The Place: Bean Fiend Cafe & Sandwich Bar 194 Algoma Street South 768-2326 The Price: $15.75 (with side of soup or salad) The Basics: Chicken breast, brie cheese, apricot jam, aioli, and spinach on your choice of rye or gluten-free bread The Lowdown: As one of the few selfproclaimed “sandwich bars” in Thunder Bay, Bean Fiend boasts many tasty menu items—but the chicken & brie sandwich might just take the crown. While the melted brie cheese is enough to shine on its own, the sandwich is perfectly balanced with the sweetness of the apricot jam and the tanginess of the aioli. Packed with protein (chicken and spinach!) and placed between perfectly pressed panini bread, we can see why this sandwich has a following. Pair it with a side salad or homemade soup for the ideal lunch. Bonus: they offer 10% off this sandwich every Monday. -Review by Kelsey Raynard, Photo by Darren McChristie
