Moonwinks Cafe

 

continued

Eight varieties of bagels are delivered fresh from Elaine's Bagels in Berkley. Various versions of quiche, including vegetarian and classic ham and cheese, come from Terry Bakery in Ypsilanti. A broccoli and cheese quiche was chockablock with vegetables but had very little classic quiche creaminess and almost no crust flavor or texture. A chicken Caesar wrap proved to be a tasty and right-sized lunch of tender white-meat chicken dressed with a lemony mix and bound up in flat bread.

Three of us split a monstrous piece of gooey chocolate-peanut butter cake for dessert. Moonwinks also offers lots of classic soda-fountain creations and drinks like frappes and milkshakes made with Ashby's Sterling ice cream, made in Ludington. Coffee is reliable, since they use Zingerman's roast.

Lunch is produced quickly, making it an ideal spot for people who work in nearby Plymouth Road offices. But I like Moonwinks even more in the morning. I don't know if it's the family connection of the owners, the absence of annoying background music, or the strong community ties-local artists' work is shown in regularly changing displays, with Washtenaw County commissioner Barbara Bergman's photos on view in June-but this is an uncommonly pleasant place to sit and read the paper or work on a laptop.
