Terry got a ham and cheese panini. It was pretty standard– ham, brie, and Dijon mustard served with some purple Terra chips. It was a good, standard sandwich.
I got the curried chicken salad. I love curried chicken salad! I remember the old Le Cezanne on Hyde Park addicting me to it a few years ago. They served theirs on a baguette, and it was marvelous. I duplicated it myself, but since Terry isn’t a curry fan, I don’t make it very often. Coffee Emporium’s is OK– it was a little dry (needed just a touch more mayonnaise) but the flavor was good, with a standard yellow curry powder. I’d definitely order it again, but perhaps just as chicken salad and not as a sandwich.
Coffee Emporium isn’t just for coffee– their sandwiches are pretty good, too! Combine that with friendly service, a nice atmosphere and WiFi– it could totally be my office away from home.
