Tuna Salad

I have been a loyal fan of the tuna sandwich.... try the tuna sandwich on a bagel instead of bread for a delicious change up.

Breakfast Bagel

Amazing breakfast sandwich! Their bagels are delicious and I love the pesto/cream cheese combination. Will be coming back for another one! They're lox and bagel is also one of my favorites. Great spot for coffee and food!

Honey Cardamom Latte

This drink is such a delightful new approach to a latte! Sweet with spice that is different than chai. I find myself craving it regularly! Thank you for being bold and creative with your flavors.

My favorite place for bagel and smoothie lunch. Chimpanzee with juice substituted for milk is a must try.

Bean and Rice Bowl

I come here all the time and love it. I've had most things on the menu and they are all delicious. It's the perfect quiet cafe at any time of day and everyone who works there is lovely. I enjoy their bagel sandwiches, smoothies, kale slaw, turkey sandwich, and peanut sauce black bean bowl the best. This is my favorite place, I could come here every day!!

I work right around the corner from this homey cafe. My coworkers and I became addicted to their everything bagels. They toast it to golden perfection and are not skimpy with the schmear. Everything I have ordered has always left me satisfied. Highly recommend, you will not be disappointed.

Great sandwich! to be honest - I'm usually a meat sandwich kinda guy but I wanted to try something new. The sauce really put the sandwich together and all this for $8 is a steal! super satisfied

A truly amazing vanilla latte. Iced or hot, it doesn't matter, delicious. Can't forget the great and particularly sassy (Isiah) people who run this cafe. I'll take my winnings in the form of a custom Clearing Cafe "Tyler" shirt. -Your favorite local customer

Bean and Rice Bowl

I love the garbanzo bowl at the clearing cafe almost as much as I love the cafe itself. This place is my neighborhood spot——there is always a good slice of the community hanging out, and it is a great place to meet up with friends or come to study alone. I feel like the menu was designed with me in mind. There is a wide variety of healthy yummy food for breakfast or lunch and everything has a nice serving size for a decent price. This is especially true of the garbanzo bowl which could feed me for two meals and is satisfying every time. Keep up the good work guys!

Breakfast Burrito

After a busy morning teaching fitness/ dance at Friendly House, my day only gets sweeter with a delicious breakfast burrito and yummy smoothie as I walk home. Bowls and breakfast bagels is just a few of many great food is provided... great selection.

Banana Bread

Gem of a neighborhood cafe. Love all the baked goods. Grab an outdoor seat and sip on a coffee. Baby friendly - there is a changing table in the bathroom and a small corner with toys.

Banana Bread

Stumbled upon this little cafe when walking through the neighborhood. What a hidden gem! Had the banana bread and got to work on my computer. Would recommend anyone looking for a neighborhood coffee shop with excellent pastries to come here!

This is my favorite sandwich! I work next door and have to get it at least once a week. I even tried to make it at home to save mullah and it just isn't the same as clearing cafes caprese. I also love the mocha, I'm getting one today, the Cesar salad and banana bread.
