Come 2pm this Sunday...

I'll be enjoying one of these:

Our current beer float:
Rogue Chocolate Stout, Espresso (CCR's Yemen Sanani), and Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

Though I may have to do without the coffee and ice cream portion of the drink, and stick to the important stuff.

We did mention earlier in the week that it was going to get hot, and it did. It's been in the 90's yesterday and today and as for the cafe kitchen...well it has felt about 20 degrees warmer, which makes the cooks feel a little loopy and do strange things:

Moo's Garnish, Otherwise Known as the Origami Boat

Oh, and we've also created an Oatmeal Stout Shake. Yes, I typed beer milkshake (Steinbeck fans take note). Though the the heat is taking its toll, we're doing our best to keep our menu exciting as well as tasty:

Ali's Muffaletta:
White Bean Hummus, Olive Salad*, Pepperoncini, Provolone Cheese and Spinach, on Ciabatta.**

As for the weekend's breakfast special, well, that is a different blog post all together, and we are going to have to take some pictures that do this sucker justice. For now let's just get it out in the open and let y'all know that this newest breakfast special had nothing at all to do with us, and was completely ripped off by yours truly from some people you may have read about (with their belated approval of course; thanks, friends XO). Until then, try to stay cool, Portland.

*What's in this delicious "olive salad" you ask? Okay, so you didn't ask but Ali wants to tell you anyways. Her olive salad includes: Roasted peppers, artichoke hearts, toasted pine nuts, fried garlic, harissa, olives, olive oil and lemon juice.

**And yes, without the cheese this sandwich is fully vegan and it still totally kicks ass without it. Although we had some pretty nice sopressata lying around earlier in the week which we offered to those who were looking to get a little pork on their plate.
