Om Cafe --newest hangout for lunch and coffee on Ludlow
In my 'hood -- Gaslight Clifton--there are several places for coffee and pastry, each with a distinct ambiance. Sitwell's has the boho feel of a throwback to the 1960s, Bruegger's Bagels fronts Clifton Avenue and Burnet Woods, Brutopia is a bit more serious about their coffee drinks and has a hole-in-the-wall, away from it all feel. The most recent addition is Om Cafe, across the street and a few doors down from Sitwell's--or across from the fantastic Esquire Theater, if you're not a Cliftonite. Here you can browse books about New Age spirituality* and chow down not only on pastries but also on healthy salads and sandwiches. *Om Cafe is within the Aquarius Star store. Pictured here, a Lebanese wrap (something unique, thanks to the ethnic background of the family that owns the place) and a salmon salad.
My day job is college professor -- of mass communication and journalism, at the University of Cincinnati. I've probably got a few more years to go, and it's a good gig. Love to travel, cook, dine out, and work out.
