Anodyne at 43rd
Anodyne uses real dishes and compostable containers, and it only features coffee from top local roasters, including Peace Coffee, Great River Roasters, and MorningStar Coffee from Brazil and Mexico. The coffeehouse's breakfast menu features the specialty Anodyne oatmeal (organic oats cooked in apple cider with pears, wild rice, craisins, raisins, pecans, and brown sugar with half-and-half or soy milk, $4.85) and a variety of waffles, including banana-pecan ($6.25). The lunch and dinner menu includes everything from sandwiches to vegan selections. The grilled triple cheese is oozing with a trifecta of dairy bedded between two slices of multigrain and served with chips and a pickle ($5.50). To quash comfort food cravings, try the mac 'n' cheese, homemade with cheddar, swiss, and parmesan cheeses ($6.95), or vegan out with a vegan plate full of veggie chili, greens with balsamic, and grilled vegan cornbread ($6.75). Anodyne also serves Sebastian Joe's ice cream if your sweet teeth require sweet attention.
