I stumbled upon Full Belly Craft Kitchen and Bakery mainly because there was a board out by Sheridan Road and I thought that the logo and the name were super cute. Boy, was I thrilled when I decided to stop in and found out what a treasure this place is. Full Belly specializes in “sandwich pies” that are light, flaky and so flavorful. The Owner, Mitch, is beyond accommodating and so friendly. When we first tried the sandwich pies he revealed that he took his time to create the recipe for the crust and we are so glad that he did because what he created is magical. With flavors like, BBQ brisket, tuna melt, the chicken pot pie, thai chicken, pasta primavera, black angus bacon burger, decked out cheesy dog, Shroomz, the Italian, and the mac n’ cheese there is something for every palate. Oh, and there is also a line of vegetarian pies and four breakfast pies, as well. Each sandwich pie comes with a choice of homemade coleslaw or cheddar mac salad and Full Belly’s homemade pickles – so come hungry!
Full Belly has so much more than just sandwich pies, too, the menu includes made to order pickles of many varieties (which can be found at Sunset Foods and Whole Foods), granola (my favorite!), vegetarian farro and quinoa salads, BBQ sauce (to come!), spice rubs and more. All of the products at Full Belly are made in small batches from locally sourced or farm fresh ingredients. This means that the menu may change seasonally, but with such a wide selection of products, you will always find something (or many something’s) to dine-in or carry out at Full Belly.
Make sure to look out for Full Belly’s pickle sampling at the Sunset and Whole Foods stores. To find out dates and times, follow Full Belly on Facebook so you can see where they are on the weekends.
