Wake up to breakfast and weekend-brunch house specialties, including a homemade granola served with fruit and yogurt, milk, or soymilk ($6.50), or a fluffy rack of silver-dollar buttermilk pancakes ($4.50). The pesto scramble ($9) fries up a garden full of growables (zucchini, tomato, roasted red pepper, and onion) with parmesan for a decadently delicious vegetarian dish. Moderately priced, traditional tastes dominate the afternoon and evening menu like a black bear in a hot-dog-eating contest. Snag the Burger Di Carlo ($7, or $8 for a black-bean burger), the B.L.A.T (a B.L.T. plus avocado, $8.50), or the spinach salad ($9), among other options. Pair eats with liquid accompaniment in the form of beer, wine, cocktails, or a variety of non-alcoholic sips.
Guapo Comics and Coffee's café slings made-to-order munchies, many of which are organic, for both breakfasters and lunchanados alongside an impressive and constantly updated collection of local zines and indie comics, making for an environment of taste-bud and brain-bud stimulation. The breakfast menu offers essential endo-engine fuel for the day ahead, including an egg sandwich on a bagel ($4), an egg sandwich on an English muffin ($4), and oatmeal ($2.50), best washed down with a banana, strawberry, or blueberry smoothie ($4). Guapo's lunch feeds stomach-books with paninis ($4) and pita pizza ($4) topped with such fresh yums as feta, turkey, ham, and hummus. Additionally, Guapo Comics and Coffee summons the power of locally roasted organic beandom, serving Allann Bros. Coffee Roasters, an Albany-based coffee company since 1972. While customers sip the café's heady brew juice, they'll have a chance to catch up on email or web comics with complimentary WiFi.
Channeling the whimsical spirit of Japanese street vendors, Mojo serves up portable griddle fare and desserts in the form of cone-shaped crepes and frozen desserts. This casual, playful preparation fashions fresh crepes from daily-made batter, twists them up into a delectable wizard's cap filled with tasty toppings, and garnishes the concoction with whipped cream and a stylish Pocky stylus. Ice cream crepes ($5.25) are plumped full of locally supplied ice cream, fruits, and sauces for specialty creations such as the classic mojo (strawberries, bananas, Nutella) and the purple rain, which features blueberries, strawberries, and the sauce formerly known as blackberry. Light crepes skip the ice cream, but maintain rich flavors through uncanny yet delicious partnerships such as the miruku (neatnik condensed milk and slovenly chocolate sauce, $3.25).
