A brand new gourmet food truck named Sigsbee’s started breakfast service this week. The original debut on Monday, July 23, 2012 had to be postponed, due to unexpected mechanical problems with the truck.
The truck serves Four Barrel coffee and baked goods from Pastry Cupboard, during breakfast. For lunch, the menu lists sandwiches like roast beef, roast pork, roast turkey, and a veggie melt for $8.50 to $9.50, plus salads priced at $7 to $8.50. Today, the breakfast menu features a delicious egg, bacon and fontina cheese sandwich. Also a Deviled Egg sandwich ($6.50) is available for both breakfast and lunch.
The business name for this vendor was derived from a vaudeville act featured at the 1915 San Francisco Exposition, titled “the horse with the human brain.” Mr. W.A. Sigsbee and his clever horse Captain, performed math tricks (addition, subtraction and multiplication), and color matching exercises (at the time, people assumed that horses were color blind). Note for trivia fans, name is not related to the U.S. Navy’s Charles Sigsbee.
Though this food truck has no horse, and the staff doesn’t perform any magic tricks. The idea for this theme was to evoke a time period of the city, in which classic good food was the norm.
