Eating a sandwich, like spelunking, requires a firm grip, two friends, and coveralls you don't mind getting doused with mustard. Indulge adventurous appetites with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of sandwiches, soups, and salads at The Simple Sandwich.
The Simple Sandwich adorns its lean menu with fresh café cuisine that's often crafted with locally sourced ingredients and eco-friendly equipment. Artistic epicurean creations emerge when patrons flex forks for the build-your-own-salad option ($4.99/large, $2.99/side), drawing from a palette of fresh veggies and dressings that include balsamic and raspberry vinaigrette, and self-built, bun-ensconced beauties ($5.49/whole, $3.99/half) are chiseled from an ample array of breads, meats, cheeses, toppings, and spreads such as pesto mayo and spicy cranberry. The menu's ever-evolving slate of piping-hot soups ($3.99/bowl, $2.99/cup) quenches savory thirsts, and an eyelid-unfurling bevy of breakfast sandwiches ($2.99) and pastries ($0.99–$1.99) ably shake off nightmares of colossal, oat-spewing Wilford Brimleys. Six diverse wraps round out the menu ($5.49–$6.49), and maw-cooling smoothies coat throats with flavorsome blends of berries, tropical pineapple, and coffee ($3.99 each).
The Simple Sandwich
There are two ways to order a sandwich at The Simple Sandwich—either dictate your choice of bread, meats, and toppings to a cheerful counter staffer, or punch in an order on the handy touchscreen. Upon receiving orders, the eatery's chefs spring into action, assembling locally sourced ingredients into sandwiches lauded by Minneapolis City Pages as having "everything right: soft bread [and] the perfect amount of mustard." They layer wheat, sourdough, and rye with slices of ham, pastrami, and turkey before adding on dabs of pesto mayo and sprinkles of sprouts and jalapeños. When not whipping up sandwiches, the chefs extend their culinary expertise to salads, inviting guests to customize their salads by choosing toppings, picking out a dressing, and nicknaming each of the croutons. They pair sandwiches, wraps, and salads with sides of crunchy kettle chips and freshly baked cookies.
