The other day Bec and I were cruising the city streets on the hunt for a good ol’ toasted sandwich. It didn’t take too long before we found ourselves staring at a pretty comprehensive toastie menu. The menu, that also boasts other delicious items including doughnuts and muffins all baked in-house, belongs to the relatively new cafe Tupelo Coffee Co.
Tupelo is a hole-in-the-wall cafe located on Alinga Street in the City and I must say, it really kicks ass. I ordered the “You Bastard, Reuben” with slow cooked beef brisket, sauerkraut, mustard relish, swiss cheese and Russian dressing. Bec decided to go with the “Red Right Hand”, which was pretty much a margherita pizza in a toastie. We also got a round of coffees because, you know, it’s what we do.
Anyway, back to the toasties, they were absolutely amazing little parcels of heaven. I can’t speak for Bec, but Tupelo’s take on the reuben sandwich is definitely one of the greatest, if not the greatest sandwich, of any form that I have ever eaten, ever.
The barista makes a wicked coffee, we can vouch for that, and they also offer a pint of chocolate milk for the non-coffee drinkers out there, which I think is genius. All the staff were really friendly, cool and up for a laugh – definitely a plus.
Tupelo is a groovy little cafe that’s big on delicious simple food, good coffee and chilled vibes. Located at 92-100 Alinga Street, you should definitely check it out next time you’re in the city.
