Osogood Sandwiches - actually good sandwiches!

Everyone seems to be dishing out sandwiches these days but I've found it's hard to find a place that actually pays attention to all the little deals that make a great sandwich. So I was really happy to find this odd little place on College between Dovercourt and Ossington. The whole cafe is virtually a walk-in closet but they've managed to fit in a small bar near the window for a few seats and even a lower counter with some toys and books for kids.

It seems to be run by a nice Asian lady and there's some great variety of sandwiches, the combination look both varied and exciting - I had the chicken and apple but the spicy crab and meatloaf also caught my eye.

I had:

Chicken and apple sandwich ~$7 - Was superb! The bread was a nice fresh multigrain filled with a very generous mix of chicken salad, apple, peppers, sprouts, and lettuce. Very, very fresh and I really liked how everything was chopped up into nice chunks so you can taste what you're eating but not so large that you couldn't take proper bites. I can't recall a more pleasant 'homely' sandwich I've had outside recently.

I also couldn't resist a pumpkin square ~$3 that was also very nice, a substantial layer of pumpkin filling on top of a tightly pressed crust that was very buttery. The crust could be a little lighter so I could actually break it with a spoon but I was happy to just stuff bites in my mouth.

There was also other great little treats, a blueberry tart, cookies, and mini rice crispy squares (obviously for kids).

While the 'look' of the place looks a little dilapidated (handmade marker on paper for signs, odd little bins holding all the goods) I'd very much recommend this place to anyone looking for a fresh baked treat or even more so a great sandwich. A few signs also advertised the fact that she made everything from scratch, which is admirable, yummy, and healthy!
