Eastside Eats: Via Vita Cafe and Wine Bar
Not a celebrity chef, not a graduate of the CIA, but Janice Lawrence, a real person who loves good food, is the owner/operator of Via Vita Cafe and Wine Bar. I had to go check her place out.
The big windows at Via Vita keep things bright, so even a NW rainy day won't get you down. I started with a cafe au lait, then went over the menu...hmmm...what shall I have? I had just come from the gym, so I felt I must have burned enough calories to enjoy the DUCK FAT POTATOES, so I ordered the Basque Style Omelette - $12.
The basque style omelette comes with chorizo, piquillo pepper, parsley, and goat cheese inside and a side of DUCK FAT POTATOES!!!
Well, he offered, but I thought, I'll have to come back for my own brioche another time.
I had a great experience at Via Vita. On my way out, I noticed so many YUMMY baked goods, I really have to go back soon!!!
