This Black-owned neighborhood cafe and pastry shop, which is open for takeout and delivery Tuesday through Saturday, is known for their sandwiches. While a good sandwich may be the quickest way to put a smile on our face, the all-day breakfast, specifically the French toast, is the main attraction. The slices of French toast are thick, perfectly sweet, and are mixed with cinnamon. And whether you stick with the seasonal berry compote that comes with each batch or drown your slices in maple syrup, you can’t go wrong.
