A pair of high-heeled legs dangles above the door of this eclectic breakfast-and-lunch cafe near Confluence Park, named for the Mona Lisa mural of a long-gone gallery that once occupied the space. Inside, well-worn floors hold well-worn tables and booths, inhabited by a mix of neighbors, families and hipsters, who all come in for lazy weekend (and weekday) meals. The menu features hearty, standard cafe fare: eggs, bacon and corned beef hash for breakfast, and sandwiches, soups and salads for lunch. Don't expect to pair these meals with alcohol, though: This outpost of Mona's, the original in a chain that now stretches to three spots, doesn't have a liquor license. Still, bottomless cups of coffee might provide some consolation.
