Bottom line: A casual way to spend the morning with a good cup of coffee - alone or with friends.
- Sit in the front room for a casual coffee or go to the back room for more of a restaurant experience
Food: We all enjoyed our meals, particularly the egg scrambles (no omelets here). They come with a choice of fresh ingredients and bread to make a sandwich or eat separately. The French toast was a tiny portion, our only real complaint.
Atmosphere: The definition of neighborhoody, Cafe Pick Me Up has regulars who swing by for coffee and to work on their laptops all the time. Comfortable for the regulars as well as those who come less frequently, this restaurant is very low-key with good food and service as well. Some of the seats in the back room are not so comfortable (little stools to sit on), and the restaurant is a little beat up looking, but the food and atmosphere make up for that.
