Cable/web is down at home, so I’m doing this on the road. Happened upon the magical “we have wifi” sign at a small “artisanal market”/cafe type joint called “Coven” here in Salem, MA – where, already, it looks like a lot of y’all tourists are ALREADY descending, so have fun 😉
Anyway, check out what they got in this place:
Yeah, that’s a “buffet”-type setup of BREAKFAST CEREALS (real ones.) The idea is you buy a bowl and then fill it up however. I’ve heard of places doing this, never seen one in the wild – AWESOME. Rest of the stuff ain’t bad either – “nostaglia-kitsch” kinda atmosphere goin’ on, lots of local /natural foodstuffs, board games and such on the tables, and what seems to be a good list of beer and wine. So glad I wandered in here. Place is on Essex St. in Salem, in case anyone currently-local is looking at this and it strikes yer fancy.
EDIT: just now actually looked at the menu. Sample of nicknamed items from the sandwich menu: “The Fraggle Rock,” “The He-Man,” “The Super Mario Brothers” (meatball panini), “The Truffle Shuffle.” What a find. I like these guys.
