Cafe Alma - My First Prix Fixe Lunch

Located at 260 1st Avenue South, Cafe Alma is hidden in a red brick building and it's a treasure hunt to find it! You can either dine inside or outside at the patio tables. Since it was a little humid, we chose to eat inside.

First stop was the restrooms. The building itself is amazing and if you have never been, you must go and check it out just for the history! The restrooms were very clean and nicely decorated.

I decided to start off with the shrimp and crab bisque. The menu stated, "rich and creamy with a touch of sherry" and for $3.00 a cup, I couldn't pass it up!

The restaurant offers a Prix Fixe lunch special for $9.95 (which includes your Choice of Any Sandwich or Burger, plus Alma House Salad or Soup of the Day, a Side Dish and Soda or Iced Tea.) I opted to get the burger of the day which was grilled onions and bleu cheese.

This is the house salad that is served with your sandwich. The side of the day was couscous salad. As you can see, there are all sorts of yummy things in that couscous!
Cafe Alma has several different sandwich options available on their lunch menu ranging from a gyro, to a chicken club, to grilled eggplant and portabello. This is definitely one of the places I will visit again when I am downtown. The lunch menu is available from 11-3 Monday through Friday.
