Lambert's and Black Seed Cafe - anything worth eating?
I poked my head in both these places today after opting to visit the King (Falafel). Is there anything worth eating in either place? Some of the Lambert's baked goods looked really good, but some looked like they had been put though a dehydrator. The sandwich choices looked to be 95% Boar's Head, and my senses were so overpopulated by the sheer number of signs featuring "Boar's Head" products that I left without investigating options they might have cooked up on the premises.
The Black Seed Cafe had "Shrimp Burger" special, which intrigued me, but I wasn't sure I wanted to roll the dice on that one without getting some intel in advance.
I mostly use Lamberts for fruits and veggies.
Black Seed has the simple menu that you saw but I've found the overall quality to be very good. I've had the bagels and fresh squeezed juice for breakfast and lamb or chicken plates for lunch. Some of their soups are very good.
I've never had a shrimp burger there, but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Black Seed based on what I have had there...good quality
Thanks (and thanks on the gobbler rec, Beachowolfe). I will give them both a try. I saw a post on yelp in which someone claimed to have gotten dysentery at Black Seed from eating a chunk of lamb that was cold and raw. It gave me a bit of pause until I realized that situations like that are what spitting stuff out was invented for.
