65 Main St. SE.
The emphasis is on comfort food at the cozy Wilde Roast Cafe, home to burgers (splurge on the short rib-chuck half-pounder), flatbreads, salads, sandwiches and more, plus butter-laden desserts (oh, those brownies) and a long list of local beers.
A coffeehouse/wine bar/cafe/ice cream shop hybrid. The place buzzes with a flurry of salon-style events. A big lure is the warm atmosphere and the marvelous riverfront patio. A counter-service menu, with breakfasts including French toast that is deliriously decadent. Sweets are where the kitchen really sparkles. (Rick Nelson, 10/21/2004)
