Pom Pom's Teahouse and Sandwicheria
Pom Pom’s Teahouse and Sandwicheria is located on Bumby Ave. just North of the 408 toll road, and as their name states they specialize in interesting tea blends and gourmet pressed sandwiches. They are open for lunch and dinner during the week and are 24 hours on the weekends.
What to expect from a visit to Pom Pom’s Teahouse and Sandwicheria? Well that all depends on what time of day you go. During the day you will find it rather laid back, but if you go at 3am like I did on my last visit you will find yourself waiting for a table because the place is packed.
I’ve actually been going to Pom Pom’s since they first opened back in 2005 (I think). Over the years they have consistently been providing interesting sandwiches and an awesome/funky atmosphere.
Some of my favorites are …
The Cobb (Turkey, Melted Bleu Cheese, Tomato, Watercress, Red Onion, Bacon and Avocado $8)
Mama Ling Ling’s Thanksgiving (Turkey, Ginger Cranberry Chutney, Gouda, Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes, Cream Cheese and a Side of Gravy $8)
and the Spicy Elvis (Cayenne Peanut Butter, Bacon and Sliced Bananas $7)
If you’re not in the mood for a Sandwich then try one of their large Salads, such as the House (Apples, Goat Cheese, Almonds and Red Onions $6). I really enjoy the Creamy Basil, but all of their homemade Dressings are good.
They offer an assortment of cupcakes made at a local bakery to satisfy your sweet tooth.
And if you are there over night there is a Breakfast menu to order from. Do yourself a favor and get the Grits. I know many people that don’t like Grits – until they visit Pom Pom’s that is.
There is a reason the Pom Pom’s has a devoted following and always gets good reviews. The menu is simple yet there are tons of choices, and the Food always tastes great.
