Visited Acme Cafe frequently when as I previously worked in the area. Love their soups, sandwiches and the broccoli slaw is amazing! The pies are also to die for! Great breakfast and lunch spot.

We stopped by this place for an afternoon break. Excellent coffee and pastries. Kinda of old fashion feel of an old-time neighborhood diner. On the day we went, they had a pie happy-hour, buy a slice of pie (or cake) and the coffee is included....More
