Cafe Eclectic Restaurant Review: This Midtown café may have a cup of joe in its logo, but it’s so much more than a standard coffeehouse. Café Eclectic is locally famous for its freshly baked desserts, such as donuts and strawberry cupcakes. And the dinner menu, heavy on sandwiches and salads, proudly proclaims the restaurant’s use of local and regional meats and produce. Angus beef from Neola Farms is the base for JJ’s Patty Melt, served on ciabatta with provolone and spicy mayo. The Strawberry Fields salad features fresh berries atop a bed of mixed greens with roasted pecans and crumbled goat cheese. Eclectic offers plenty of vegetarian options, but vegan diners should be warned that the black bean patty is not vegan. They do, however, sell a vegan tofu wrap and a veggie dog with caramelized onions. Bring canine friends as dogs may sit with their human companions on the breezy patio. Sunday brunch runs until 3 p.m., serving dishes that range from scrambled eggs and tofu scramble wraps to Scottish porridge and granola.
