Cititour Review:

Angelina Cafe is the perfect spot for a Sunday brunch.  The space is airy, the staff is courteous and eggs benedict is a wonderful start to any day.  Brunch is served until three in the afternoon with yummy choices like Cinnamon Pecan Brioche French Toast and Eggs Florentine.  There's also pancakes and granola served with fresh fruit.

But for eleven bucks treat yourselves to the Eggs Benedict.  It's served two different ways, with smoked salmon or traditional.  Each egg maticulously placed on a mini bagel with slices of glistening pink salmon and drizzled with a tasty hollandaise sauce on top.  Break into the soft boiled egg and there is happiness on the plate. The traditional version replaces  salmon with slices of thick Canadian bacon. It's the kind of meal that is a chore to make at home and perfect for a light brunch.

Angelina's menu also includes a nice selection of sandwiches, like the Cubano, and savory crepes and pasta dishes.  Entrees include French classics like Steak Au Poive ($19.95), a roasted half chicken ($15.95) and a grilled tuna steak ($17.95).

So, if you happen to be in Alphabetland you may want to give Angelina a try.
