Lunch at Mugshots Cafe


My friend Leslie, from And Her Little Dog Too, and I met for lunch at Mugshots last week. We went one other time and plan on going tomorrow too! It might just become a weekly tradition….

I think it is really nice to get out during lunchtime now and again. I eat most of my meals at home all week long and it is a nice treat to have lunch with a friend! Leslie got there about an hour before me to do some work, and gchatted me that they had a PUMPKIN SOUP as a special! Yum! We were both super stoked for lunch.

When I got there and we finally decided what to order, we decided to share a cup of the soup with our meals. I honestly just wanted a little taste of it to decide if I should have it next time. I got a salad, and Leslie had an awesome grilled veggie sandwich.

We sat down and waited for our order, but we got called up a little early and were told some sad news…

THEY WERE OUT OF PUMPKIN SOUP!

To make up for it, the nice guy gave us some vegetarian chili topped with cheese (the cheese was extra I guess!) and some dry toast. It was good, but I am sure it was nothing like the pumpkin soup would have been. When we have lunch this week I hope they have it again!

My salad had mixed greens, organic sliced turkey, avocado, red onion, tomato, cucumber, and a balsamic dressing.

Leslie’s sandwich was a special of the day, and it was grilled veggies with cheese and pesto. I had the same sandwich last time and it was very satisfying and flavorful.

The presentation of the soup wasn’t superb, and it was a little spicy for me, but the salad more than made up for it! I really wanted the pumpkin soup!

I love Mugshot’s because the food is fresh and much of it is grown locally. And it is funky! I love it there, and can’t wait for my next lunch date with Leslie!

She is super sweet and brought me two cookies she had made! These were chocolate-PB-coconut-sugar cookies. Seriously! YUM! Click here to see how she made them. I enjoyed them late that afternoon after we went on a fun trip to Whole Foods!
