combos that you might not expect in a restaurant. It's comfy, cozy, with a bit of an eclectic flair. Plus I always love sitting in bustling restaurants surrounded by people who are LOVING their food. Makes me smile. And order more.
I ordered my sandwich to go -- a roasted vegetable sandwich with hummus on ciabatta bread. (Note: pre-veggie Christine also LOVED the ham & brie sandwich!)
