Junior's Cafe Restaurant Review

: The hipster vibe at Junior's reflects the eclectic bohemian nature of the Buckman neighborhood. A multitude of vegan and vegetarian breakfast and lunch options are offered, along with plenty for carnivores to enjoy as well. Indulge in vegan french toast with lots of fresh fruit, or order a "superhero tofu" scramble with vegetable sausage, tomatoes and spinach. Omnivores will go for the ham and caramelized onion omelet, cheddar garlic grits with red eye gravy, or spicy chicken sausage. Dishes are enhanced with unexpected flavor combinations, such as the fennel-leek hash. Lunch items such as burgers, Brie and bacon sandwiches, a pork loin sandwich laden with garlicky mayonnaise, and polenta with greens round out the offerings. Consider, too, the fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice mimosa, a delightful version of "the hair of the dog that bit you." In warm weather months, a few outdoor tables flank the big storefront windows. Inside, find comfortable seating in gold-sparkled vinyl booths. Wherever you sit, the coffee is always strong and hot, and friendly servers bring refills without being reminded. Prices are affordable and portions more than ample. At prime dining times, expect a wait.
