Soups, Salads, and Sandwiches
Chocolate Cafe is a cute little restaurant located off-the-beaten-path in Arlington. They specialize in dessert stuff, especially chocolate fondue and chocolate cake. But they also serve soups, salads, and sandwiches.
My wife took me there because she had had a wonderful lunch there with her friends. Plus we both had noticed the Martini Bar Happy Hour signs they place in front of their store. So off we went, with high hopes, for martinis and a light dinner.
Things did not turn very well on either goal. First of all, none of the servers that night had any experience making a martini. This was early in their martini program... Undeterred, I volunteered to make it, if they could produce the ingredients. The only gin they had was well gin, but they produced some vermouth, so all was OK until I asked for olives. They didn't have any.
A martini without olives is like strawberry shortcake without strawberries. Why bother?
Then I ordered the BBQ pork sandwich and it tasted like it came from a Sam's Club tub. Maybe it was homemade, but in any event it was just OK, undistinguished. My wife got another sandwich, which was better, but we both agreed that this is probably a better place for lunch than dinner. They also seem to do a large coffee business in the morning - yes, they are open for breakfast at 8 a.m.
On the good side, everything is cheap - all entrees are under $7.
We didn't try their desserts but they all looked delicious and calorie free.
We'll try it again, but frankly are in no rush.
