Biksbee’s in Bethel

Finding a new place with great food always makes me happy, particularly when that place is close to where I live. I had a bad cold last week so a friend did a search for soup places nearby and came upon this cafe called Biksbee’s right in the heart of Bethel’s downtown. Although I went for the soup, I have become hooked on their sandwiches. I had a prime rib sandwich (fresh roasted prime rib with horseradish sauce on a roll) and chicken noodle soup on the first day. Yes, I go by the book when it comes to curing a nagging cold. It was a sunny day, we sat outside and had a good time.

Then I had to go back a couple of days later when I realized I had left my jacket wrapped around the back of one of their chairs. That was the day I tried the big and toasty¬†Biksbees (pictured above). It’s a sandwich lover’s dream come true. Fresh roasted beef, crispy bacon, cold lettuce, juicy slices of tomato and mayonnaise on toasted Italian bread. It came with a slice of pickle and chips. The sandwich itself was so good that I will probably go there every now and then. The service was friendly and the place was spick-and-span. If I have one complaint, it’s the chips. They were small packets of Lays Classic Salted, something I can pick off a store shelf. A joint as charming as this, deserves a plate of hand-cut fries, oddly shaped and preferably fresh out of the deep fryer.
