Baba Yega

Dawn M Simmons
This cozy cafe, named after a Slavic witch, has been a favorite ever since Montrose was the capital of Bohemian culture. The converted bungalow, with patio seating and a lush herb garden, serves artist types, workers and families. Like its clientele, the food is a mixed bag of deli, home cooking and vegetarian cuisine. Winners include the Caesar, topped with grilled chicken and charred red peppers, and the grilled vegetables over herbed brown rice. The best bet, however, is the huge char-grilled burger, served with a side of Baba Yega's famous dill potato salad.
