The restaurant itself is pretty tiny, but it's completely cute. Clean lines, nice white walls, pretty wooden tables, and faux ants crawling up the side of the wall. When we got there it was pretty busy, and it took us a bit to get a seat, but the food was definitely worth the wait.
See the cute ants?
Scott and I both got the caprese sandwich, along with potato salad and mac n cheese for our sides. The sandwiches were extra delicious, and very filling. We were not as impressed with our sides, though. While both were ok, it felt a bit silly to pay a dollar extra for the mac n cheese. Next I think we will go with the fruit, or maybe even try the pasta salad.
Before we left Scott ordered an iced americano, ya know, because we still had a full day of studying and running around ahead of us. The americano had great flavor, and was definitely a much needed energy boost.
Overall, we both really liked Urban Picnic and will be going back again. If you're ever in downtown Mesa around lunch time, definitely check it out!
Have you been to Urban Picnic? What's your favorite kind of sandwich?
