Delicious Sandwich, Terrible Service

My husband and I recently tried the new sandwich shop in Arlington Center, The Madrona Tree.  The restaurant is really small with 6 indoor tables and a few tables outside, but boasts a big message of "eat like you give a damn; care about what you eat, how you eat and the environment".  They are becoming known around town for their support of local farmers, their eco-friendly practices and their delicious sandwiches. 

And delicious it was!  I got the Jimbo's Pesto Chicken wrap, which was grilled chicken, pesto, mozzarella, tomatoes and mushrooms on a syrian wrap.  Everything about this sandwich was excellent; everything tasted fresh and the combination of ingredients worked brilliantly!  Not only was the sandwich great, but the sides were equally good, garlic fries and homemade simple syrup soda!

Now, I realize this blog is supposed to be reviewing sandwiches only, but it is hard to ignore bad service; it kind of ruins the experience for you, and our service was terrible.  The fact that there are only six tables to be served should mean an attentive waitress but that was the opposite of true. 

Bottom line: The sandwich was worth returning for, but next time will be take-out!
