Had lunch at Guglhupf's new cafe

The have a nice assortment of soups, sandwiches, salads, and plates. I had the charcuterie (sic) plate, which came with slices of proscuitto, something similar to mortadella, neuschenken (???)-- a German dry salami, slices of boiled egg, cornichons, mustard, and a basket of slices of three different slices of their own bread. It was a bit pricey at $8.95 but I thoroughly enjoyed it. My wife had the roasted beet sandwich with a side of radish threads marinated in a sweet citrusy dressing (sounds strange but was quite delicious) for ~$6. I'd say the main things going for the place is the freshness of the ingredients, fair portions for the price charged (can't say that for Mad Hatter's or Fowler's), and a nice indoor/outdoor dining setting (at is, once the construction is finished). I'd say the food quality is on par with Foster's Market just down the street except after lunch you can pop in to the bakery and get desserts (we had the panna cotta and mango mousse, both sublime) and breads to go.

I saw the owner walk buy so I decided to talk to her. She told me they are not open for dinner yet. They are in the process of hiring and training. She hopes to start serving dinner by the end of the year, but since Christmas is a very busy time of the year for her, it may not be possible until early next year.
