Restaurant Review :: Anodyne Coffeehouse
First, it's completely adorable. There are a few sunny seats outside, but most of the tables inside are made for two. If you are a group of three (like we were), you have to snag some of the amazingly comfortable couches and chairs and cozy up next to a coffee table. I love eating out but feeling like you're eating in. Anodyne also has a long table in the middle of the coffee house for people who want to plug in their computers and surf the interwebs. Genius! And the menu was written in chalk, natch, featuring some tasty-sounding options.
Since I'd already had a donut at the Farmers' Market (oops) and a piece of zucchini bread at my parents' house (double oops), I opted for the oh-so-healthy sounding Anodyne Oatmeal. I vaguely recalled reading the differences between that and the "ordinary oatmeal", but there were no descriptions on the chalkboard menu to double check. Instead of asking, I just went for it. And a pot of tea, please.
Good atmosphere, good food, and wonderful friends all made for a great Sunday morning brunch! I'm glad Anodyne is now on my radar...it's the perfect little place to stop in when you need a fabulous bite to eat.
