This small, eclectic place in the Heights offers good vegetarian meals, nice gelato and great coffee. Order at the counter and find a cozy spot to call your own for a while. The mushroom barley soup is soul-warming, and the portobello mushroom sandwich and the vegetable quiche are both filling. Soups change daily. Breakfast -- Belgian waffles, granola and scrambled eggs -- is available all day long.
