Our Staurday morning special is Banana Walnut French Toast Casserole - and it is yummy!

A little pre-St Patrick's Day special - The Rubenesque - pastrami, sauerkraut, swiss cheese and russian dressing on toasted marbled rye. We also have The Torpedo - spicy Italian sausage, homemade peperonata sauce and aged provolone cheese stuffed into a ciabatta sub roll.

Today's soup specials are Gyspy Soup and Mulligatawny Soup.

There is a distinct nip in the air today. After coffee and breakfast at the cafe you might want to check out the Baltimore Heritage Quilters' Guild Biennial Show being held this year at Goucher College. I was an active member of the Guild and chaired the show committee for a number of years. There will be gorgeous quilts as well as fabulous shopping opportunities (you could get your Christmas shopping well under way!).

In the days before we opened the cafe I was an active quilter and designed the guild's 2005 raffle quilt Starry Nights. That is where Ann and I met. If you've been around the cafe on Saturday morning you've probably met Ann (she is usually knitting behind a giant latte). Her's were the third pair of hands that built the cafe. Virtually every weekend for months she showed up ready to clean, paint, haul or whatever was needed. The 2004 raffle quilt, a modern interpretation of the traditional Baltimore Album Quilt, brought us together. So today's salute goes out to BHQG for bringing me a dear friend, my own personal Swiss miss.
