Here and there I’ll be posting write-ups on hidden gems around the City. Yes, I do realize once I start promoting them they won’t be so hidden anymore! But there are some great venues, restaurants, boutiques and cafes worth mentioning for you to visit!
I’m a few days away from starting my new gig, so I’ve had some nice leisurely time to wake up on my own, have a little coffee and get in a great session of yoga at V Power Yoga.
V Power is located on Fifth Avenue and since I’ve been going there, Z and I (more of him) have been intrigued by a little café restaurant across the street.
Tucked away on a side street with hardly any foot or car traffic, this café is only open Monday through Saturday for breakfast and lunch and is casual and cozy, with the character and taste worth mentioning.
I opted for breakfast (even though it was past 10:30 a.m. they let us choose either lunch or breakfast!) and so I ordered the egg and cheese sandwich with bacon (pretty diner choice for me) and Z had the #27, a turkey bacon melt on a Panini with a side of rice pudding and an Albanian salad.
Side note – I highly recommend the Albanian salad. A dish filled with cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, peppers and feta cheese mixed in olive oil. Delish!
The food was quick and was just as good as the service behind the counter. All the meals are very affordable with breakfast costing around $3-$4 each and sandwiches served with chips (or you can sub fries) ranging between $5-$6.
Fresh muffins and cookies are baked daily and don’t forget the baklava on display!
With only two other people inside, we had the place basically to ourselves.
A good hunch to go, turned out to be a good decision.
This hidden gem is worth the trip over to Fifth Avenue near Spring Street if you’re in the area or if want to pick up a quick, inexpensive lunch to go.
For more information on the Warehouse Café, please call (614) 224-3134.
Hours of operation: Monday-Friday- 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday- 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
