Acme Cafe information
The black-and-white deco-style interior here is enough to warm up anyone on a rainy day – or maybe it's the comfy booths and retro-cool U-shaped counter. The hipsters have been flocking here since day one for hearty breakfasts and heaping comfort-food lunches flavored with a gourmet flourish: the meatloaf, chicken club and shrimp guacamole sandwiches are worth the trip.
A great spot for weekend brunch (if you can avoid the crowds), it's also perfect for afternoon coffee and a slab of house-baked fruit pie. For those traveling with sprogs, there's a good and healthy kids menu.
