The Oaks Gourmet

dinner - sandwich - vegetarian

Last night I was too tired to cook, but didn’t feel like takeout/ordering in. We didn’t have time for a nice dinner out, and I didn’t want fast food, so we went to The Oaks Gourmet.

Nestled near the UCB Theater and Victor’s Square Restaurant, this place is your one-stop shop for all things foodie…

…everything from giant pasta…

…to my favorite local granola!

There’s also a coffee shop/bakery…

…and a small seating area, where we managed to squeeze into.

Tuesday’s Sausage Night – we ordered the last one on the menu…

…plus their vegetarian meatball sub.

Kinda pricey for food that comes in containers, but they advertise themselves as “gourmet!” We’re all suckas.

The sandwiches are a pretty decent size. We split both.

To be honest, they weren’t any better than something I could whip up in 5 minutes from Trader Joe’s using their veggie sausage

…and Meatless Meatballs. Neither bread option was great.

I did like dousing them in fancy sauce, though.

The Oaks Gourmet is pretty well-known for their Grilled Cheese and Beef Burger so I’m willing to give them one more shot, but if you’re a vegetarian in the same area, I’d recommend walking over to Locali for one of their sandwiches instead.

Shhh…don’t tell, but I brought my own dessert. The place was swimming in chocolate, but since this bar was already in my bag, I couldn’t resist a few pieces.

    Those sandwiches look superb…especially meatless meatballs. The Oaks Gourmet also serves up the yummiest pizzas! There’s an eggy one that’s particularly scrumptious :)
