Thursday I found myself out for a meeting in Kanata near Hazeldean Mall (300 Eagleson Road, Kanata). With time to kill, I stopped off for lunch. I perused the small food court of an A&W, Sushi Terayaki and Subway. I chose the latter as A&W's line seemed to be taking forever, I didn't want Sushi and Subway's two employees seemed to be moving their line consistently. I ventured forth, got in line, and ordered.
The Order: 1 Cold Cut Combo with Sun chips and fountain Coke.
The two ladies behind the counter were quick. Moving steadily from grabbing the bread, topping the sandwich and getting me on my way.
The Hazeldean Mall food court area is pretty small compared to other larger malls. Not too many people use it either on a weekday lunch. So finding a seat is not an issue.
I sat down and opened my quick yet neatly prepared sandwich and dug in. A traditional combination of mayonnaise, tomatoes, lettuce and onions. Nothing overpowering in taste and, the best part of all, none of the toppings falling out the end. But they didn't skimp on the veggies or other toppings either. Just a smart put together sandwich.
The only weird part of the Subway experience? The refills. Sure the fountain pop machine is customer accessible to chose your own beverage instead of having the employee do it for you. But usually these machines are not accompanied with a tiny sign slightly hidden away saying "No Refills, Refills $1.00". Perhaps the addition of this sign was needed because the franchisee was too cheap to reorient the machine so it was no longer customer accessible.
Overall, this Subway is an average small mall fast food sandwich storefront. Employees efficiently work together to move the steady customer flow in an efficient manner. Sandwiches are neatly put together and wrapped for clean eating. I'd return to this Subway stop for sandwich again.
