Weekly Lunch Pick: Delica Kitchen’s hearty soup-and-sandwich combo
Wholesome soups, hearty sandwiches and homey baked goods are the big draws for this busy midtown lunch spot. We opt for the classic soup-and-sandwich combo. Hot off the grill, two hash-marked Ace multigrain toasts envelop the paper-thin gala apple slices, which come smothered by gooey aged white cheddar cheese. Finished with fresh thyme, parsley and a light drizzle of honey, the sandwich balances fresh flavours with comforting textures. And while spring can’t come soon enough, we get hints of it in a smooth cup of potato and fennel soup. True to its moniker, the oat and bran Superfood muffin ($2.75) packs raisins, apricots, walnuts and flax seeds under its crusty cap, adding a nutritious mouth-sweetener to the healthy combo.
The cost: $10.72
The time: A speedy 25 minutes, including a four-minute wait for our freshly grilled sandwich.

I am addicted to the Superfood Muffin! It’s the best muffin in Toronto. It’s usually sold out by the time I get there for lunch.
I am addicted to everything at Delica. In fact I think I might have to grab that combo for lunch tomorrow. I might like their cupcakes a bit more than the muffins, but I a sucker for anything chocolate.
I work in the St.Clair and Yonge neighbourhood and visit Delica twice a week. What I love about this place is the obvious quality of the ingredients. It’s also a treat to have great service when you’re getting take-out. Devin the owner or Maria the manager are so gracious and helpful.
Where’s the beef?
Where’s the beef? Good question. Too bad they didn’t mention the roast beef with brie sandwich. Unbelievably good!
Hands down one of the best ruaeatrsnts in the city. Have never been there for lunch, but I have chosen the risoto special (pumpkin, I think) and it was very good. Ditto on heading to Round Corner for good drinks to wait for your table to be ready. Great review!
