The RT Cafe hung its "opening soon" sign over the old Drew's Deli sign on Lincoln Street earlier this fall, and now that day has come. The cafe opened this morning, and it looks like customers can expect Slavic-style cooking and Daz Bog coffee.
The breakfast menu features a variety of espresso beverages, a small list of egg dishes, and pancakes, waffles and crepes.
Eastern European dishes highlight the lunch menu, including borscht (beef and vegetarian), latkes, stroganoff and pierogies. Sandwiches are of the croissant variety, in cold, hot and sweet choices. There's also a pastry case with cake by the slice, macarons, eclairs and tartlets.
The RT Cafe will serve breakfast and lunch daily from 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
