I am often in need of a coffee stop in the late to mid morning. Charles Village has a ton of spots, my parking spot was closest to Donna’s… I grabbed an ice coffee – a medium brew with smooth caramelly body. I like a little cream and sugar, I barely needed any.
I was headed to an incredibly long meetings, so I grabbed a quick bite to go. I opted for the powerhouse, and even though they have table service, the take out did not take very long. I thought my veggies were going to come on ciabatta, but I was pleasantly pleased with the flax multi-grain bread. It added a nice dense texture as opposed to the more chewy Italian bread.
The powerhouse comes with a slice of provolone cheese, some fresh crisp tomatoes and cucumber. My favorite part was the mixed greens. I was a little disappointed as they skimped a little on the avocado. Since there wasn’t much else in terms of dressing, some of the sammich was a little dry. Nevertheless, the flavors melded nicely; the raw red onion did not over power the rest. Big pro, it is a much easier way to get veggies on the go than a salad.
