The Bay Cafe
New Restaurant in the Bret Harte
(Border of Dimond and Laurel Districts)

The Bay Cafe opened yesterday at 2818 MacArthur Blvd (at Coolidge). After hearing kudos from local business extraordinaires Ruth and Diane, I thought I'd check out the new eating place across the street from my work. The owners have done a nice job of redoing the interiors, updating the kitchen, new paint and furniture. There's now a pizza oven! They plan to expand their seating to include several outdoor tables.

The menu (below) includes good sandwiches, burgers, pizza/calzones and some nice breakfast options. And it's a good deal. $5 for a sandwich/burger with fries/chips. I got a cheeseburger which was good, made fresh as well as the fries. They also have a great can-do attitude salted with humor in terms of dealing with the often overwhelming student population of
Bret Harte Middle School in the afternoon. It's a great walk-to-place for those of us that live and work in between the Dimond and Laurel Districts. This year I've heard several times people declaring that they'd like to have a breakfast joint that they can walk to on the weekend. We'll now they have no excuse. I'll be going back.

Here's a few shots of the new restaurant
