Good Eats: Thyme Cafe and Market
Here on the Westside, we’re so fortunate to have so many delicious eateries. This afternoon I decided to check out Thyme Cafe out in Santa Monica, and the food was just divine! The only caveat is that they close at 7pm daily. =(
The seating is sparse, as there are only a couple of tables and 1 communal table. Most of the customers ordered take-out, so the seating situation didn’t get ugly. I would definitely not recommend taking a large group to Thyme because of the lack of seating and parking in the area. They have a back lot, but that gets filled up very quickly. Now, on to the good stuff.
Thyme Cafe’s menu features about 8 sandwiches and 8 salads, for just under $9.00. It was a really tough choice, so I decided to get one of each. They also feature a breakfast menu, ala cart items, pastries, and an extensive beverage selection. I highly recommend the Chinese Chicken Salad because the dressing was flavorful and not over powering. The wonton strips and lettuce were crisp and bell peppers definitely added a nice flavor to this salad. The Ham & Brie bagette is one of my favorites over at Joans on 3rd, and Thyme’s version is absolutely delicious. It is a light sandwich that is packed with robust flavors!
I must take JP with me next time. And, then I can try the Pressed Salami Sandwich, or maybe the Steak Sandwich. =)
