Review: J.P. Spoonem’s

By JOHNETTE RODRIGUEZ  |  November 8, 2011

I also went for the savory side: a "portabella benny" ($8.75), with poached eggs on a bed of spinach, tomatoes, and portabellas, topped with Hollandaise sauce. The portabellas and spinach were delicious, and the sauce was buttery yellow. But, alas, I could detect no hint of lemon, which is what makes that sauce for me. Pat affirmed that Joe makes it himself, along with innovative dressings, such as a creamy Romano.

For take-out lunches we chose a sesame chicken wrap, with sprouts and honey mustard ($7.25), and a homemade chicken salad on wheat ($5.95). The former had a large side of coleslaw; the latter a smaller side of potato salad (other sides were a mesclun salad or steak fries).

Since there are dozens of burgers, clubs, wraps, and salads to choose from at Spoonem's, and I have barely touched the breakfast menu, I understand the locals' repeat visits. They may not be returning for their favorite thing: they may be working their way through the menu!
