I don’t have much time for lunch and after spending ten minutes looking for a parking place, I end up at the Market Street Cafe in Celebration, Florida. The restaurant looks like an up-scale diner and their website claims as such with “Market Street Café is an upscale diner concept that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days per week. Breakfast is available all day” as the description. It is clean, not too loud, and pleasant.
They are busy, with almost every table full at Noon, but we are quickly seated in a booth. I place my drink order of unsweetened tea and also order the Tuna Melt on Rye ($7.95) sandwich. My food arrives quickly and looks delicious. My sandwich comes with a side of cole-slaw and the bread looks nice and grilled.
The menu describes the sandwich as “Tuna salad on grilled rye toast topped with tomato and cheddar cheese” and it is pretty spot-on. The tomato flavor shines through and the cheddar cheese has a nice bite to it. The rye bread is flavorful, but not too overpowering, and all of the flavors work well together. My only complaint is the sandwich is a bit too greasy for my tastes. I prefer a light tuna sandwich and this one is on the heavy side. Regardless, tastes good and the cole-slaw is a nice pairing.
Overall I was satisfied with the meal and I ate only half of it to keep the calorie count down. In the future I may try the Turkey Club without bacon.
