Cheap Eats: Refuge Cafe

So last week, my mommy came to visit.  It was awesome.  She’s a lot of fun to hang with, and I’m not just saying that cause I’m her daughter (though it doesn’t hurt).  She’s sassy.

So to do something fun while she was here, I told her we should check out the Hippie Chic exhibit at the MFA.  It was cool, lots of fun fashion and history.  Before we headed to the museum, though, we grabbed a very satisfying breakfast at Refuge Cafe in Allston.  I’ve grabbed a breakfast sandwich here once before, but I’ve never actually checked out the menu.  It had a lot of awesome sandwiches and I got excited.  I got the Allstoned sunrise sandwich.  It was like a bacon egg and cheese but with avocado and Siracha mayo. Awesome.



Mom got a turkey club on a pretzel bun.  Super tasty, especially cause pretzel buns seem to be making a comeback of sorts, popping up on menus here and there. I’m excited about it, cause pretzels are awesome. So was this sandwich, which was a classic turkey club with Siracha mayo and a flavorful roasted turkey.



Both sandwiches with drinks only st us back $20.  Now, the spot is kinda hipster mecca, but the sandwiches are so good, it shouldn’t matter.  A perfect fast breakfast spot in the heart of Allston.
