Great for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

20 Jan

Luna is a perfect place to grab brunch on a Sunday afternoon. The restaurant is filled with crystal glasses full of burgundy liquid, shelves of baked bread and customers full and merry. The atmosphere is warm and inviting as the sounds of crisp bacon sizzling on the skillet and the buzz of people chatting fill the room.   The breakfast is delicious and cheap. For under $10 you can order cinnamon french toast topped with maple bananas or warm steel cut oats with cranberries, maple and steamed milk. I would suggest ordering black coffee with your brunch because it comes in a white mug, with a saucer of milk and sugar. The lunch and dinner menus are more expensive but the restaurant and bakery still serves and a great place to eat anytime of the day. Happy Hour occurs from 4-6 p.m. daily where you can get $2 off cocktails, $4 off wine and $1 off all beers. Luna provides cheap yet fancy appetizers during Happy Hour as well.

Luna receives fresh bread from Bouzies Bakery daily. Customers can purchase an assortment of specialty bread as well as Luna’s specialty bread. Luna provides customers with catering services and special (expensive) activities. February 7  marks Luna’s Duckhorn Wine Dinner. For $95, you can get five courses and four specialty wines. Valentine’s day is coming up, and a dinner for two at Luna would be a great way to spend the evening.

Back to the 1950’s

7 Jan

Ferguson’s Café is nestled amongst other local shops and galleries in the middle of Garland Avenue. This family owned restaurant makes you feel as if you stepped into a 1950’s Diner. The floor is covered in a splash of yellow and white tile and the soda fountain and bar stools sit neatly in the middle of the room. The friendly atmosphere invites adults with their buttery biscuits topped with thick gravy and the Eggs Benedict served with the perfect amount of lemony tang in a sauce that covers the sunny side up eggs. Children jump at the chance to sit at the bar and watch the warm chocolate layering the tops of the sweet vanilla ice cream. Don’t plan on being ignored by the waiters and waitresses; in fact be prepared to feel like a close friend because the service is plenty and laughter seems to sweep over even the grumpiest of guests. This little café stands out from others on Garland Ave because most places close between 4 and 6, while Ferguson’s is open until 8. Come over to 804 W. Garland Ave for breakfast, lunch or dinner for 10$ or under; you will not regret it.
