Proprietors Trish and Tom Dahl and the creative team at Northside Grind continually add new items to the tempting menu of salads, sandwiches, beverages, baked goods, and desserts.
One of their most recent additions came directly from a customer request.
Said Trish, “To celebrate the birthday of Christian Archer, one of our favorite customers, his sister, Mallory, asked us to make his favorite sandwich and name it in his honor.” What a clever gift idea!
The surprise gastronomic treat was presented to Christian at a festive gathering of friends and family. The “Snarch Sandwich” was so well received, it became a ‘special’ at the coffee shop.
Happily, it remains available by request. The “Snarch Sandwich” features hot, thinly sliced London Broil topped with melted Vermont cheddar, spicy jalapeños, and house-made horseradish aioli on a toasted roll. Delicious!

A BIT ABOUT IGUANAS
Although iguanas have an off-putting pre-historic appearance — complete with spiny projections — these critters average about three-feet in length and are largely passive. However, iguanas tend to enjoy snacking on hibiscus and are consequently drawn to bright red colors. With that in mind, watch your toes if you’re sporting vibrant red nail polish.
