Cafe Cacao

Went to Scharffen Berger's Cafe Cacao for lunch yesterday. About half the items on the menu was out because they're changing next week, so we all got the excellent press-grilled Niman ham and cheese sandwich with housemade pear mostarda and baby arugula salad, and shared an order of the fabulous fresh-fried potato chips.

Desserts were disappointing. We shared a pot de creme, which turned out to be a demitasse full of ganache, and a pave, which to my taste was insipid (needed a touch of salt in the batter). The hot chocolate was better than the hot cocoa but I could make better at home with Pernigotti.
