I think that Urban standard might be my new favorite place. It's a casual place with a great vibe. The lunch menu is small but it has all the right stuff. A friend told me the vegetable panino is a must but it is only available on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 2nd Avenue North also seems to be the one area downtown that is headed in the right direction with Rouge Tavern, What's on Second, and a hand full of great lofts all on the same block.

  1. love urban standard! their grilled cheese with tomato bisque is the best!!! oh, and all of their cupcakes are awesome. i'm a little partial to the strawberry. yum!

  2. Their cupcakes are a bit too sweet for my tastes- it's sugar overload. Coffee is ok but no match for Red Cat Cafe at the Pepper Place who's coffee and homemade sandwiches rule.
