Someday, www.bigbearcafe-dc.com will take one to a neat, yet simple, little website with stories, history of the great work Stu and Lana et al put into the cafe, and, most important, a menu with descriptions that make your mouth water and stomach growl. Many still do not know what the BBC serves, in terms of food (important, since this is our ONLY sit-down restaurant). Until then, we must rely on word-of-mouth and reviews such that of the Wash Post:
Pastries are delivered daily, and salads and hot and cold sandwiches are made to order with fresh ingredients, many from the Sunday farmers market that in season sets up shop right outside. Josie’s Salad ($6) is a generous portion of field greens, chopped chicken breast, feta and cucumber that manages to be healthful and satisfying. So does the buttery smoked salmon sandwich with cucumber and cream cheese on a fresh baguette ($7). Even better were the grilled panini. The most popular are the turkey, apple and gooey brie ($6) and the old-fashioned grilled cheese ($4.50), which tastes just like Mom’s — maybe better.
Someone in our ‘hood surely could help ’em out.
