fleur-de-lis on Cafe Felix

Cafe Felix

January's I Spy unveiled

by Sally Bjork

From the February, 2011 issue

"I wondered if the map of the world had changed while I was away on vacation," writes Kathy Peterson of January's clue, "Where France borders Mongolia." "Maybe some freakish act of nature ...pushed the two ... together ... or one or both countries traded spots on the map with another." This left Peterson to ponder: "If France bordered Mongolia now, did Spain border India?"

While Peterson jests about her "a-ha moment," Louisa Griffes directly identifies January's I Spy as Cafe Felix on Main Street. "The fleur-de-lis symbol (French for lily or iris) [is] on the awning over the entrance to [this] ... French Bistro," she writes. "It sits next to bd's Mongolian Grill ... hence, France borders Mongolia!" Felix fan Margaret Klauscher adds, "They've got awesome crepes!"

Cafe Felix started as a coffeehouse in 1997, adding tapas, wine, and entrees over the years in its transition to a European bistro. It is one of the many restaurants that participated in Restaurant Week during mid-January--an opportunity to try lunches and dinners with set pricing at various restaurants downtown. If you missed it, don't worry. Restaurant Week returns in June.

We received twenty-eight entries identifying Cafe Felix. Our randomly drawn winner, Tess Roth, is taking her gift certificate to the Saint Joseph Mercy Health System.

To enter this month's contest, use the clue and photo on the "Back Page" of the February Observer to find the spot shown, then follow the instructions at the bottom of the page.    (end of article)
