“Cafe This Way beats 2 Cats”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

Yesterday we had a custom egg white omelet and pancakes, bacon, home fries, and gluten free toast at 2 Cats. Today we had two custom egg white omelets, turkey bacon, corned beef hash, home fries, and gluten free toast at Cafe This Way. Cafe This Way had more ingredients one could add to the omelet and the prices were listed on the menu, unlike 2 Cats. The kitchen at Cafe This Way was much faster than 2 Cats. The portions at Cafe This Way were larger than at 2 Cats. The selection and quality of teas was better at Cafe This Way than at 2 Cats. The orange juice was fresh squeezed at 2 Cats but not at Cafe This Way. Finally, 2 Cats charged $55 while Cafe This Way charged $38.

“Hipster in the best sort of way!”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

The food was excellent with choices for meat lovers, vegans and vegetarians. The space is open and inviting and some people even brought their dogs. You don't feel rushed to eat and go. The coffee was excellent and they serve Ghiradelli hot chocolate. I can't find that in San Francisco and that's where Ghiradelli is made! The food is of high quality with wild Maine blueberries and fresh fruit sides. The prices were reasonable and the service was professional: the staff was not overly attentive yet you didn't feel neglected either. Try the oatmeal with blueberries and bananas - it was hot, filling and delicious!

“Cozy, quiet breakfast”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

This place is slightly hard to find, as it is nestled in a side street behind other stores and homes, but very cute. My husband and I ate outside on the deck which is covered on top and has plastic blinds they pull down when it rains so people can still enjoy sitting outside. Breakfast was ok. I mean, breakfast is breakfast--nothing bad but nothing special. So to me, if it isn't bad then it's good. Service was friendly, too. If you're on a time crunch I wouldn't recommend coming here because it did take a lot longer to get our food than at Jordan's (it didn't take forever, so no worries).

“Dinner review - 1st one - Great!”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

This is a cozy restaurant down a side street but well worth finding for a great breakfast or dinner. We started with a small dinner on our first day in town. The order included; “The Littlebit” a wonderful dish with melted asiago cheese and topped with roasted garlic, roasted peppers and olive tapenade. This is an amazing starter and the crispy edges of the cheese are worth fighting over. Then we moved on to the “Austrian fruit salad”, interesting mixture of indigents but this one did not taste as good as it looked or sounded. We purposely ate light so that we could go for a desert, so we had the “Blueberry Pie” and the “French Chocolate Pot de crème” .
WOW, I highly recommend both of these, the blueberries were amazing but the chocolate Pot was amazing, if you are in need of or wanting a chocolate fix, then hit this up. We are in Bar Habar for another week, we will be back.
