The sandwich I had here was lackluster at best. First off, they gave me the wrong sandwich. I asked for turkey (lettuce, cheddar, mayo), but they gave me ham (swiss, mustard). The counter gal even asked me, "Turkey and no tomatoes, right?" I ate the sandwich anyway and expected to like it, but I unfortunately didn't think it tasted very good. And you know how the edges of ham cold cuts are a different texture, a texture almost like paper? Bakerman's ham suffers quite horribly from that malady, and this is why I typically don't get ham sammiches at any deli. That's not the only reason I disliked the sandwich. I'm not a huge mustard fan, so that turned me off, as well. Sometimes I like mustard, but usually I don't. So I didn't even eat half of this sammich before I threw it away.
The sandwich was, at least, affordable. $4.25, which is cheaper than Jimmy John's, but you don't get nearly as much sandwich at Bakerman's. And the sammich was put on plain white bread, which is something I can oh-so easily do at home.
Thankfully, I also bought a s'mores cookie, which was incredibly good and incredibly huge. 'Twas a great value at $1.55. I highly recommend getting one of these cookies.
If Bakerman's had a soda fountain, I probably would have stayed there to eat (and thus would have been able to get my sandwich corrected). The reason I didn't stay is because I didn't see any drinks in the fridge that I wanted. Coke, Diet Coke (ack!), some bottled tea that I had yesterday but didn't particularly like. I didn't even see bottled water. I felt like a kid from one of those old-school Sunny Delight commercials where the brat opens the fridge and rifles through it, dismissively muttering, "Soda, OJ, purple stuff... SUNNY D!" Only I didn't find anything comparable to Sunny D in Bakerman's fridge, so I took my ball and went home. That is to say, I took my sammich and went back to the office.
The counter girl gave awesome service, so there is that.
I might actually try out their soup, provided I can go on a day when they feature a soup I might like.
Had I not gotten that s'mores cookie, I would have given this place a worse review. Luckily for them my gluttony got the better of me that day.
