Bread & Ink Cafe Restaurant Review: Bread & Ink Café’s menu may be brief, but it’s wide-ranging, from black bean burgers to steak and grilled shrimp. A $35 dinner option (choose an appetizer, salad, entrée and dessert) is a good value. At breakfast time, look for bagels and lox, bialys, herring salad, chopped liver and blintzes. But the most popular selections are the waffles served with homemade strawberry jam, fried chicken, or just plain caramelized sugar. Waffles also make an appearance on the dessert menu with a Belgian waffle hot fudge sundae. (The restaurant’s adjoining Waffle Window, which opens to the sidewalk and sells seasonal and unexpected flavors of to-go waffles, is another option for indulging waffle cravings.) 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.
