If you know anything about Jeff Eats…you know that I am basically a “truck-driver” at heart. I love diners. I love big greasy hamburgers covered in grilled onions…I love french-fries, onion rings, pizza, philly cheese-steak sandwiches…My game is good food-big portions-reasonable prices… not fancy over-priced joints that are full of themselves.
The other day (November 19, 2008) I told you about a joint named Ice Box Cafe…I called it a “Yuppie” joint. Just so you know, I also consider Panera Bread a “Yuppie” joint. I just don’t get these kinds of joints…The way I see it, they serve mediocre stuff at best and try to pass-off the “food-ambiance” as being something special. Don’t get me wrong, many people buy into this concept, but like I said before, I just don’t get it…Starbucks is also a “Yuppie” joint…that said, in this wickedly bad economy, many are finding that McDonald’s $1 coffee is as good, if not better than the stuff served at Starbucks.
Anyway…every so often I come across what is basically a Yuppie-joint that is the exception to the rule…say hello to Out Of The Blue Cafe located in Miami. This joint, which does breakfast-lunch-dinner is absolutely terrific. Great omelettes, breakfast sandwiches, waffles, sandwiches, soups, salads and desserts…and guess what?…all at very reasonable prices. For sure, it has that “Yuppie” coffee-house ambiance with the requisite wi-fi, but the great food/reasonable prices made me forget about the “ambiance.” Take a look at the joint’s website at www.outofthebluecafe.net for menu/prices/and photos which will give you some idea as to what restaurant is all about.
Out Of The Blue Cafe has “Yuppie” joint type hours… Monday-Thursday 8am-10pm, Friday-Saturday 8am-12am, Saturday 9am-midnight, Sunday 10am-5pm.
