Café 217’s chefs cook every crêpe, burger, or steak to order, delivering an all-hours menu of fresh American fusion cuisine. Among several French-inspired specialties on the breakfast menu, sweet crêpes ooze with blueberry or raspberry compote ($7.95) and the Monte Cristo seats grilled ham, turkey, and swiss upon two chaise lounges of french toast ($8.95). Cooks griddle and poach eggs into various classic scrambles and benedicts, partnering dishes with home fries. Several of the lunch menu’s burgers and sandwiches borrow from Italian culinary traditions, exemplified by the grilled portobello mushroom sandwich with roasted red peppers, caramelized onions, mozzarella, and a balsamic reduction ($8.95). Café 217 fills its dinner menu with more upscale, steak-house-style fare including chipotle chicken pasta with a smoky tomato-cream sauce ($13.95) and grilled new york strip steak with au jus and compound garlic butter ($15.95). Inside the restaurant, metal trellises with floral designs stud the walls and bright-yellow tablecloths swathe tables. Patrons can dab their faces with bright-purple napkins, which ably conceal blots of wine or Rorschach tests of grape jelly.
