Omnivore - Gravy Train: Brunch at 4th & Swift, Cafe Intermezzo Opens Downtown

Also: A new spot from Souper Jenny


Jennifer Levison, owner of Souper Jenny, just announced that she will bring a new concept called Café Jonah and the Magical Attic to Paces Ferry Place in February. The coffee house will serve as a "mini spiritual retreat," with an inspirational environment filled with candles, aromatherapy oils and the like. “It’s inspired by how I live and places I’ve visited, particularly old-fashioned European cafés," said Levison. "Guests will enjoy a slow pace to connect or spend time alone with a meal or cup of tea in the café." In addition to coffee house drinks, the cafe will offer breakfast, lunch and prepared "grab-and-go" options including dinner entrees.

4th and Swift has just announced that they will be opening for brunch beginning in March. Chef Jay Swift says brunch has been a popular request from diners. The menu will feature the creative twists you’d hope for from the Old Fourth Ward eatery, including Veal Schnitzel with a fried farm egg, spaetzle and caper brown butter and Lobster Crepes. Brunch will be served Sundays from 11 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.
