Though it got its start as an oven-baked sub shop, this Ukrainian Village breakfast and lunch spot now has a versatile menu beyond sandwiches, including breakfast plates, pancakes, omelets, salads, pastas and more. Neighborhood brunchers pack the place on weekends to partake in the comfort food and even a morning cocktail; there’s a host of beers, wines and specialty drinks such as bloody marys or Jack and ciders, all with affordable pricetags. The specialty here is south-of-the-border favorites such as chilaquiles or the chorizo and egg platter with rice and beans. In the evenings, don’t be surprised to see private parties in the space, which is decorated with pieces by local artists and other quirky wall hangings.
