Brothers Omar and Christian Solis didn't just name this organic-focused Bridgeport spot for their mother, whom their nephew calls Nana. They brought her in to make dessert. Mom is Cafe 28 pastry purveyor Maria Solis, and she's responsible for everything from cookies to breakfast pastries. Apart from Solis' sweets, Nana offers an American breakfast, lunch and dinner menus with a Latin twist. Look for staples such as French toast, omelets and chilaquiles at breakfast, and a lunch lineup that includes salads, sandwiches and a handful of different burgers. Chef Guy Miekle's dinner menu changes seasonally, with entrees running the gamut from grilled skirt steak to buckwheat crepes with foraged mushrooms, spinach, fava beans and preserved lemon cream. The Solis clan isn't new to the neighborhood. Tacos Erendira has been in the family for years, as has the century-old corner building that houses Nana. The renovated spot maintains a vintage look, and there's quick-serve counter up front where you can grab Metropolis coffee and pastries to go, as well as counter seating at the small coffee bar if you'd rather settle in with a steaming cup of cafe con leche.
