Having a long lunch is always nice, but we don't always have the time, so we thought we'd give you our top three favorite places to have a quick lunch in downtown.
Mr. Smith's Coffee House
Mr. Smith's is a great place for lunch or breakfast. The food is delicious and the service is always quick. They have all different kinds of wraps, sandwiches, salads and soups, we especially love the chilled gazpacho when it comes around. With a wide assortment of coffee drinks itís also the perfect place to get your morning or midday jolt. Plus, you can always call ahead and order something to go if you're especially rushed.
Mona pizza is one of those places we think people tend to forget about when they head downtown at lunch time. Maybe it's just because it's on the west side of Columbus Ave. or maybe because it's a little hidden, but we think it's definitely worth remembering. It's a great place to stop into and grab a large slice of pizza for lunch.
Dockside Cafe just opened earlier this summer, but we're already in love with it. We know that it's not quite in "downtown" but it's so close by, and so good, that we're including it. With delicious lunch choices such as fish tacos, locally raised beef burgers and salads, all priced under $10, plus a bar with bottle and draft beer, wine, cocktails and even blender drinks, it's the perfect place to enjoy an outdoor lunch by the bay.
