The delightful Cafe Barjot is in a tough spot, literally. The previous tenant, Chico Madrid, closed up after only a year in business. Barjot has made it a year, but despite serving food that is consistently applauded by customers and critics, there's just something about the location that makes business difficult.
"It has been one year since we started dinner service at Cafe Barjot. We’ve continuously received wonderful reviews from you and the media, but even with the fine words about what is coming out of our little kitchen we’ve struggled to build enough steady clientele to stay open in the evening," the cafe's website reads.
Barjot isn't going anywhere, though. As of Saturday, the restaurant is no longer serving regular dinner and happy hour service, choosing instead to concentrate on breakfast. It will serve food every day from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., so you can catch Chef Nick Coffey and crew in the mornings now. The menu will rotate like it did for dinner, but right now there are an array of toasts, breakfast sandwiches, yogurt and granola, and a very tasty cardamom latte.
Look for special dinners to pop up a few times a month; right now they're planning one in conjunction with Standard Brewing for December.
