The blow of all these departures was softened by a visit from the Maine punks Dugan (now living in Cincinnati and studying to be Portland’s furture planner) and Matt. We celebrated by going to Pure Food and Wine, where our friend Neal is the head chef. We got desserts, including the peach parfait and tiramisu. All vegan and raw… wow.
After a few months of neglecting this cafe O. and I had the same thought, “We haven’t gone to cafe regular in a long time!” so we did on a Saturday morning before work (for me). Great coffee and good pastries and a tiny inside that reminds you of Paris picked up and moved to Brooklyn. On 11th street in Park Slope between 5th and 4th.
