Reasons for trip

Jennie’s Restaurant is in one of the old buildings on Queen Street East in St. Mary’s, next to the bridge over the river and floodwall. All the tables and chairs are painted white to create cohesiveness throughout despite being of different designs. The clientele range the gamut of ages. The members of staff are friendly and evidently know many of the customers.

When I entered the restaurant I had a cup of hot chocolate with me that I had picked up at a coffee shop down the street while I was shopping. The waitress asked if I’d mind putting it in one of their mugs; not a problem. I was just about finished it so ordered one of their hot chocolates to go with my lunch.

I had the Reuben sandwich which came with either soup or salad. I opted for the soup of the day – beef and kale. I ordered the Reuben toasted on rye bread. The sandwich was very tasty with just the right amount of filling. Some are so full of meat it overpowers the combination of the sauerkraut and mustard. It was all warm and gooey with cheese. The soup was piping hot and full of pepper. Admittedly there was more kale than beef in the soup but the flavour of the broth was excellent. Usually when something has a lot of pepper in it, as soon as the pepper catches the back of my throat I start coughing and people think I’m dying. The broth was just shy of causing this reaction so, for me, it was perfect. My mouth was still warm from the heat of the pepper for a while after finishing the soup.

I was tempted to try a dessert but the meal was ample; another time, perhaps. Note: they are only open for breakfast and lunch so you will have to catch them between the hours of 7:00 am and 2:00 pm. They are closed on Sundays.
