Ball Square Caf prides itself on a casual hang-outable atmosphere, accented by a staff that's warm and friendly without asking a lot of intrusive questions about your apartment layout. And though the caf's servers are no longer shirtless and its bus staff no longer sleeping dogs, their hospitality will take care of all the details so that you're free to lounge and people watch as you like. Ball Square is best known for its bountiful breakfast menu of omelets, Belgian waffles, pancakes, breakfast plates, and beyond-all of which are available at any time of day. Gird yourself for the day's or night's adventures with delightful diurnal delicacies such as the Tunisian omelet ($8.95), stuffed with green olives, scallions, tomatoes, and feta, or the toothsome tower of caramelized-apple and cinnamon Belgian waffles ($8.50). And if you're drawing undue attention because you accidentally wore the same outfit as Lady Gaga that day, a macchiato ($3.25) will disguise you with a cream mustache so that you can finish your mango-banana pancakes ($7.95) in peace.
