Chava Cafe, at Leland and Clark, is celebrating its Grand Opening today, and everyone's invited. See the flyer at the right (click to enlarge) for details.
You can find Chava on the web at chavacafe.com. Nothing there yet, but stay tuned.
Anybody know if customers of the cafe can use the building parking lot?
I know where I am going for dinner!
We just happened to walk past Saturday night and peaked in... It looked really nice. Glad to see it's open now.
A number of customers parked in the lot and the owners said it is for patrons. We went in this evening and there was alot of people there, they were slammed! ..The coffees were tasty and fresh (intelligensia) and the sandwiches were very yummy! We'll definitely be back... The free wifi worked great too...This is just what the neighborhood needs and I'm so glad it's not a chain i.e. Starbucks, etc. I heard the Blue Ocean sushi place next door was open too, not sure though!
My wife and I went. By the time we got there (about 6:30pm), they only had two types of sandwiches left. She had the cashew butter/gruyere, i had the cold lamb/polenta. I liked mine quite a bit, she said hers was just so-so. I do appreciate the free food though! If they happen to read this, here's one kink they need to work out: please take people's names when they place an order. They kept just calling out the food that was ready, and half the time it would just sit there for a few minutes...and even go unclaimed. A few times I thought it was mine (same order), but was told it wasn't. So please, take names, call them out, and give them the food instead of making people guess if it's theirs or the person who ordered before them (or after them for that matter). It will make everyone's life much easier.
