The new gourmet café, Pickleman’s, which moved into the space formerly occupied by Red Mango, might just be the new hot spot for students looking to grab lunch on campus.
Pickleman’s menu offers a selection of 18 toasted sandwiches, soups, pizzas and salads. Right in the heart of where most foot traffic occurs near UMKC, Pickleman’s proves to be a wonderful addition to campus as an affordable eatery for students.
A sandwich shop menu with Applebee’s interior, the real wood paneling and stained glass light fixtures hanging above give the establishment a traditional, dine-in feel.
The employees have a thorough knowledge of the menu and are proficient in suggesting which items a newcomer might enjoy. Their charisma and enthusiasm make the experience that much more pleasant.
The menu is easy to read. House favorites and best-selling items are highlighted with charming little pickle icons. Of course, Pickleman’s offers half and whole Kosher dill pickles.
The toasted Italian Club is perfectly packed full of meat, cheese and veggies.
The Cafe Chop is a simple, light salad that complimented the Italian Club well.
Pickleman’s houses a Coca-Cola freestyle machine, a touch screen soda fountain that offers a wide array of beverages and added flavors, over 100 to be exact.
Pickleman’s is not only another welcomed addition for students, but also for the community and families in the area.
Pickleman’s is unique to the Midwest. With about 15 locations now and more on the way, Kansas City has what could turn into a much larger franchise. A new location at 75th Street and Wornall Road is scheduled to open this year.
Pickleman’s offers fresh food, an easy-going atmosphere, multiple locations and a price that is sure to build a band of loyal customers.
