Sertino's Cafe

On Friday, my husband, mother-in-law and I only had time for a quick lunch, so we stopped at Sertino's Cafe in Port Arthur, Texas.  My first impression was that it reminded me of Panera Bread.  They have coffee, sandwiches, salads, and ice-cream.

I love salads, in case you can't tell from my blog posts, so I ordered the Chicken Salad, which is described on the menu as "mixed greens, chicken breast, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, peppers, red onion and choice of dressing."  I chose honey mustard dressing, which came on the side, which I prefer anyway; however, my overall impression of the salad was unimpressed.  It wasn't mixed greens; it was iceberg lettuce.  The tomatoes were just sliced not diced.  The cheese was just cut into chunks, not shredded.  It tasted good, and I ate it all, but I could've made a better salad at home.

My husband wanted to order the Pastrami sandwich, but the guy working there said they don't have pastrami anymore.  Instead, he ordered the Turkey Southwestern Club, which is described on the menu as "turkey, mozzarella, lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, guacamole, bacon, ranch dressing, and spices."  It was a hot sandwich, which he liked, and he wolfed it down.

My mother-in-law ordered the Turkey Cranberry deli sandwich, which is described as "turkey, cream cheese, cranberry, lettuce and mayo."  She ordered it on sourdough bread.  It was a big sandwich, and she wasn't hungry enough to finish, so my husband ate the other half.  My husband said that cranberry anything immediately makes him think of Thanksgiving.  The sandwich was cold, and he would've preferred it hot.

I don't think we'd go back to Sertino's.  The food wasn't impressive.  They have free wifi, and a lot of people go there to get online or work on homework, but I'd rather go to Panera Bread.

Happy eating!
