Owner Cynthia Barrett enlists the help of her family in running her friendly, welcoming coffee shops, where full menus of organic, fair-trade Arabica coffee, homemade soups, and all-day breakfast join fresh-made meals. A sprawling collection of drinks floats innovative twists on coffee classics. Breakfast sandwiches and platters come filled with morning favorites, such as a selection of bacon, ham, sausage, or sliced sunshine in the egg-and-cheese bagel sandwich ($3.59), and the vegetarian breakfast scramble filled with a piping-hot medley of egg, peppers, onions and hash browns adorned with melted cheddar and a flaky side of just-woken toast ($3.99).
Every day, a creamy and a broth-based soup are ladled into awaiting bowls, and at least one is vegetarian and one aspires to run away from home to start a band. Soup or salad accompanies every sandwich ($6.99 for a smaller portion; $7.99 for a whole portion). The classic BLT and the turkey-cheddar melt satisfy plates that only host layered foods, and homemade croutons speckle the garden salad ($2.59 for a side portion; $3.99 for entree size), in which a canopy of greens bursts with red tomatoes and cheese. The Hamburg location occasionally hauls out its hosting shirt to welcome live entertainment in the dining room.
Comfort Zone Cafe
Ever since Cindy Barrett opened Comfort Zone Cafe in 1997, she and her family have worked tirelessly to meet her vision of what a coffee house should be. From the fair-trade Arabica coffee to the free WiFi, everything is geared to make patrons feel welcome.
In the mornings, cooks prepare sandwiches and toast bagels for breakfast served all day. They then begin grilling paninis and simmering made-from-scratch soups as morning ages into afternoon. Guests can sip café drinks such as the Almond Joy latte or the Emerald Champagne–a medley of pineapple, celery, and fruit juice served over ice.
