Vegetarian-friendly cafe attached to the Empty Bottle.
Remodeling a few years back left Bite Cafe still casual and cozy, but a little more polished than before and equipped with a new bar, though it's still BYOB. The vegetarian-friendly menu is now less fake-meat-centric; the Philly Cheese Fake sandwich, for example, is smoked portobello mushrooms, green peppers, onions, and provolone. Frequent changes allow for seasonality; on one spring visit peas, wild mushrooms, and asparagus were all worked into several dishes. House-made ricotta with preserved Meyer lemon, red pepper flakes, and olive oil was fluffy and creamy, but the overcharred toast it was served with overwhelmed the mild flavor. Our favorite was a half Amish chicken with exceptionally crisp, flavorful skin, served with potatoes, chard, and a good two dozen cloves of garlic confit.
