BACK IN THE DAY CAFE- luncharoni!!!

This place often posts get togethers here. I've been wanting to check it out. Hope to see a few folks there also. There post says it starts at 11am-- but let's call this a rolling registration and feel free to come anytime from 11am to 1pm. 

'Red, White & Blush!  Eat, drink and be merry on Wednesday...

All glasses of Wine are 1/2 off.

All bottles of Wine are 1/2 off w/ purchase of 2 entrees.'



Flashbacks.  Some good.  Some not so much.  Back in the Day cafe is well named, sort of.  It's a cafe but with a bar.  It has a relaxed atmosphere with its retro decor and black and white tables.  When it's busy, it gets pretty loud.

The full menu is all-American food: soups, salads, burgers, sandwiches, waffles, pancakes, that took me some time to read.  There's enough of a spin put on some of the dishes that make it a little out of the ordinary, like a grilled pimento cheese sandwich or a battered pearl onion, pickle and jalapeno appetizer.  My first visit,  I ordered a vegetarian option, a sandwich that had cream cheese, cucumbers, sprouts, spinach, red onion and a couple of other items that made a tasty lighter option.  The ketchup served with the fries is a homemade and tasted like cocktail sauce with added Worcestershire.  It was good, but being a classic ketchup with fries person, I'm not sure I'd want it all the time.

While I waited for the food,  I was able to get a closer look at the Brady Bunch,  Rocky, Ferris Bueller, etc. posters on the walls, the vinyl album covers on the bar, and what looks like fan magazine size celebrity pictures, about the same time I figured out the tie-in to the menu items of Blue Bros. Burgers, Forrest Gump Shrimp and Grits, Caesar Romero salad.  Hence the 70s and 80s flashbacks, both good and bad.  The over the air MyTv shows, like Remington Steel and MASH, is a nice touch.

BIDC is open for breakfast, but not early enough to catch an 8-5 working crowd.  That's too bad, because the breakfast options, also look good.  And a Monte Cristo?  really?  I didn't think many places really served those anymore.  

The cafe has just opened so they're still working out the kinks, and the food is a little slow to arrive, but overall, I think this cafe could be a regular stop.

Thanks for your vote!
