Grizzly Eats: North End Caffe

Yep, that’s “Caffe” with two Fs. Our new friend Matt works there and he invited us in last week for the royal treatment. It was amazing. The food is sooooo good. Matt calls it “gourmet short-order,” which I think pretty much sums it up. It’s a casual place, but the food is a bit more upscale than you’d expect (mushroom crostini, filet mignon, fettucini carbonara). Take a look at these good eats…

Ok, first up: the appetizers. On the left you’ve got fresh, super-local mushrooms on toasted bread. On the right, kalua pork monte cristo eggrolls. OMG. incredible. They came with a trio of dipping sauces, too. I want more!!!

Next, the pastas. We all nommed on the mac n’ cheese (I ordered a salad to justify the insane carb consumption). Stephen and Katie shared one of the pasta specials, which looked and smelled delicious.

Curt had the Guy Fieri-approved Fuego burger. Pepper jack, bacon, avocado, and chipotle salsa! And then, the crowning glory… Matt whipped up some beignets for us. They were hot and crispy and sweet and spectacular.

If you’re down in the South Bay, stop by North End Caffe for some amazing food! And say hi to Matt!
