Morning in America

posted by on January 22 at 11:03 AM

Is there a better place to walk to on a very cold, very clear morning in America than the Volunteer Park Cafe? For spinach quiche and coffee cake and tea and sitting in the sun next to the window? And reading the paper? And having the Juno soundtrack and “Good Day Sunshine” by the Beatles blasting through your mind? There is not.

I think he means "Good DAY Sunshine".

"Good Morning Sunshine" sounds like he's confusing it with "Good Morning Starshine" from "Hair".

I've never been, but most of the reviewers on your site are far less enamored of the place than you are.

Wow, this place has been on my short list for awhile, but not after reading those reviews! Yikes.

You're right, obviously. You'd think with the song BLASTING through my head, I could at least hear the words. "Day." I changed it.

Also -- I gotta say, those are some cranky people writing restaurant reviews. I'm a pretty critical person, but the Volunteer Park Cafe is wonderful. You give someone the anonymity of the internet and they really turn on the hate. Tomcat, Kid -- go in the morning.

Ugh. It's one of those places.

um, no

i've been to the volunteer park cafe many times and think the reviews are actually quite pleasant and generous compared to the level of crapulence that fills that horrible place on a daily basis. good luck to you with that.

it is a nice day for a walk though.
