Lock 3 Farmer's Market
Friday during the summer; 11am to 1:30 pm
Downtown Akron on Main Street
The Diamond Deli
378 South Main St., Akron, OH
So, I took this as an opportunity to hit the Diamond Deli. I like a good sandwich, and the Diamond Deli is the place to get one- it's one of my first picks for lunch when I'm in Akron; right up there with Luigi's Pizza. If you want corned beef, this is the place to go when you're in Akron.
I ordered the Chad's "Wait ?Till You Hear This Story!"- it's hot corned beef, pastrami, swiss cheese, and hot mustard on rye bread. I opted to not have the sandwich grilled; the corned beef had enough fat to add flavor, but not so much that I would call it fatty, and the pastrami had a good, peppery flavor. All in all, a really good sandwich. As a matter of fact, it's so good that I've gotten the same thing every time I've visited- I have to try something else the next time.
style="font-family: Arial; ">I wanted to get some coffee, so I thought I'd make a stop at Mocha Maiden. I'd seen their sign on a building off of Market Street for a couple of years now, but I hadn't ever bothered to stop in. I was a little confused at first- I pulled down Maiden Ln which off of Market Street and pulled into one of the parking places in front a couple of shops were there were some tables and chairs. One of the shops looked like a clothing shop; the other was a place called Urban Eats. It didn't sound like a coffee place, but I thought that it might be the best place to start. When I asked about Mocha Maiden, the woman behind the counter said that they had changed the place over to Urban Eats a few months ago. However, they still served coffee and espresso drinks.

The atmosphere was bright and had an eclectic look, and the food offerings that I saw listed on the wall sounded tempting. Not that I hadn't enjoyed my sandwich from Diamond Deli, but I wished I hadn't already eaten. I ended up ordering a latte (which was very good) and drank it outside at one of the umbrella tables. Even though I was sitting on a deck in an ally facing a parking lot, they've made good use of the space and there was a nice atmosphere. I plan on stopping back soon to try the food!
