Every neighborhood has one of those cursed locations that seem to turn over restaurants, and in the Flagler Arts Village, it's the little cafe in the Avenue Lofts. After a couple failed coffee shops, though, the new one looks promising.
Brew La-La has something the others never got quite right: food to go with your coffee. The new place is serving wraps ($6.95) that include Buffalo chicken, Hawaiian chicken, avocado with mozzarella, and roast beef and bacon. They've also got a panini press turning out Italian grilled cheese, reuben,
chicken pesto, turkey parm, and pesto mozzarella ($7.95). Both the wraps
and the paninis come with a side of dill potato salad, pasta salad, or
fruit. On Sundays, they're serving brunch from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
got coffee too, of course, and a sharp-looking sitting area with
couches and artwork hanging on the loft-like walls. Considering the
place is in walking distance from Clean Plate Charlie central, here's
hoping they reverse the curse.
