I decided to get there early and wait for everyone to come since I'm such a good host and don't want anyone sitting by themselves. Plus, I had a bunch of people coming, since I'm so popular (jk) and wanted to ensure that we had an appropriate sized area to fit us all. If you've been to Comet, you know that it isn't the best spot for larger groups but they always try to accommodate the best they can. I put my name on the wait list, ordered a Bell's Oberon (one of my Summer beers of choice) and sat outside to wait for my friends. They said it would be a wait but what can be expected on a Thursday night on the East Side.

-Not the best for larger groups. If you still decide to go, you'll have to break up your group a tad.
-Nice enough server... you may get a birthday treat.
-Various flavors of home baked goods.
As you already know, I love me some comet cafe. This sandwich wasn't one of my faves at comet but definitely not the bottom of the list either. If someone asked me, probably wouldn't recommend this if they were going to Comet for the first time. The pie was pretty darn good. I would want to get the other flavors some other time, warmed up and with ice cream. A la mod-E as she would say in Little Miss Sunshine. Dig that movie. I will be back there soon for sure! Hope to see ya there.
