Our love for the South End’s Delux Cafe has endured over many years and the varied menu that changes every so often. It makes us hard to keep a valid menu on hand, but we can’t fault this delicious neighborhood dive. They have nothing but class. Doesn’t a corner Elvis head and Eloise wallpaper in the women’s room say something about the folks behind this operation?
We know, sometimes it’s hard to get excited about what seems like a corner bar in what isn’t your own ‘hood. Thing is, Delux is worth a trip across our fair city, rain or shine. With what we sometimes called “inspired food,” this hidden gem serves famous quesadillas year ‘round, plus a rotating sample of amazing salads (arugula, goat cheese, and pears are often involved), hearty soups (tomato with your grilled cheese, anyone?), stellar pasta selections (often a ravioli containing spinach or pumpkin), and tons of goodness on tap, not open Sundays. Get there.
