Sandwiches, Burgers, and Fries—Oh My! – March 16, 2009

As I’ve mentioned before, Copper Penny’s menu isn’t overly exciting. I like it for its consistency and straightforwardness. You order something, and you actually get what you’re expecting.

We went back to Copper Penny for dinner before heading out to a movie across the street. I ordered the Copper Penny Club which includes roast beef, turkey, and bacon. Yummy! It was served alongside a huge pile of fries. There’s not much to say about the club. It’s exactly as you would imagine. There was a smidgen too much mayo, but I just scraped some off and happily returned to the sandwich. The deli meats were cold, but the toast and bacon were warm. I liked the different temperatures in the sandwich because it played nicely with all the other flavours and textures.

Jimmy ordered their Mushroom Bacon Burger. Again, it’s exactly as advertised in the menu: sautéed mushrooms and bacon on a burger. He got extra onions (raw) to kick up the flavour, but I think that’s all he did to it. This was also served with a heaping mound of fries.

There’s something to be said about consistency and reliability. Almost every time we eat there, we get the same waitress. She’s always friendly and attentive. Even when we’re the last couple in the place, she doesn’t rush us. And the food always comes out in decent time. We’ve had practically nothing to complain about there. The prices are about right, too. The bill this time came under $30 with tax and tip. Just don’t go to Copper Penny expecting gourmet burgers. It’s a nice alternative to grabbing McDonald’s or pizza for a quick bite.
