    Counter Culture Coffee and cheddar+ scones - a perfect way to start the day! Of course, everything at Cakes & Ale and the Bakery is delicious. Also delicious is the London Fog.

    Need place to sit and work. Great pour over coffee. Salads are heavily dressed so get on side

    If you prefer tea over coffee, I highly recommend the London Fog (Earl Grey latte with a bit of lavender syrup).

    Can you say "ham & cheese croissants" just like Homer Simpsons says "doughnuts?"

    The lunch-only grain bowl made CL's 100 Dishes to eat before you die, and with an ever-changing composition of honest goodness it's easy to see why. Read more

    The seasonal grain bowl rotates often and is quite filling, even for a carnivore http://www.savoryexposure.com/2011/09/the-bakery-at-cakes-ale/
