Well it turns out my eyes are a little bigger than my blog, or maybe my editorial calendar is a little bigger than my tummy, but when I staked out this quest, I neglected to consider things like “offsite lunch meetings.” As a result, I wasn’t able to keep up with eating breakfast and lunch at the Coffee House every day. But I do have some more updates!
I stuck with my word and had a bagel sandwich Wednesday morning. And you may notice in the photo above that I’ve once again gone with ham, egg and cheese. But here’s the thing — I had the bagel toasted, but I wanted to keep the ham and cheese cold. So even though it’s structurally very similar to Monday’s breakfast, the experience was much different. And I really liked this! The combo of the warm bagel with the cold innards was something I really enjoyed and that I’m honestly probably going to stick with as a result of this experiment.
So then I had an offsite lunch meeting Wednesday, was offsite Thursday morning, we had a groundbreaking for our new store in Gretna on Thursday afternoon (coming soon to the blog!) and before you know it, it’s Friday morning.
It’s the last Friday in Lent, so I decided to use that opportunity to abstain from the meat and enjoy a simple plain bagel with cream cheese, which you can see above on the right. Now what you can also see above on the right is that I’m really bad at spreading cream cheese, so I decided to take this photo before I defaced this otherwise innocent bagel even further.
One thing I’ve neglected to mention is that the menu for the Coffee House is online — you can view it by clicking here (PDF). And another thing that we’re excited to announce is that throughout the month of April, we’ll be offering specials on various menu items. For example, each Wednesday in April, we’ll have a chicken salad sandwich on a croissant; on Fridays, we’ll have BBQ pulled pork sandwiches on a pretzel bun. Keep an eye here on the blog for more updates on specials.
And stop by The Coffee House! We’re open seven days a week until 4pm at the Benson Park Plaza store at 72nd & Ames! Just like at our stores, your purchases at the Coffee House support our employment and training programs.
