I fancied a sandwich for lunch, and Shingle Inn at Lakeside Mall always has nice gourmet sandwiches. I had eaten here before and found the food a little uncaringly constructed, but decided to give it another go, and this time we were pleasantly surprised.
I chose a turkey and cranberry sandwich on multigrain. They helpfully made it without butter and spread mayo instead. It was really good with a nice quantity of avocado and turkey in the sandwich and a great side salad with honey mustard dressing.
My partner chose the club sandwich which was equally good.
He chose an orange juice. It would have been nice if it were freshly squeezed, but he ended up with a bottled variety.
I chose a mint and lime frappe which was tasty but had a slightly fake manufactured flavour. It would be really easy to make this with fresh lime and mint, but it was okay.
The sandwiches here have definitely improved, but the restaurant still needs some care and organisation. There were lots of tables that needed cleaning and nobody really seemed to be attending to them. It’s nice here but it could be so much better.
