Paloma Cafe is an all-day spot in the Bywater destined to become part of your morning routine. There’s no real theme to the menu, but you’ll find everything from yogurt and granola and shakshuka at breakfast to a great lunchtime roast pork torta, along with high quality coffee. It’s easy to spend a lot of time here, because of the comfortable space and nice staff, but also because you can quickly transition from coffee to cocktails and not think twice. After you stop by for breakfast or an early lunch, walk to Crescent Park on the river or grab a drink by the pool at The Country Club.
