We've been living in the area since November and are really just starting to get around and explore Lapeer downtown. Jumped into Dagwood's for lunch today. Soup and sandwiches sounded perfect. I went with the Mad Cow which is roast beef, ghost pepper jack cheese, lettuce, and chipotle aioli. I got mine without onions. The roast beef was so fresh and delicious. The ghost pepper cheese added just the right amount of spice and the creamy aioli was a nice finish. I also got a cup of chicken noodle soup. Great rendition of a classic with nothing crazy done to it. Just good old organic ingredients! Definitely a great lunch spot. Priced a little on the higher end, but when you're getting such fresh ingredients and friendly local service it is worth it!
I went looking for coffee and somehow ended up leaving with a multi-course meal. Blondie's / Dagwood's (/Crust / Crankshaft) is quite the setup. The four-businesses-in-one may be confusing for first timers, but after the initial visit it's easy to understand the genius here.
The deli area is towards the back, with a solid menu board of salads, soups and sandwiches all posted behind the counter. The breads are fantastically fresh, many of the sauces are house-made, and the portions are well in tuned to the prices. A quality deli and my new favorite lunch in town.
If savory sammies and soup galore didn't manage to fill you up, there's more in store just a few steps away in the adjoining room (I guess we'll call this the "Blondie's Sweet Boutique" area). A case of ice cream and the scent of freshly made waffles are the first things to greet you. Shelves full of prepackaged sweet treats and mostly Michigan-inspired gifts are on the opposite side of the aisle, and near the front door you'll find a Crust bakery counter and the ever-elusive Crankshaft Coffee. Like I said... genius.
The ice cream and treats are great/ but the ambience and decor will keep you popping back in to see what's new. Filled with made in Michigan products and decor items there is always something new. Great for gift baskets or just to try different products
I had the Downtown avocado. It was a good sandwich. It's not something that i will crave, it's not something I'm going to tell someone you have to try. It was just a decent sandwich. Tomato was ripe, possibly too ripe but better than the chains that chemically ripen them to not green. Turkey was tender, avocado was mushy with some chunks. Bacon was precooked and too crisp for my liking. The soup was ok. Chicken dumpling always a let down when compared to my moms so should have went with the farmers vegetable. My total was just under $15 for a fountain soda, cup of mediocre soup, and a decent sandwich, about $5 too much if you ask me. In the age of the combo meal, i always want that option. Also the entrance if you are not local and a first timer can be tricky. The door by the Dagwood sign is by a locked door no sign up front by the coffee shop, no sign by the office entrance. If you are in town and want something good
Not great try the Downtown Avocado.
The workers are so nice and helpful! I wish i could give more stars. Super cute set up. I got an Asiago bagel sandwich and i will actually
Probably dream about it... literally the best sandwich I've ever had. I will make it a point to stop in every time I'm in the area.
