Stumbled upon Coles by accident. We had hoped to eat at another nearby place but it was closed. Coles was a less than suitable substitute. The decor is the nicest part of this restaurant. The host was preoccupied with his cell phone and only looked up to seat us when it became obvious we weren't going to leave. I guess we weren't hipster enough. Our server was friendly, but not attentive. The menu is limited and the food can only be best described as filling. The so-called originator of the French Dip produces a bland product. The bread and meat are no better than what you could find at a local supermarket. The jus used tastes on par with beef broth from Campbell's. The salads are good, but not exceptional. The Dark Chocolate pie is actually very good. Bottom line, it is obvious that Coles is not a sandwich place. For a true original French Dip sandwich, I will stick with Philippes.
