More Than a Bistro – Pound for Pound
- Desserts are simple yet sinful – and worth every calorie. Don’t miss the caramel brownie topped with vanilla ice cream and espresso (we went with decaf). It’s an addictive combo that will have you fighting for the last bite.
- Don’t forget that this was first a coffee shop, and they take coffee very seriously. They serve award-winning Kickapoo coffee that is organic, sustainable, fair-trade – and utterly delicious.
Good to Know
- While the dishes are of white-tablecloth caliber, the vibe of the restaurant is as casual as a coffeehouse. That’s not to say it isn’t charming. The exposed brick, sliver tin ceiling, butter-hued pendant lights and red-painted walls lend more drama and elegance than your average coffeehouse, but in a decidedly un-stuffy way.
- Happy hour is from 5 – 7pm nightly, with $5 glasses of wine and $4 beers, except for Duvel, which is $6.
- Outdoor seating includes four tables on the sidewalk out front and a garden patio out back that will seat 30 or so diners.

·Sommelier Phil Heyser is avid in promoting small-estate and small-production wines; each entrée has both a wine and a beer pairing suggestion.
·Good values on the wine list include the Chateau de Vaugelas Corbieres 2010, which sells for $8 per glass and $29 per bottle. Heyser says the grapes pick up the essence of the herbs that grow near the vines.
