As the morning sun streams through Lemon Grove Deli’s windows, diners ponder the ultimate breakfast choice: sweet or savory. If they choose the former, they’ll excavate a belgian waffle from beneath an avalanche of strawberries and whipped cream. If the latter, they’ll bury bacon-and-cheese omelets under dollops of salsa, or enjoy a plate of huevos rancheros. The smoky scent of the grill signals the onset of lunchtime, when the eatery’s wooden tables fill with sandwiches inspired by flavors from California to New England, ranging from grilled pastrami to california cheesesteaks. Customers can also choose from their selection of loaded fries, including loaded gyros fries.
The gustatory artisans at Ono's Café populate their menu of Asian-fusion cuisine with a bounty of fresh ingredients that evoke the flavors of California and the distant Pacific Rim. Tables strain under the heft of such entrees as the macadamia-crusted salmon, which ladles a regal banana sauce atop grilled king salmon before showering the plate with an aromatic confetti of black thai rice and asian slaw ($17). Bearing a mosaic of temporary grill-mark tattoos, the kalbi short ribs ($14) waft their flame-kissed aromas across the dining room, and tempura-battered shrimp and vegetables snuggle alongside a salad with miso-raspberry vinaigrette to create the tempura mix ($11). Ono's Café proffers an array of delicate sushi delights, including assorted hand rolls ($4+) as well as a signature house roll, which gives softshell crab and cucumber a great big rice hug before layering albacore tuna, avocado, and a fully paid mortgage atop the creation. Visitors considering a drink can turn to Ono's beverage menu, which comprises beer, cocktails, sake, wine, and multifarious hot and cold options for those who prefer nonalcoholic swallowing.
