Midday 100: “the fig cafe”
Meant to devote a praiseful entry to this chic little Glen Ellen eatery, but never sat to scribe. The ambience, immediately upon entry, is comfortable. Upscale, but quite humble. The menu offers everything from eggs to steak, salads to a burger (one of the best burgers I’ve ever had, I might add) for brunch, my recent dining time. For dinner, which I’ve had several times, they have outstandingly flavorful calamari, that same burger, artisan pizzas, salads, chicken, mussels, along side other temptations. Another aspect of this little spot on Arnold Drive is that their wine list is comprised of strictly Rhone varietals. But even if you’re a stubborn Bordeaux bull, bring a bottle of your own. No corkage! The service, more than pleasant. Always a caring and charismatic cafe.
