I recently had a tuna sandwich in a small cafe that reminded me of the lovely lunch counter sandwiches I enjoyed as a kid. I was on white toast, with a nice tuna salad (with celery), lovely dill pickles, thinly sliced onions, and crisp lettuce. It was delicious. It was close to the sandwich I would eat at the Co-op lunch counter or at Blum's, long gone now.
I also enjoyed the steak soup at Pam Pam coffee shop, also long gone.
Somehow I feel that with the gourmet revolution that these simple, yet yummy, dishes and venues have been lost.
Did you have any favorite places, or dishes that you'd get at a lunch counter or coffee shop?
