THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Antique Cafe Restaurant Review

: This tiny charmer derives its name from a 1890s bronze cash register with a Gallic-inspired elegance that sets the tone for the café's offerings. Dinner selections change daily but can include variations on the theme of panini as well as salads and burgers. A variety of pastries are always available to calm a sweet tooth; one may find lemon cake, apple brown betty and white chocolate and dried cherry cookies. You can opt for take-out or, if you're lucky, find a seat and dine in.

Delicious Elegance

It's a rare thing that a little cafe puts a smile on my face. There's just something about Antique Cafe that keeps me returning for more. Beautiful interior, though small, radiates a sense of welcome. I usually go for brunch or the occasional dinner by candle light, never leaving indisappointment. I have a weakness for their Steak Frites, which are juicy and delicious every time. For brunch it's the eggs benedict. They're known for their coffee, and I can confirm it's a bright spot about the place. The atmosphere relaxes you, even in such tight corners, between the jazz music (not live, unfortunately) and rotating arrangements of greenery, it's a special experience not to be missed.
