Thick slices of the most awesome bread you've ever had. Get up early or you'll have to wait awhile.
A crowded lunch spot for Troy office workers, this friendly cafe offers good food, reasonable prices, and large portions of both Middle Eastern and American foods. Especially good are the quiche-like artichoke pie, the lemon chicken, and the desserts, which include a fine carrot cake and rice pudding almost as good as the one made by our reviewer's mom. The barbecue ribs tend to be dry, but the vegetarian mousaka and shish kabob are both good and well-seasoned. ***
Formerly the Berkley Breakfast Cafe, it's still very much a spot for a good breakfast. The fragrance of cinnamon fills the air as patrons patiently await Sunday brunch. Long past noon, customers are asking for coffee refills as they mop up the last of their “International Scrambles” or “Breakfast of Champions.” Diners at Berkley’s Breakfast Café have clearly decided to reward themselves for a week of toil with a no-holds-barred breakfast the old-fashioned way. That would include four-egg omelets made with Italian sausage, sausage gravy, or chili and cheddar cheese. It would include French toast stuffed with strawberries and mango-infused cream cheese. Befitting the portion sizes, prices are fairly hefty for breakfast, though not out of line with other, more refined establishments. The long menu runs the gamut from such traditional dishes as Eggs Florentine and Benedict, through five kinds of French toast to omelets and scrambles made with everything from crab, asparagus, portobellos or roasted tomato sauce to chorizo or “gyro meat.”
For Sunday brunch, be prepared to wait at the bar for as long as a mimosa or two. But once you get your seat, you can choose from a half-dozen scrambles, omelets and frittatas, from the humble $8 vegetable scramble (mushrooms, leeks, tomatoes, spinach and garlic-herb chèvre; can be made with egg whites) to the $10 lobster Cobb omelet (smoked bacon, avocado, tomato, onion and blue cheese).

A gourmet breakfast menu featuring Mexican, seafood, cheese and vegetarian selections, and a lunch menu highlighting burgers, soups, salads and chicken sandwiches served in a sunny, casual setting.
You won't find 'omelets' on the menu, as the kitchen has chosen to serve scrambled eggs instead. The "exotic mushroom scramble" is rich with truffle oil and a bit of Boursin cheese, topped with shredded basil, which also goes well with the sweet potato side dish. Another scramble choice incorporates ammoglio, a mortar-and-pestle pounding of garlic, basil, peppercorns and tomatoes. Bread is from Avalon, which means excellent sourdough toast.
In the former space of Cafe Luwak, which closed at the end of 2010, Café Ollie is under new ownership, with a menu that's different though similar, with more vegetarian and vegan options.

Formerly known as Giorgio, at Eddie’s you can get a grilled cheese sandwich or steak Diane. You can also order from the separate pasta menu. It looks like a retro lunch counter, but choose from the “Counterside Gourmet” section of the menu, and you might well be in a little Italian trattoria.

Tomorrow night, the sweet indie pop melodies of this Scottish five-piece will be floating through the Loving Touch. . With ease, front woman Tracyanne Campbell’s smooth, candied vocals and wry Scottish story telling illustrate the challenges of life. Themes often circle around heartbreak, a common thread running through their recent album Desire Lines, released June 4. The album title nods to life’s uncommon paths that are marked by wear, not by signs; the paths our feet choose naturally. Forging its own desire lines, Camera Obscura’s unconventional style is well off the beaten path.
