The skilled chefs at Bacalls Café have spent nearly 30 years pleasing patriotic palates with a menu that bursts at the seams with classic American cuisine. Fuel table talk with an appetizer of thinly sliced onion straws ($4.95), or plunge spoon-first into a rotating selection of Stockmarket soups ($2.95/cup), which fluctuates more often than forecasts of bear attacks. The southwest spicy burger sates patty-craving bellies with a half-pound of meat seasoned with southwest spices and served with pepper jack cheese, chipotle mayo, and jalapeños ($9.95). Rival Mom's home cooking with a plate of meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and fresh veggies ($10.50), or champion a chicken stir-fry served over rice pilaf ($12.45). Bacalls Café¬––with its classic brick façade, yellow awnings, and handsome tree-lined storefront––welcomes guests into an endearing, vintage-style dining space replete with a wooden bar, checkerboard tiles, and Calvin Coolidge cardboard cut-out.
