My second home.
Posted on 07 / 23 / 2008
This is my favorite place to go, period. It's such a staple in the community and if you live in the neighborhood, it's impossible to go there without running into someone you know. Sometimes it gets crowded, particularly weekend mornings because it's quite a popular spot and super easy to walk to. In this case, it's understandable for the cafe workers to be unable to constantly look after everyone. They take orders, make the food, then call your name and bring it over to you. They might be too busy preparing for a breakfast rush or a lunch rush to notice that customers are leaving and to wish them a good day. That's just how it is. If you actually talk to any of the workers, you will know there's no way they would be rude like that on purpose.
Anyway, my favorites (always 100% vegetarian and pretty much everything can be made vegan):
Seitan Philly, BBQ Tofu Sandwich, Tempeh Reuben, Biscuits n' Gravy, Breakfast Muffin, Taco Tuesdays!, Pizza Saturdays!, not to mention all of the delicious side dishes sold in cup- and bowl-sized portions that they have available in the deli case.
Oh, and always, ALWAYS try the soups. They never let you down. Perfect for rainy or blustery winter days.
I love this place so much, can you tell? I've spent hours here with just a book or local paper and a bottomless cup of coffee...
DELICIOUS, AFFORDABLE, FRIENDLY, FRIENDLY PLACE
quite small, gets too crowded sometimes, portions may depend on who's cooking
