I had never had a Croque Monsieur sandwich until a couple of weeks ago at Civil Coffee Society. My go-to order would be one of their flavored teas or coffee but on one hungry night, I decided to go for this particular sandwich. The barista explained that it was basically a toasted turkey ham and cheese sandwich. He also said that I would love it; he was right. An accurate description of my experience would be that it was like biting into a cheese pizza or a lasagna for that matter. I found it quite filling and suitable for a light snack, or even dinner.
