Cafe La Maude

816 N. 4th St.

    Cafe La Maude
    This lovely neighborhood spot exudes a chic French cafe, but offers a Lebanese-inflection to a menu of brunch favorites. The result? Eggs Benedict with the kick of spice from sujuk sausages and more creative spins like an open-faced pizza croissant layered with goat cheese, ham and caramelized onion
