A delicious sandwich for every weekday at Judi’s Bakery Cafe

There is so much to love about Judi’s Bakery Café in North Kansas City, but we are here today to discuss a ridiculously great lunch deal: Every weekday at Judi’s, a fiver gets you a full-size sandwich on bread baked in-house (except the wraps), a bag of chips and a house-baked cookie.
There is so much to love about Judi’s Bakery Café in North Kansas City: bacon fritters, breakfast egg sandwiches on flaky homemade croissants, buttery, beautifully decorated sugar cookies for all occasions and the best jelly-filled doughnuts in town, in my opinion. But we are here today to discuss a ridiculously great lunch deal: Every weekday at Judi’s, a fiver gets you a full-size sandwich on bread baked in-house (except the wraps), a bag of chips and a house-baked cookie. And it’s a different sandwich every day, so this could be the last lunch tip you ever need. The sandwiches are top-shelf, too. We tried them all to be sure. Here’s the lineup: Monday: Italian panini Tuesday: Turkey wrap with roasted red pepper sauce Wednesday: Chicken Caesar salad wrap Thursday: Turkey panini Friday: Smoked ham and Swiss on pumpernickel Owner Judi White of Shawnee is celebrating her bakery’s 35th anniversary this year. (She opened a second location at the Legends in Kansas City, Kan., six years ago.) Judi’s Bakery has a legion of loyal customers up north but remains largely undiscovered by office workers south of the river, even though the nondescript storefront on Burlington is just across the Missouri 9 bridge from downtown. Although a big part of Judi’s lunch business is carryout, there are several booths and tables with comfortable lounge-type chairs if you prefer dining in. Here’s a tip: Make sure you bring an extra couple of bucks when you come for your five-buck sandwich. The odds of being able to leave without a doughnut or pastry are against you.
