Ashley’s Cafe

2 12 2012

So you’re in the Richmond. And you want breakfast. And you don’t want to wait in line for an hour on Clement. Enter: Ashley’s.

I love this place. It’s a small cafe, order at the counter, (wo)manned by two nice ladies. They have wireless. And coffee. And fresh-squeezed orange juice from one of those fancy machines. And home-made, organic pastries and breakfast snacks. And onigiri. It’s like Japanese/breakfast fusion that was made just for me. Love.

The menu is small but more than adequate. The serve a variety of breakfast items, a bunch of lunch sandwiches, a handful of bagel sandwiches, a couple salads, and two pot pies (curious, have yet to try these), along with coffee, cooler bevs, and even wine and beer. The counter space hosts a neatly arranged variety of fresh baked goods like lemon poppy-seed bread, organic chocolate chip cookies, and scones. It’s both adorable and yummy.

And for some reason it’s never packed in here. There’s always a few people at the tables with their laptops, but I’ve never had to wait any amount of time to order, and only a short amount of time for them to whip up my order. I think, with the encouragement from a note on their business cards, many people order ahead and come pick up their breakfast. Genius.

Today I shared an egg and cheese croissant (toasted in the oven, yum) and a avocado, tomato, cream cheese bagel. I also splurged for a tuna onigiri, which was delicious (as expected). Thank you, Ashley’s, I will be back.
