Mainly a burger and sandwich place now but that doesn't do it justice. These are really gourmet cooked entrees on a bun, with fresh local sides. Even that doesn't capture the just darn good eats you'll consistently get here . . . from the pulled pork sliders to the blackened catfish sandwich to the HUGE burgers, this is a cafe done right. Want a little more gourmet in your life, go next door to Mildred's or order the Mildred's menu for 10% off at New Deal! Bert Gill, owner/chef, is a Gainesville treasure. Oh, and don't forget the $1 off the great selection of craft brews during happy hour. The wife and I go here at least once a week and sometimes more if we need a lift. Sometimes it's a little warm or even smokey due to the open kitchen, but worth the bother. Just ask to sit in the back.
