Brother restaurant to Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup, Phat Sammich had it going on with the sandwiches. They were hot, phat, and delicious. However, they are gone. Long gone. :(
They served a couple soups that GCATS served and if you read that review you would know that I think they are yummy! The one thing I wanted to comment on about Phat Sammich is the chips. I know... so what about chips? Um.. they make them there and they are salty and seasoned to perfection. They would always sell out. The two times I had them they were so good that I kept calling and randomly stopping by to get some.
So long Phat Sammy! I'll miss ya.
Commonwealth is a place I'd like to spend more time in. It seems like a gem in a uppdity city. I'm sure you can guess that I'm not a huge fan of Birmingham. I have just found that i haven't encountered tons of warm nice people in the area. I know that can happen anywhere, but it's happened more in B'ham, more frequently.
There are a couple of spots that I do like, this being one of them. They dish up breakfast/brunch items and serve delicious coffee. It has a very clean, minimalist, modern environment. Their food is good and it feels comfortable to be there. However, when it comes down to breakfast/brunch areas and I have to pick... sadly this is not one of the first places that pop into my mind. I do often wonder if I would go here more if it weren't in Birmingham... It's one of the more casual-hip places in B'ham.
It's good though. Check it out.
I love everything about this place. Except that it's in Birmingham (not a fan). They sell sandwiches and soup. Gluten-free options and some delicious photos from @indulgedetroit persuaded me to come in. I'm glad I finally made it. They did not disappoint. Stop on in and grab yourself one of their sandwiches!
