More on Terra Cafe.

By Tim Hill | Posted 1/21/2009

The Terra Café recently opened across the street from a Subway, just up from the Yabba Pot, in that block of St. Paul that always seems on the verge of busting open. The space is nicely refurbished in friendly colors and funky chairs, and you get the feeling you could linger over a sandwich or cup of coffee with your laptop or newspaper in this bright corner shop. Our sandwiches confirmed this. A turkey club ($7.95) featured turkey ham--no pork at Terra--and tasted great, thanks to the thinly-sliced red onion and roasted red pepper aioli. Likewise, the turkey Rachel ($6.95) had a nice smattering of coleslaw and dressing between the plentiful slices of turkey. We'd probably go with the flatbread the next time, as the thinly sliced bread used for the panini became overwhelmingly buttery when pressed. The final touch was the side of fresh-fried potato chips--so good we had to break out the ketchup.
