Creations in Wakefield: Coffee, ramyun, and...?

I'm liking this little place on Main Street. It looks like a coffee/sandwich shop; went in on a Saturday morning looking for coffee and saw a sign that they had ramyun available (spicy Korean or Japanese miso). I went for spicy Korean. The noodles themselves weren't homemade or anything, but the toppings were fresh (lettuce, mushrooms, sprout; chicken is available for a bit extra). Mostly I was just really happy to find a place that offers ramyun at 10:30 in the morning (it's available all day).

Found myself there again today and tried a caramel latte. They serve Rao's coffee. Call me what you will but the latte "art" brightened my morning (photo).

Has anyone tired their sandwiches? What should I get on my next visit?

  1. As someone who regularly eats ramyun filled with brown rice, over-ripe radish kimchee, and a scattering of scallions at 8 am most mornings, I appreciate this post! Perhaps I'll even venture out to Wakefield (from Arlington) one of these mornings!

    1. Went back recently on a weekday morning and picked up a couple of breakfast wraps. Scrambled egg in tortilla with fixings, but not quite the usual thing: wrapped more into a squarish parcel and lightly cooked in a panini press, which made for a neat package that was easy to eat on the go. I really liked the one with sausage and spicy mayo. The spinach and tomato could have used a pinch of salt. Still it was a nice breakfast, on the smaller side, at a good price ($4).

      (Technically it was my second breakfast, so I appreciated the smaller-sized portion).
