The wait is usually long for weekend brunch at Devil's Food Bakery & Cookery, but at least there's plenty to look at. The place feels like the house of a friend who spends all of her free time finding knickknacks and eclectic art at local thrift shops (and who probably lives in Wash Park, just like the eatery). While the red walls may have a few chips and the chairs may wobble a bit, rather than feeling disheveled, Devil’s Food feels welcoming. You get the sense that life happens here, which is why you’re equally likely to find college kids, tots eating Cheerios from a baggie and friends out for lunch around the tables on the tiny back patio or in the cozy dining room -- not to mention folks dropping in for a bracing cup of coffee and a palmier or magic bar to go. Such a laid-back atmosphere is to be expected at bakeries, which is how Devil’s Food got its start in 1999. It’s also par for the course at breakfast, lunch and brunch spots, which is what Devil’s Food grew into after five years. Devil’s Food serves dinner, too -- but calls it supper, which reflects the down-home fare featured here, everything from chicken and waffles to pot pie to shrimp and grits.
