The Whole Shebang $10 deal at Timbrook Kitchens
For $10 you get:
two slices of savory pie or a sandwich
a salad, soup or side
a slice of dessert pie
It's a pretty sweet deal. I hopped over there when I saw the Cubano was on the menu. (If you don't follow on FB, be sure to do so to get updates on what's new each day.) Once I decided to go with the $10 special, I was going to get a side salad but then saw the bacon jam potato salad and switched to that. Glad I did. It was tasty. I got my usual for the dessert - a slice of peanut butter pie.
The place is a little foodie oasis on busy Ridge Road in Munster, Indiana, located directly across the street from the large Strack and Van Til grocery store in a little strip next to a tobacco shop. Walking inside you're greeted by smells and sights that will make you hungry for everything on the menu. A tray of pastries is usually out on the counter to tempt you. I always linger a little and talk food with the owner who loves to share his favorite spots to eat and hear about yours. And baseball. We always talk baseball. It's nice to hear a Cardinals fan admit to what a good season the Cubs are having. :) I look forward to gloating even more come October - it's been a long time coming. My dad also stops in there from time to time and they have a friendly little bet going that will result in one of them wearing a baseball cap of the rival team this fall.
We also had my sister's baby shower in this cozy cafe - there were about a dozen of us and it was intimate and fun, especially since I'm not the only foodie in the family.
