More than coffee
Grilled Cheese, Old Soul at Weatherstone
Around here, coffee shops do coffee and that's that. Sure, there are some rad pastries shipped in, but no substantive eats. That is, unless we're talking about Old Soul Co. They've got real food. Take the grilled cheese ($7.50) at the Weatherstone location with spinach, tomato and a blend of Swiss, white cheddar and brie, all on a spongy, crisped focaccia. It's sweet and savory, the cheeses filling out an entire spectrum of flavors on their own. For another $2, you can get some roasted vegetables heaped in there to boot (do it, and get some tots as well to complete the upgrade of your childhood food staples). 812 21st Street, www.oldsoulco.com.
