One of my coworkers decided to take several of us to one of her favorite restaurants that is a sandwich shop and doubles as a bakery. Founded by Nicole and David, Nicavid’s creates specialty sandwiches on home baked bread, along with soups and desserts from scratch.
The restaurant is kind of small on the inside and has a good feel. There is also a nice patio, and seeing that the day was nice, we decided to go outside to take in the beautiful day. While ordering at the register, you can look at the strategically placed shelf to the left with all the baked goodies. Let me tell you it is hard to resist; my sweet tooth couldn’t turn down the raspberry cheesecake!
I ordered the ½ Italian Stallion (I think it had prosciutto, salami, and maybe pepperoni) along with a cup of carrot ginger soup. I had to go with that soup because my coworker had been raving about it for the entire week, so even though I could not imagine how a carrot soup would taste good, I trusted her judgment and ordered it.
The bread was really good on the sandwich, but the amount of meat on the sandwich was a little disappointing. I guess overall it was a pretty good sandwich, but nothing that really was absolutely amazing. The soup on the other hand was really really good and warrants a trip to the restaurant! I don’t even really know how to describe it in a way that could possibly make anyone believe that carrot soup could be awesome, but you just have to trust me.
While the sandwich was not all that impressive, I do recommend going to this restaurant on a cold day to pick up some soup. In my next trip to the restaurant, I think I will be getting a full bowl.
Value: 7/10 (a little expensive for a smallish ½ sandwich and soup; I would like to give a shout out to one of my coworkers who bought my lunch!)
Atmosphere: 8.5/10 (enjoyed the bakery/restaurant atmosphere and the patio is good)
Service: 9/10 (really didn’t interact with anyone with the exception of at the register)
Taste: 6.5/10 (I got to go with a 6.5 here because the sandwiches were just all right to me; if I was purely judging on the soup, I would give it like a 8.5 or a 9 because it is really good; like no joke, I plan on going back when it starts getting cold just to get some soup and their bread and you should too.)
