Its not fancy, the prices are reasonable, the food decent and theres a nice outdoor patio.
There are a few pasta and veggie salads, like fresh asparagus, tomato and mushroom in a garlic vinaigrette.
All sandwiches are $5 (half sandwiches $3.75) and it bought me a large meatloaf sandwich on a sweet roll. Ask to hold the ketchup. It was applied too heavily. In fact, specify how much of any condiment youd like. Bubis likes its mayo.
The cookies are house made and I enjoyed the soft gingery pumpkin cookie topped with white frosting.
The soup of the day was chicken gumbo ($2.75). The most expensive dish on the menu which soared in price compared to the rest was the $7 artichoke frittata, salad and bread.
Also available were quiche ($3.50) pizza slices ($2.75), spring rolls, dolmas, and baked stuffed potatoes.
Special sandwiches were:
Smoked turkey with curry and fontina
Roasted eggplant with swiss, oil and vinegar and mayo. Watch that mayo.
Some of the cookies were Russian tea, lemon, chocolate chip and brownies.
This place has the feel and look of the 80s to it. It has been at this location for 8 years and was previously located on Shattuck and Virginia Im sort of vaguely remembering it. Customers seemed to be regulars on a first name basis with the staff. Lots of magazines and newspapers. The restaurant also delivers and caters.
Not a destination by any means, but it is a quiet, little green oasis in that part of the town where the prices are good.
It is around the corner from Café Trieste, near Westside Bakery Café (wow, ages since Ive been there) and Juans Place (Mexican)
