You probably already know this but if not – Cynthia (of XYZ Movement Arts, Red Checkered Picnics and “Cynthia’s Of Course”) has opened a new restaurant at 65 Nichols across from the Barking Bird. It’s called… “Cynthia’s“!
Breakfast and lunch are the offerings for now, with open hours from 7 am (8 am on Sundays) to 3 pm, Thursdays through Mondays (with brunch all day Sunday). And breakfast is a “grown-up breakfast, totally different from anything else around here” she adds, “not ‘grown-up’ as opposed to ‘children’ but more like an ‘evolved’ and ‘changed‘” style of cooking.
Some of the offerings include – mash browns – roasted red potatoes with garlic, mashed and served hot, breakfast salad – fresh greens with fruit and a light dressing or fresh fruit are your choices with the Avocado Boat breakfast (baked avocado with poached eggs – add crumbled bacon or smoked salmon to the mix for an extra taste sensation.
She also offers Swedish Pancakes from a family recipe, Gluten Free Pancakes, French Toast and Dutch Babies (crepe/pancake cooked in an individual skillets). Lunch offerings include her famous “only at the Fair” Ahi Burger as well as a Lamb Fusion Panini. Daily specials are offered and homemade soups and pies.
She only serves cage-free eggs and as much local and organically produced foods as possible. “I won’t serve people anything that I wouldn’t serve my family or friends“.
There is a walk-in full service dining room, and a separate “grab and go” area for when you’re in a hurry. And reservations are accepted for parties of 6 or more.
