I think we found our “spot”. Although, we cannot walk there – well, we could; but it’s not a close as I would like…
Jackson’s is a wonderful deli that has amazing salads and sandwiches. They are very fresh with great-sized portions at a reasonable price. They also have a little market with some yummy baked goods. Two molasses cookies with cream in the middle is my favorite!
We went there for dinner last night so I got a cookie for dessert. I ended up saving mine for this morning to have with my coffee (after an egg so I wouldn’t have a sugar headache).
We’ve been here numerous times… Zubair always gets the same thing and I usually do too; except I go back and forth between a salad and a sandwich. Ham and swiss cheese on mixed baby greens with cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, onions, and pita chips for a little crunch. Then I add either oil and vinegar or blue cheese – my new favorite dressing.
We visited again today for lunch so we could take sandwiches to the park for a picnic. I got an Italian sub with extra veggies. I’m sure the novelty will wear off like our last weekend brunch “spot” did. I thought we would go there forever… and we still do sometimes. But there are so many great places to try – it’s hard to just stick with one.
For now, we are in love with Jackson’s, tucked in a cute residential area with a bunch of nice houses and apartment buildings. There’s one modern looking house that we both really like. It’s not even for sale and even if it was, I’m sure it’s out of our budget. Though it’s fun to dream about buying a place next to our current favorite “spot”.
