Lunch at The Rush



Yesterday my brother and I got together for lunch, and this time he wanted to go somewhere else for a change, as we usually go to the Sunshine Cafe. He suggested The Rush.

The Rush is a coffee shop located in the Prestige Hotel, and it serves sandwiches and a small selection of very good baking in addition to its coffee menu. It's owned by the guy who runs Adrenaline Adventures, a local tour & transportation company. I'd been there for lunch once and it was very good, I just can't remember what I had; I just remember the chocolate peanut butter bar - outstanding. The last time was when my friend J was here and she treated me to a chocolate peanut butter bar for my birthday. These bars are TO DIE FOR. They are unbaked and gloriously awesome. They are also $3.25.

After considerable deliberation on my part, I opted for the Chunkanini Panini: chunks of chicken, bacon, Monterey Jack cheese, caramelized onions, and roasted garlic aoli. DIVINE! It was huge, delicious - almost sinfully so - and totally hit the spot. It goes for $7.95 and was totally worth it.
My brother had the Chicken Caesar Wrap, which was also huge and filling and he loved it.
I think The Rush officially has the best sandwiches in town.

Those do look good. I wanted a panini press because I love all the flavors smushed together...and the cool lines on the bread. The Rush reminds me a restaurant around here called Hopkins.

The sandwich and the bar look fantastic! I love everything in the sandwich. Monterey Jack is my favorite cheese, especially when it has jalapeno peppers in it.
