There?s the orange walls with green trim, and the smell of Jamaican food wafting from the open kitchen. There, the kitchen staff cooks curry goat and plates crispy, brown pieces of jerk chicken. Other dishes include oxtail, plantains, rice and beans, beef patties encased in flaky crust, and almond cake made with rum and topped with icing. Many of the dishes double as loveable characters in the eatery?s recipe book.

Like hip-hop albums produced by Burton Gilliam, notable restaurateur and Tavolo mastermind Chris Douglass's menu is famous for changing and adapting to incorporate the freshest of the fresh, so ask your server about exclusions or inclusions for the day or call ahead for a sneak peek. Staple starters include mussels with tomato, garlic, white wine, and grilled toast ($8) or the vegetable plate with house-cured olives, roasted garlic, and Tuscan beans ($8). You can also keep your palate guessing with a plate of antipasti, featuring items like marinated olives, Gorgonzola dolce, and white anchovies ($2–$5 per item), before moving on to the main paninis, pizzas, and pastas. Try the meatball panini with marinara, provolone, and parmesan ($8); the goat-cheese pizza with caramelized onions, roasted garlic, and olives ($13); or some Captain Ahab–approved shrimp scampi ($15). Meatier mains include pork, beef, veal, and ricotta lasagna ($16) and short-rib braciole with risotto, mushroom, and gremolata ($21), among others. But keep your vestigial dessert stomach empty for a finale of gelato ($3/scoop) or tiramisu affogato ($9).

Jenn and Donny have long accepted their elitist take on coffee. As college students and self-professed coffee snobs who both worked in the food industry, they bemoaned a lack of sophisticated brews and attentive service, finally deciding that innovation would be the best form of protest. They dreamt up their own café where the beans would be freshly micro-roasted, the cocoa would incorporate three types of chocolate, and every drink would be handmade by the same person who took your order. The resulting venue, Coffee Break Cafe, lined its menu with libations of all temperatures and caffeinated creeds.

The café's house blend hails from locales such as Sumatra, Colombia, Africa, and South America and is shipped from specialty roasters who prep the beans in small batches. Jenn and Donny's commitment to coffee quality is matched by their enthusiasm for the natural world—they stock organic and fair-trade options, as well as dairy products from a hormone-free farm. Though they stand by meticulous barista techniques, they are hardly sugar-shunning purists. They readily infuse hot and frozen drinks with dessert flavors, ranging from red velvet cupcake to cinnamon bun, crafting a far superior breakfast sweet than grapefruit pie. Bagels and pastries, delivered daily by neighborhood bakeries, balance out refreshing sips. The morning hotspot's communal spirit is reflected in hanging pictures by local artists, live music, and complimentary story readings for kids.
