I frequent this shop to buy coffee for my mom and her coworkers, who prefer their drip coffees over the brews at Hyperion and Starbucks.  Doubling as an autospa, the cafe area is usually sparsely populated, making it a perfect place to work (note: you will need to ask for a wiFi login).  I go here more for the atmosphere than the food, which is just “ok.”  The menu offers a number of classic sandwiches and this time I ordered the hearty chicken salad on a warm croissant with carrots and ranch dip.  Overall, the meal eliminated my hunger pangs, I did not leave feeling too guilty and I enjoyed the quiet environment where I was able to work with a caffeine buzz and without any distractions.

I had visited Eileen’s a few years ago when it had first opened and had been underwhelmed by the desserts I tried.  My experience this time was pleasant though, and after seeing the sandwiches on display, I was sad that my stomach could hold no further contents after lunch at Foode.  A smiling young woman at the counter asked me what my friend and I would like and was patient through our hesitation and mind changes.  When asked for a recommendation, she pointed to the cream cheese danish, which was warmed up to where the flaky perfection melted in my mouth.

Despite the pastry heaven that I was in, arctic chills brought on by several ceiling fans made the interior an uncomfortable place to stay for long periods of time.   Also, there were no outlets available in the main seating area, so I would not recommend coming here to work on a computer.

I definitely would have tried the Katmandu Curry Chicken Salad (Peanut Butter, Creole Mayo, Lettuce and Pickles) if I was not stuffed from my delicious Foode black bean burger

Arriving just as the lunch rush had gotten their food, we were able to get our drinks and pastries in no time

Great place for simple, cheap eats.  Tasty tuna sandwiches and good tomato bisque soup.  Soups available in the winter, milkshakes in the summer, pie all year.  Cool counter seats and yes, they spin!  Seating does not afford a comfortable situation for parties of 4+ and it is often difficult to find a place to sit during peak hours.  When we were there we sat by a man who was campaigning for senate and was meeting with a woman representing the Tea Party.
