The Cave at Ventura Wine Company
Lots of delicious changes going on here. They've added a patio, champagne, and beers from the Island Brewing Company. They've also made some changes to their small plates menu- and added such delights as Braised Savory Duck with Asian Stir-Fry; Crimini Mushroom, Shallot and Gruyere Pizza; and Charred Atlantic Salmon Cake with Lemon-Basil Aioli.
Bagel Rock Coffee
It appears that their second location (Telephone and Petit) has sadly gone out of business. Alas, you can still get their delicious, chewy, and perfectly gigantic bagels at their location in Midtown on Main Street. This quirky little spot has a great variety of bagels....my favorite sweet one being the peanut butter and my favorite savory one is the cheese. Their sandwiches and coffee are superb as well. The owners are sweet, friendly, and accomodating and the atmosphere is super chill.
