Ask 100 people who makes the best pizza and you are going to get 100 different answers. Pizza is one of those things that causes great debate. The topics include sauce, dough, quantity of cheese, quality of ingredients and sometimes even obscure things like barometric pressure and the position of the moon. It gets crazy - really, really crazy.

Honestly, I don't know if our pizza is the best. It probably is to some people and to some people probably not. But, then too, some people call a velvet picture of dogs playing poker art. I know our pizza is good, because I have had it and I was as objective as I could one ever called their own baby ugly. Be that as it may, I was really hard on our pizza team and what we are producing now is nothing short of art and not the velvet kind but the Van Gogh kind. No offense to those who like velvet paintings, just not the kind of pizza we are putting out there.

So, here is what I am going to say about our pizza...if you order it and you really don't like it, call me directly and I will credit you the amount of the pizza for anything else in our Cafe. But, be honest, please. Don't be one of those people that say it was bad just for the sake of getting a credit...I mean if you are that hard up, I will give you the credit anyhow. So, try our pizza...I think you will find, as many people have already, that it is damn good...maybe not the best, yet, but it is worth the price of admission.

Pizza special - 2 medium, 1 topping pizzas, $12 - Each additional ingredient, add $1.50.

Now that that is out of the way, the breakfast special for Friday, July 31, 2020 is buy one breakfast and get the second of equal or lesser value for half price. We have the best French toast in the city and there is no debating that. Of this I am certain.

Our lunch special is our bang bang shrimp taco platter - 2 bang bang shrimp tacos, fries and a beverage for $6.95. You will not regret ordering this if you like shrimp. If you have shell fish allergies, you may want to grab something else...just sayin'. 

We are approaching the completion of our 1st year in business. It is hard to believe but on August 15th, we'll have been in business for 1 year - Crazy, right? Stay tuned for an announcement about a special celebration.
