Longtime friends and awfully nice guys Jack and Zach transitioned from farmers market vendors to restaurateurs about six months ago, and they’ve got a good thing going. The menu, though limited, is enticing and nearly all locally sourced. We ordered the special house-made sausage sandwich ($7.50), which on the day we went was curry sausage on a hoagie with a side of crisp wafer-like house-made potato chips. The sausage could have used a bit more spice, given the moniker, but its sweet flavor was set off nicely by pickled red onions and greens, and the quality of the meat (from local Truck Patch Farms) shone through. A sausage, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich ($6) came with buttery, tasty hash browns. The English muffin could have been a little more toasty, but the sausage was unlike any you’ll find elsewhere: mildly spiced, no gristle-y nasty bits, and juicy enough to eat without condiments. With its unusual offerings—Natty Boh Old Bay sausage, house-made veggie patties—full complement of coffee bar drinks, and homey atmosphere, Jack and Zach’s is our new lunchtime favorite.
