2 Kelly’s Café

First off lets debunk the myth about 2 Kelly’s Café – there is only one Kelly. Yup it’s true, so now next time you go 2 Kelly’s you wont be confused.

Like that pun?

In the ground level of the old revolving restaurant sits this quirky small café. After working there for 11 years, Kelly bough the restaurant out from her previous employer. She serves every table, and sometimes gets a little help from customers. Which is quite odd when customers are walking around filling up coffees – but it’s all-good.

2 Kelly’s is in a strange location, but feels good once your inside. To get there it’s a little bizarre, you have to go south bound down Garry St and take a hard left down a back alley, then enter at the door that says 81. When you walk in you’ll see a big sign that says ‘restaurant’ – then you know you’ve made it.

Once you seat yourself the ever-enthusiastic Kelly will get the menus out to you. Naturally you will order the club and patiently wait for it to come. While your club is being prepared you will have some time to observe the quirks of Kelly’s. For example, the guy beside us wasn’t wearing shoes…or socks.

Now lets get to the reason why were all here – the club. And this one is better than most. The first thing you will notice is that it is huge. You get your choice of bread, and it comes thick and fresh. Then you got real chicken, crispy bacon, shaved ham, lettuce, tomato, mayo, and the kicker…Swiss cheese. For some reason I really tasted the Swiss in this one, and loved it. Also it comes with fries that are made fresh at 2 Kelly’s.

Well done Kelly

One last note, be careful if you go on Saturday because there is no soup on Saturdays and it closes at 1.

Falafel Place

One of River Heights’s most famous breakfast spots has to be the Falafel Place. Located right on Corydon, this place serves up one of the best breakfasts in town, and the place is packed every day. So I thought it was time to get them on the blog.

One day before class I decided to stop in for a club, but what was about to happen next would shock any club sandwich lover.

They didn’t have a club sandwich on the menu.

Well, I didn’t see that one coming, and it was one of the biggest disappointments of my life.

Anyways, I asked the waitress to give me the closest thing to a club, and low and behold she offered me the schnitzel. So I said, lets do it, gimme that schnitzel. Actually the schnitz is sorta like a club, but sans bacon. It had a slab of chicken, lettuce, tomato, and some bread.

If there’s one thing I want you to take away from this blog post, it’s that if you want a clubhouse sandy, stay far away from the Falafel Place!

But the food there is great, especially if you want delicious falafel balls – they have some of the best in town. I’d also like to recommend the potato pancakes, and corned beef hash.

Also one last note, it’s cash only here folks. But don’t worry there is a TD across the street just incase you forget your bills.

Price: $7.50 – just the sandwich
