This neighborhood coffee shop in Lakeview offers more than meets the eye. Not only will you find a wide range of Metropolis coffee and espresso drinks, but there's also a full menu of house-made cafe fare, as well as gelato and healthful shakes and smoothies made with Yoguccino, a nonfat-yogurt base. Breakfast means favorites such as a smoked salmon bagel with all of the usual accoutrements (cream cheese, capers, tomato, red onion, cucumber) and challah French toast with seasonal berries and marscapone cream, while lunch-time sandwiches lean toward standard options such as turkey, roast beef and tuna salad. Dessert hounds flock to the house-made red velvet cake, one of a few sweet temptations available at the counter.
