Ants Pants Launches Dinner

Ants Pants Cafe at 2212 South Street is adding dinner service, starting tonight. It’s a full menu of small plates, salads, sandwiches and larger plates. A departure for the Australian themed cafe that until now has been known for bacon stacks and Violet Crumble milkshakes. We’re intrigued to try the Aussie Burger with grilled pineapple, roasted beets and an over medium egg.
