New Bonbonerie Cafe
What used to be the Cafe on Madison Road has been reborn as a restaurant outpost of Cincinnati's great Bonbonerie Bakery. The previous incarnation was all about the coffee and a place to hang out with your laptop--the food was adequate but almost an afterthought.
Now it's tea-licious (great for a tea lover such as yours truly) and pretty darn serious about the food. They're not trying to do a lot of different things, but it seems that they're starting off by doing a few things rather well.
Bonbonerie Cafe has a few breakfast items until 11 am (until 2 pm on Sunday) -- quiche, crepes and a breakfast burrito, mostly.
Lunch choices are only somewhat more extensive, but the high quality of all the offerings I saw makes it hard enough to decide what to eat.
Everything looked lovely. In the photograph is my friend's asparagus quiche with a side salad. A couple of tea cookies come with all the lunches.
I'm writing an article about the cafe for the Enquirer's "Under $25" Weekend Section column, so be on the lookout for the details in a week or so.
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.
