Albany Cafe new on Solano

Glencora | Dec 19, 201004:53 PM

A cafe has recently opened at 1309 Solano in a spot that's been closed for a long time -- I think it was a tapas place before this. The menu is mostly Vietnamese -- sandwiches, iced coffee and tapioca drinks, spring rolls, also Italian sodas. The prices are low. Banh mi are from 2.95 for vegetarian or B.B.Q. chicken to 3.95 for the crab. The pate, steamed pork and B.B.Q. Pork combo (3.25) sounds interesting. I will definitely try it soon. The space is awkward -- long and skinny in front and then a larger space in back. I spent many dull hours there when it was the Crayon Cafe and my son was a toddler. I'm glad to see something new there.
