Quick Review: Cappa Cafe

cupps31Our hard-workin’, sweet intern, Sara, discovered Cappa Cafe on Walnut Hill this morning. She files this report:

For those who fall under the category “definitely NOT morning people,” breakfast on the run is sort of standard. So Cappa Cafe, a tiny, all-brick standalone off Walnut Hill and Central in the middle of a shopping center is a godsend. Not fast-food chainy type fare, it’s got a good selection of coffees, lattes, and cappuccinos at friendlier prices than Starbucks (my medium skim cafe au lait was only two bucks, and they have one called the Hammerhead that I might have to try) andpastries, breakfast sandwiches and burritos, plus paninis and salads for lunch. I kept passing by thinking I was seeing the grand opening, because they’ve got flags and a huge banner announcing their existence, but apparently they’ve been open for two months now. Food was ready pretty fast, which means it might have been sitting under a heat lamp for a while, but it tastes fresher than most and the staff is super perky, which means their coffee works.

  1. interesting but very limited food menu…I guess it is much more coffee house than diner?

  2. I went through the drive thru this morning for my 1st visit there. Thought the breakfast menu looked good, so I ordered a burrito with sausage, egg and cheese for $2.49. When I opened it up at work, I couldn’t believe how tiny the burrito was. It looked like something you would buy frozen at 7-11 and heat up in a microwave and it tasted like a frozen burrito also. Very dissappointing. Not homemade at all. If they want to serve a small burrito like that, they should charge $1.00 for it. They should go see the what the wonderful breakfast burritos at Jason’s Deli on Greenville Ave. look like! Those are a treat and well worth the money.
