Food scene
While you're here, we highly recommend checking out our neighborhood coffee shop! Staffed by neighborhood high school interns, it operates on a pay-it-forward model: your drink has already been paid for by someone else. You get to pay for for someone else's drink! Current hours: Tuesday: 7am-10am Friday: 9am-1pm Saturday: 9am-1pm Sunday: 1pm-5pm Hours sometimes change seasonally, so you might want to check Facebook to confirm: facebook.com/TheLocalCupSB

Great food! Select your preferred heat level (on a scale of 1-10) for each dish. But be warned! As it says on the menu, "Thai hot is NOT the same as the usual American hot." http://cambodianthai.com/

Delectable tapas, a wide selection of wines, and a stylish atmosphere make Tapastrie a really nice place. We had our wedding rehearsal dinner in their wine cellar, and it was fabulous! In their own words: "Two families with deep roots in South Bend have refurbished a space in one of the city’s crown jewels to bring home and share their passion for food from the Mediterranean and wines from around the world. Following the concept of shared small plate dining popular in many Mediterranean regions, Tapastrie guests have the opportunity to sample and share a variety of dishes, expanding their choice options and cultivating their palates. This turns the traditional restaurant experience into an exotic culinary adventure." https://tapastrie.com/
