Literati Cafe

Literati Cafe and Literati Bar & Grill are not one in the same. I believe they are owned by the same person, but I could be wrong... did my credibility just diminish? Hm. What I do know is that if you're in a sandwich/salad with a delectable baked good for dessert mood, go to Literati Cafe! If you want a mean burger and... other things, go to Literati Bar & Grill. { Tag-Team Thursdays

Clearly, I'm a bit more partial to Literati Cafe because it's just one of those homey places where you can find both good food and a decent place to study or be distracted (hi free wi-fi). I also haven't been to Literati (the  restaurant) since Chef Kidder left. I will pay a  proper visit soon. 'Till then...
