Madison Kitchen is the perfect neighborhood cafe: everyone knows each other, there’s a big glass case with lots of salads and other delicious things on display, and they even do fancy Thanksgiving catering. You’re coming here for a quick quiche, frittata, housemade pastry, or breakfast sandwich with crispy bacon and an incredible basil aioli, but while we’re on the subject of Thanksgiving, you’re going to want to leave with the Madison Street Special (smoked turkey, white cheddar, apples, basil aioli, cranberry sauce, and arugula on cider wheat bread) to eat for lunch later.
