Our 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.
