But, no. Cafes are happening again. There's Java Junction on King's Hwy. Now there's Rachel Ginsburg Stone's diner, A Stone's Throw Cafe & Catering, at 729 Jordan.
This week I had the veggie sandwich with turkey ($6.50) and a side of sweet potato fries (.75) and it was scrumptious.
Thursday morning I'm going in for the arts media breakfast (every other Thurs) and am expecting a hearty serving of the basics. "We have great omelettes!" says Ginsburg. "Too, our biscuits are very good."
Ginsburg gutted the funky kitchen in what had been the P&S Hotel and later, the Mid-City Motor Hotel. "I chose this location because we needed a restaurant over here. People downtown and at the hospitals needed a hot, hearty meal. I looked for the right location for 2 years." She added that since a feature in Forum Magazine last week she's been mobbed.
A Stone's Throw Cafe
7 am to 4 pm daily.
