On the Menu: The Club at Cedar Creek Cafe

I stopped by Cedar Creek Café, part of The Creek Group's four-headed monster, for a friend's Sunday birthday brunch/lunch. After some good conversation, I was extremely hungry, so I hurried over to the bar and ordered the old stand-by--The Club.

This was my first visit to Cedar Creek, but I've been to Onion Creek several times and have always been impressed with their sandwiches. The club sandwich, for me, is the perfect item for that first, get-to-know-you restaurant visit. It's low-risk, hard to screw up, and almost guaranteed not to wreak havoc on your insides.

Cedar Creek's proved to be one of the best in the city. They nixed common deli-meat and went with a thick, grilled chicken breast. This nice touch was accompanied by the standards--crisp bacon, lettuce, tomato and sliced avocado.

Every element of the sandwich was perfect, not the least of which was the fresh, toasted, whole grain bread. And don't forget about the mayo, I mean aioli.

I had absolutely no complaints with this sandwich, and would not hesitate for a moment to order it again. The fries were pretty standard, but as you can see, the portions were not.
