Editorial Review of Gaudi Coffee and Grill

Upon entering Gaudi Coffee and Grill, the first impression is of a coffee shop with some two-top tables for wi-fi and maybe some smaller sandwiches. While the small tables and art for sale on the wall do indeed fit into such a guess, such illusions are pushed aside when the friendly wait staff hands you the colossal menu.

Starting off at breakfast options, a slew of eggy treats can be had from a variety of omelets for $6.50 (including the "divorced" with two eggs sunny side up, one in red salsa and one in green) and traditional chilaquiles for $8.95. In a more American vein, chocolate chip pancakes can be had for $6.50, or french toast for $5.50 (add a dollar to have it dipped in corn flakes). Espresso and plenty of coffee are available for those in need of a pick-me-up.

More than a dozen different salads and sandwiches are available from $6.50-$8.50, and an array of "art burgers" are available from $7.50 (for the meat and bun simple "Van Gogh") to $9.50 (for the seasoned shrimp and melted manchego cheese of the "Miro"). A selection of wraps and entrees on top of it all is downright daunting, until you realize there's a full tapas menu beyond even those. Nearly 30 different plates are available, from usual suspects like patatas bravas ($4.95) and pincho de pollo ($5.95) to sweet surprises like the dates wrapped in bacon with peach balsamic dressing ($5.95).

Oddly enough, the dessert menu is a modest six items, each are available for $2-$3, or on a small plate of the three "specials of the day" for $6. While the deserts may not be their strongest suit, it's hardly a dealbreaker most people won't have any room left after exploring the near-inexhaustible variety of delights elsewhere on the menu.

Average cost: <$10
