Hannah’s Bretzel is da bomb

Veggie Bomb | Hannah's Bretzel

The veggie sandwich that rocked my world.

I went out for lunch this week hoping to find something a little different, a little beyond the grab-a-quick-meal experience. What I wasn’t expecting was to find a life-changing veggie sandwich. In my world, such things do not exist — most vegetarian sandwichs are thinly disguised salads on a hamburger bun. So when I walked into Hannah’s Bretzel I was not only surprised to see more than one token vegetarian sandwich on the list of options, but to find one that was vegan and 35% organically virtuous. Score.

It’s amazing what an awesome bun, greens, avocado, perky tomatos and the right dressing can do to transform a veggie sandwich into a Veggie Bomb. I wish other places would come to Hannah’s Bretzel and learn. Better yet, replace all places called Potbelly, Quiznos and Subway with a Hannah’s Bretzel. It’s a few dollars more than those spots, but the fact that you get real, honest-to-market vegetables is worth it. And the sides? They have chips, but they also have tamari roasted almonds, roasted soy nuts, and roasted vegetables.

They appear to cater to the carnivorous with equal success — my dining companion went into similar raptures for the Hannah’s Club. And, for those not a health kick or having a bad day, there’s a wall of chocolate as you wait in line. The good stuff, no Hershey’s. I picked up a Vosges bar because pre-emptive chocolate is the prerogative of all food reviewers.

Good sandwiches, good chocolate, fast line? Why yes, I will definitely be back to eat my way through the menu.
