Cordelia’s a must for Harbor Town dwellers

I have a confession to make. I hope this offends no one, but Harbor Town creeps me out a little bit. It’s just a little too pristine, pretty and picturesque.

It's Greek to Me sandwich casingThat said, if you live in Harbor Town, you have no excuse to miss out on Miss Cordelia’s. If you live or work within 15 minutes of Harbor Town, Downtown I’m looking at you here, you also have no excuse.

Nestled away in the back of the same-title grocery store, Miss Cordelia’s puts together good sandwiches, and, when I was there, had quite tasty Snickerdoodles (I can’t pass up trying Snickerdoodles).

So, I bustled over to Mud Island on my lunch break and brought the sandwhich (and cookies! don’t forget the cookies!) back to the office.

I was a little nervous about the size of the package I was handed for my It’s Greek to Me sandwich. It looked awfully small.

When I got it back to the office, I understood why it appeared small to me in the bag, while the sandwich was not wide or sprawling, it was stacked high! In point of fact, it was a bit too high and a little awkward to get my mouth around.

The flavor and mixture of ingredients was pleasant, though I wasn’t a big fan of the bread. The menu said it came on focaccia, but I’m fairly certain mine was on a wheat roll. Not bad, just wasn’t the best match for the sandwich.

I’ve written before of my affinity to feta cheese, which this sandwich has, but I’d like to also add that a well-roasted pepper is almost on the same level. Mix roasted red peppers, feta cheese, cucumber and chicken together with some pesto mayo and you’ve got Cordelia’s Greek. I wouldn’t have minded some olives or to have substituted hummus for the pesto mayo, but the sandwich was damned tasty (not to mention those snickerdoodles!).

I was also glad to see their presence on social networks. They have a twitter account (@MissCordelias), which they post specials or new local products (“We are happy to have a new local product. Going Nuts Pecans……Chocolate, Praline & Roasted…also their tasty peppermint bark.”).

Also, the ability to order it online is nice, and it seems to be function well (will have to try that out next time).
