|Highland Cafe is just a few doors down from Cafe de Leche|
It's hard to go wrong with more good coffee, but this changeover is another sign that Highland Park (or at least York Blvd.) is really changing fast. Someday I'd like to see another breakfast spot like Cacao that combines great coffee with creative Mexican/South American breakfast dishes -- maybe French toast with goat cajeta?
Ba is nearly open down the street and Garvanza's just might open one of these days. We tried Highland Park Kitchen, the much-needed makeover of Marty's, the other night. The window along York is indeed a big improvement. But the roaming magician and air-headed waitress who kept asking "Did we save room for dessert?" and "Are we going to order drinks"? were a little too intrusive for a relaxing evening, and the food wasn't anything we would rush back for.
Is anyone getting nostalgic already for the old Highland Park, or do more restaurant choices make up for losing some of the neighborhood's character?
