The chef at Barking Mad Cafe puts a fresh twist on upscale American fare. Instead of creating a menu of super-fancy dishes with obscure ingredients, the chef sources local fruits, vegetables, and meats to craft creative entrees. The dishes are still familiar enough to fall into the comfort food category, however, so all types of eaters will enjoy the cuisine here.
Stop in for brunch to get a taste of what the kitchen team can do. Start with a signature brunch libation like the Spiked Barkuccino, a mix of house-made frozen espresso with milk and a shot of your favorite complementary booze, such as whiskey or Bailey’s. Then dig into a house special, such as the avocado toast. It features golden-brown multigrain baguette with guacamole, roasted peppers, feta, micro cilantro, and a pair of poached eggs on top.
