We want to tell everybody we know about Soup Kitchen Cafe because this place has excellent and well-priced breakfast and lunch food - our favorites being the $8 shakshuka and a soup and half sandwich for $13. Plus, they have a full bar that’s stocked with local beers, and they make a couple of great house cocktails like the elderflower aperol spritz and a jalapeno margarita. It’s small and comfortable inside, and since it’s not a super popular spot for dinner, it’s easy to get in when you don’t want to wait 40 minutes for a table.
