The Saybrook Soup & Sandwich Co. is now open in a newly renovated building at 745 Post Road in Old Saybrook. The pleasant fresh-looking decor is reflected in the green uniforms of the help who prepare your order in full view in their kitchen area. Their menu, available at the aptly named
features a nice array of soups, sandwiches (your own choice of bread and accouterments), and salads. Desserts range from gelato to creme brulee, and there is an extensive range of beverages, which we approvingly noted featured Harney teas, both hot and cold-bottled.
There is a clean dining area as well as outdoor tables, but we decided on takeout and went down to Saybrook Point where we dined al fresco accompanied by a flock of pushy seagulls. My pulled pork sandwich on multigrain bread was among the best I remember. My wife had a chicken salad (with a few substitutions cheerfully accommodated) which was so humongous it looked as if it will last for at least two more meals. We agreed that the Harney Lemonade&Tea was better than Snapple. They are open from 10 to 7 daily
