The new Slope Cafe, at Fourth & 10th, will open on Friday. According to one of the staff, this will be an early-hours place, serving customers from 5:30 a.m. until around 11:00 p.m. I will be rising at ungodly hours for at least several more seasons, so I'll be happy to have a new option on my route to work. As I mentioned earlier on the blog, there'll be Caribbean dishes on offer, along with some standard cafe staples. I'm looking forward to stopping by & checking it out.
Update (9/15): So I went today, & the only West Indian offering was Jamaican gravy to go with the buffalo wings! So far it's a disappointingly straight-up soup, sandwich, smoothies style cafe, with an everything organic pitch. They did say there'd be lunch & dinner meals coming in a few days. I don't know though. Dreaming, only dreaming, of oxtail, jerk chicken, rice and peas.
