We'll be mostly downtown. What are some good and not too pricey places to try?

  1. While Rosetta's and City Bakery Cafe are the only places that qualify as "dirt cheap," these are my favorites at the lower end of the price scale:

    Salsa on Patton Ave. for Caribbean-fusion
    Doc Chey's on Biltmore Ave. for Asian-fusion
    The Early Girl Eatery on Wall St. for breakfast
    The Laughing Seed on Wall St. for vegetarian/vegan
    Rosetta's Kitchen on Lexington for vegetarian "soul food"
    Tomato Cuchina Latina on Patton for Salvadoran
    City Bakery Cafe for sandwiches, salads, and baked goodies

    1. I recommend Noodle Shop around the corner from Salsa and Mamacitas for a great burrito.

      Laughing seed is killer for lunch whether or not you are veg - great food!

      1. loretta's on college. best sandwich in downtown, by far (especially npw that viva europe has been closed). its only open lunch monday- friday. get to 12 bones, please, in the river/arts district. only open for lunch monday -friday. over easy cafe on broadway for breakfast/lunch(get breakfast) only open wednesday-sunday. ali baba in grove arcade for mediterranean priced by the pound. little havana across from grove arcade for a cuban (mmmm).
