Food Scene

This is a small sample of the eclectic food offerings in our neighborhood. Feel free to ask for more - these are some of our favorite places.
Petite has a tasty brunch with options ranging from homemade french pastries to scrumptious eggs benedict. In the evening, they have a variety of small plates great for group sharing with wine. The wait can be long on the weekend, so it is best to get their early for sit down breakfast or take their pastries and coffee on the go.
