Birds Boutique Café
Birds Boutique Café Review
There's something so charming about this café that most diners are willing to overlook the discomfort of sitting on plastic milk crates or sharing a roughly hewn trestle table with other patrons. Bird-song records play, bird images abound, and the German owners roost over patrons like tall cranes. However inexplicable, it's so delightful that people tend to stay far longer than they intend. Teas are served sprouting fresh herbs and twigs, and for the most part salads and quiches incorporate organic produce. The chicken pie shaped like an egg is legendary, and the butternut-squash-and-feta quiche is delicious, as is the wide selection of salads. Chocolate scones, like everything at Birds, are made daily and written up on the chalkboard menu or scrawled on poster paper. A large selection of sugar-free and wheat-free items impresses diabetics.
