More on Bigfoot Subs • Café.

By Joe MacLeod | Posted 6/14/2006

The relatively new Bigfoot Subs • Café had us at “breakfast,” with a standard-issue egg and cheese sandwich avec choice of bacon, ham, or sausage, billed as the “big breakfast sandwich” ($2.49), served on choice of bagel (we got the densely coated poppy seed) and then top-toasted, as is the current sandwich rage, just one of BF’s many simple, satisfying daily specials served in a stunningly spotless, immaculate, shiny-clean, not a thing out of place, not a single speck of dirt or food scraps anywhere, tastefully appointed shop. The ’Foot doesn’t just kick breakfast, and while we thoroughly enjoyed the “Italian Mob” ($4.49), a typical and tasty Italian cold-cuts mix nicely dressed with vinaigrette and presented in a superior, modestly sized sub roll, we were a bit disappointed with its take on the tuna melt ($3.99) as presented in a sub roll, basically just with the cheese melted. We’re also not keen on ever ordering a “crab” melt ($4.49) but commend the disclosure of the main ingredient: imitation crabmeat salad. Soups are straightforward offerings such as cream of broccoli and chicken and dumplings (12 oz. bowl $2.49), and there’s a nice lineup of reasonably priced Tazo teas and Seattle’s Best coffee, which is owned by Starbucks in case that matters. Did we mention how clean this place is? Seriously.
