The Bourgeois Pig caters to an intellectual crowd that enjoys chess, books and challenging philosophical discussions. The cozy cafe's book-lined brick walls and well-worn wooden tables give it an 18th Century atmosphere. The menu makes it obvious this is a mecca for literary enthusiasts: "The Sun Also Rises" is smoked turkey grilled on sundried tomato bread with hummus, Swiss cheese, tomato, sprouts and onion; "Hamlet" is smoked Kentucky ham and brie on a mini-baguette; "The Old Man and the Sea" is tuna salad made with fresh dill, red onion, celery and sprouts on multigrain bread, topped with lettuce and tomato. Desserts include cakes, cookies and ice cream. Plenty of tea and coffee drinks, too.
