No long food reviews here. Just the essentials on where to find best local eats to blow your mind, but not your budget. Twice a month, we challenge our team of foodies to scour the town for the best bites for two under $30. This is their latest discovery.
Why We Love It: This environmentally-conscious cafe is the perfect balance of healthy and delicious eats. Each brunch, lunch and dinner item on the menu is made from locally-sourced ingredients. The place is also vegan and gluten-free friendly, with most dishes $9 to $14 per entree. Those meals include huevo rancheros ($11) for brunch and the Caribbean turkey sandwich ($13.50) for lunch. Kevin and I decided to try the Green Dog BLT wrap ($13), made with roasted turkey, Busch’s hand cut smoked bacon, baby arugula, ripe tomato and basil mayonnaise. The wrap also included the choice of either a green salad, pineapple slaw, brown rice or corn chips. I went with the salad and Kevin ate the brown rice. Ultimately, we paid $27.82 for two guilt free and delicious lunches. I can also vouch for the huevo rancheros (two eggs served sunnyside up on a grilled tortillas with ranchero sauce, black beans, cheddar and salsa Verde) as a great Sunday brunch option.
