Kimmie’s Coffee Cup

My friends and I stopped by this place to take a break from the Orange International Street Fair, which was happening directly outside of this little brunch shop.  We didn’t realize that bratwurst was a staple of every single country at the fair, so we were looking for something a little healthier than sausages.

The ordering was quick and painless, and the waitresses were attentive enough for how busy it was.  I wouldn’t go as far as to say their service was great, but it didn’t suck either.  The things I noticed that irked me a little bit was that the table was not set when we sat down.  The waitress plopped all the utensils and napkins in front of one of the members in my party of five.  My friend had to sort and distribute the supplies to all of us.  Not really a big deal to us, but it did seem rather unprofessional to do something like that.  Other than that, the waitress did a good job keeping the cups filled and checking back if everything was okay.

Chicken Salad Sandwich with Fruit

After looking at their menu, I ended up getting the Chicken Salad Sandwich with a side of fruit.  I figured, “hey, I can’t go wrong with a chicken salad sandwich, they’re always good”.  Well, I was wrong.  This was the worst chicken salad sandwich I have ever tasted.  It wasn’t putrid or anything like that.  It was just, bland.  You know when people say “this taste like cardboard”?  I always thought they were talking figuratively, but my sandwich really did taste like cardboard.  Who knew that was a literal statement?

Although the main course was pretty bad, I really liked the side of fruit it came with.  It’s pretty hard to screw up fresh fruit, but I guess it’s possible.  Each bite was juicy and sweet.  It was good, but not good enough to make up for the bad sandwich.

I’m not sure if everything else on the menu was better or not, but based solely on the entree I ordered, I would not make a second trip to this joint.
