Went to the new location on North Tejon for a Saturday evening dinner. The food was tasty and the servers were well-informed and attentive.
Lots of real flavors, interesting combinations, and suitable portion sizes for the price ($9-$23). Our group liberally shared a representative set of dishes, thus I was able to find several things that I would partake of on my next visit. I chose the pan seared duck, which was perfectly cooked and well paired with the sweet potato/parsnip puree. The desserts were also rich and delicious.
My only complaints concern breaking in the new location. The dim interior made the miniscule text on the 1-page menu VERY difficult to read, and you'll have to raise your voice to have a conversation in the somewhat noisy dining area. Nevertheless, this is a place worth re-visiting.
I had lunch at Fifty Fifty Coffee House last month. The Pressed Turkey Sandwich was delicious and the Fifty Fifty Iced Coffee is addictive (I had 2). The service was also great, and I loved the atmosphere. I will be back.
Please disregard my poor excuse of a review above. The owner solved the issues that we had and he did it with a much better attitude than I did. Go and enjoy pjs bistro and try the bacon and blue cheese burger, it is excellent.
Great, unique food with many vegetarian/vegan options. Live music is pretty good. The patio in the summer is the best.
Fabulous food and drinks - great service. Live music would be nice.
comfort food in the form of sandwiches!
The perfect dive! Great food and fabulous service. The owner is a little nuts but is rarely there.
I was recently diagnosed with a gluten allergy (celiac disease) and it's been kind of a nightmare trying to find a restaurant with appetizing gluten-free fare. Following my first meal at Coquette Creperie, I realized that this gluten allergy business wasn't going to be so bad after all. The food is absolutely delicious and the variety of tastes from crepe to crepe never allow boredom to enter into the equation. The atmosphere is inviting and comfortable and the staff have always been friendly and extremely attentive.
i was afraid to try a "gluten free" crepe but my partner is very intolerant of the gooey stuff so I gave in...glad I did. kinda magical filling in my bada bing (spicy italian sauce and great sausages) and we even had to try a dessert with fruit filling..a few cocktails later we realized we just didn't want to leave the cool comfort zone. ..who needs gluten anyway
The make your own salad choices are superb. I"m not a big fan of the usual boring green stuff that's normally thrown on the table, so this offering makes my day.... try it with grilled chicken, chick peas, roasted almonds and peppers.... sesame seed dressing to top it off.....hmmmmmmm....I actually walk about a mile from my office to get this for lunch about once every other week.
We've been to PJ's twice now, and both times we were not disappointed! This is the type of food I grew up eating and loving, cooked by my Hungarian grandma, only better! (sorry, Grandma) Their stuffed cabbage is rich and delicious, the pork cutlet melts in your mouth. I tried the smoked salmon potato pancakes last night and thought I was in heaven. Try the Euro fires with Hungarian goulash ladled over them! YUM! Also, the meatloaf with mushroom gravy and dumplings was absolutely wonderful. I can't wait for family to come visit so I can take them to PJ's!
Corner Cafe is nothing short of delicious. The soups, the sandwiches (hot AND cold!) and the salads are all to die for. But the best part? The absolute REASON for going? The french fries. I'd venture to say they may be the best in town. And if you need the perfect sidekick to the fries, go for the bacon cheeseburger. It melts in your mouth.
Also, the service is impeccable and if not for the somewhat steep prices on some items (expect to pay $11+ for a sandwich, fries, and a drink) I'd rate Corner Cafe 5 Stars.
Great casual environment with not-too-expensive food. Love the spinach-feta quesadillas and the turkey avocado sandwich. And the YUMMY carrot cake.
Visit Wines of Colorado (just barely up the pass!) in the spring/summer/early autumn for a true Colorado experience. Choose an outdoor table and enjoy nature's ambience with a big, fat, delicious (and lean!) buffalo burger — their stand out menu option — and red potatoes. A great place to go as a group and you'll almost feel like you're in the comfort of your own back yard (except someone else does all the cooking and cleaning up!)
If the Mediterranean Diet is like eating at Med Cafe, I could follow it. I rarely order off the menu (although every time I have, I've been pleased) but opt for the "salad by the pound". A scoop of baba ghanouj, a scoop of Greek salad, some red pepper hummus, a spoonful of kalamata olives and a soft, warm pita... it can be a different meal each time. Their soups are good too and they have a soup and salad special that's the perfect size for lunch.
