Today Comfort Cafe might be serving a potato salad recipe contributed by a regular customer. Tomorrow it could be baking someone's grandma's lasagna. Or maybe it will be the broccoli-and-cheese dish that restaurant visionary Jan Bezuidenhout serves her own children as a soothing salve. Bezuidenhout has been collecting recipes for twenty years from families she worked with at Namaste Hospice. Now, at the not-for-profit Comfort Cafe in Highland, she's sharing them with customers at pay-what-you-can prices. Inspired by SAME Cafe, the eatery opened for lunch in June 2010 and expanded to breakfast shortly thereafter, with a menu that changes daily. Bezuidenhout runs the restaurant with Sandy Corlett and Barb McGhee; the three women, who playfully refer to themselves as "three old broads," operate with the belief that everyone is entitled to healthy, gourmet meals -- no matter what they can pay for them.
