A place like Pom Pom’s is exactly the reason klynn and I decided to start this blog. I cannot believe I’ve lived in here for nearly 12 years, and I only just this week discovered this great little Orlando sandwich shop. If you’re not familiar either, I can certainly understand why: it’s lodged away in a tiny strip center on Bumby Avenue (there’s also a location in East Orlando, on University Boulevard), and if you blink you’ll miss it.
Pom Pom’s has an extremely eclectic menu of sandwiches, teas, soups, and salads. One tip: if you’re going with a sandwich, choose something fairly simple. One thing I did notice is on many of the dishes, Pom Pom’s goes a tad overboard with “many flavors”. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but for example I had a pork sandwich, and it had like five really different, strong flavors. I ended-up just pulling the meat out and eating that.
Another really cute thing about this eatery is the artwork (which I’m assuming changes frequently) – it reminds me very much of The Peacock Room.
Pom Pom’s is quaint, and a little pricier than the average sandwich shop, but so worth it. Plus they’re open late, so it’s convenient for a late night snack or even after going out on the weekend. INSIGHT: If you absolutely love the bread your sandwich is served on, you can buy a loaf right there in the store!
Now, the ultimate reason to check-out Pom Pom’s:
