Conscious Cafe

Perhaps the only Nation of Islam-run restaurant in town, Conscious Cafe is also - therefore - the only place in town to get some bean pie, that cross between sweet potato and buttermilk pie that uses navy beans (the only beans allowed under Elijah Muhammad's strict dietary guidelines) in place of sweet potatoes, which are forbidden to eat. Adhering to those guidelines, the cafe specializes in healthy pescatarian food like a grilled wild salmon burger and a savory eggplant hoagie. Customer service is tops at this little neighborhood joint, which also serves as a community center of sorts for this Third Ward neighborhood; you'll feel right at home in no time, even if you don't know Farrakhan from Marrakesh.
