Tucked alongside quaint shops and galleries, this deli offers homemade soups, bagels, muffins, espressos and lattes. Pumpernickel and spinach feta bagels are tasty, as are the unique cream cheese flavors. The smaller downtown location is ideal for a quick weekday breakfast or lunch.
Four area locations, including the Taphouse in the Highlands. Artisan pizzas and panino sandwiches stand out. The Pollotate — an aromatic rosemary, chicken and potato pie — has racked up national awards.
Sample European cafe-style fare at this charming spot in Clifton. Try an espresso or cappucino for a morning pick-me-up. The lunch and dinner menus include salads and fresh-made paninis, steaks, pastas and grilled salmon, along with an assortment of pastries and authentic gelato. Whatever you do, don’t miss the pommes frites.
This unpretentious place will appeal to people who love two things: meat and beer. They cook pulled pork, ribs, chicken, and salmon in a smoker out front and offer a nice beer selection. Don’t miss “Beerhalla,” the backyard filled with putt-putt, cornhole, and beer pong games.
