Little Spoon Cafe Is Now Open

little-spoon-cafe-sign-940

Little Spoon Cafe opened today at 15th and South Streets, in the former (and a bit weird) home to Baja Room. The space has been transformed into a super attractive cafe that is open for breakfast, lunch, and on some nights, dinner. We stopped in for a late lunch and enjoyed a BLT served with crispy bacon, on excellent bread.

The cafe is owned by area residents, Jeanne French and Julia McMeans. The chef is Lauren Geary, who was once the chef down the street, at the now closed Pumpkin Market. The cafe opens at 7 a.m. and offers quick breakfast options, plus breakfast sandwiches and burritos. Daily breakfast specials include a rotating selection of scrambles and galettes, a rustic pastry with seasonal filling.

Lunch offers soups, salads, sandwiches and a rotating choice of grilled cheeses. Little Spoon also stocks ice cream from Franklin Fountain, plus treats from Shane’s Candies.

Make: Coconut-Maple Quinoa Granola

I have to admit that sometimes I can be a tad judge-y when it comes to omission diets. There are tons of books touting dairy, gluten or sugar avoidance with amazing results guaranteed. I’ve consistently maintained a solid position on team “everything in moderation.” But while I still stand by my position, I’ve recently made a major modification out of necessity: my exclusively breast-fed baby hates when I eat dairy.

So here’s my new stance: Omission diets can be a lifesaver for certain people, if and when they actually help you feel better (or they help your baby not to scream like a fighting raccoon). This quinoa granola is a wonderful, high protein start to your day whether you’re avoiding dairy (or gluten, if you use gluten-free oats) or not. Serve up about a third of a cup (granola is high calorie, so watch your portions, please) with fresh fruit and almond milk for a quick and naturally sweet meal.

Way back in February, we featured a bunch of breakfast-for-dinner recipes in an edition of this weekly series, and you guys ate ‘em right up (pun totally intended). And since you all loved having breakfast for dinner so much (I mean, who doesn’t?) we figured we’d bring the theme back this week, with five delicious recipes that taste great with a morning cup o’ joe, and even better with a post-work margarita. Happy brinner-ing! Dreakfast-ing? Whatever. Happy cooking!

There are only a few foods that one can happily eat for every meal and pancakes are one of them.

No matter what time it is, pancakes can always be the answer to the question of “What would make me happy right now?” And here’s a list of some of our favorite spots to get the hot and fluffy dish.
