Leonidas Cafe in SM is now open

igj | Aug 16, 2004 05:19 PM

After walking by this place every day for several months, it was finally open today. I popped in to talk to the staff:
-open at 10am, for now, but shooting for 7am eventually
-little in the way of pastries, for now, but aiming to have a full case of goodies for snacking
-they have 6 types of hot chocolate (plain, white, raspberry, orange, peppermint and mexican) - will do these iced, as well
-will add esperesso to any of the above for mochas - they call the hot chocolate and the mochas their signatures
-standard menu of other espresso-based drinks
-belgian chocolates @ $28/lb. -- they had a very cute little girl handing out samples today - I had a nice (but $28/lb nice???) dark chocolate with cocoa nibs sample

With the new Le Pain Quotidien down the block, this is turning into Belgian alley! Where are the mussels and lambic? :)
