Have you ever gotten distracted by a book or a project, assumed you had been at it for 30 minutes or so, looked up at a clock and found two or three hours had passed? Something like that happened to me - only I lost an entire week. The cafe is open and we have soup and sandwich specials daily, but a serious illness in the family has thrown us for a bit of a loop. My partner in crime for 20+ years and the other half of Carmichael's LLC (aka Carma's Cafe), Michael has been in the critical care unit fighting an uphill battle with pneumonia. The situation is looking more optimistic than it did a few days ago, but it's fair to say things have been shaken up around here. Your support and understanding, as well as thoughts and prayers for Michael and his family, are so very appreciated.

St Patty's Day

The Rebecca - house-corned beef brisket, spicy Russian slaw and Swiss cheese grilled on rye.

"King Soup" (Brotchan Foltchep) Dating back to the Druids, possibly the oldest documented Irish recipe, Brotchan Foltchep is traditionally served during Lent. Don't let the oatmeal put you off, it adds a touch of nuttiness and slightly thickens this delicate soup.
