Bread & Ink Cafe Restaurant Review

: Bread & Ink Cafe is open for three meals a day and handles them all well. Everything is homemade, right down to the ketchup. At breakfast the go-to item is waffles, as is indicated by the restaurant's adjoining Waffle Window, which opens to the sidewalk and sells seasonal and sometimes unexpected waffle varieties. Or go for comfort food such as bagels and lox, bialys, herring salad, chopped liver and blintzes. Lunch and dinner hew to a generally Mediterranean theme, but far from exclusively. Try the rock Cornish game hen served in a sauce of kumquats, ginger, lime, curry and soy sauce. Popcorn shrimp salad with dried cranberries is a generous plate; the burgers aren't bad either. Leave room for desserts such as the cassata Siciliana (seven layers of pound cake with orange ricotta filling, candied citrus, bittersweet chocolate and chocolate espresso ganache) or a Belgian waffle hot fudge sundae. Happy hour snacks are tasty and filling, especially when paired with classic cocktails. The family-friendly atmosphere and white paper tablecloths make it easy to entertain children with a box of crayons.
