Young Chefs' Big Bets IV



Sava's new menu continues the cafe's emphasis on sandwiches, but, with a bigger kitchen and more cooler space, she's upgrading ingredients--using fresh pineapple instead of canned, for instance. And though she's added some fancier entrees, even those are compatible with student budgets: roasted duck breast with fig compote and redskin potatoes at $14.99 is as expensive as it gets.

Sava's breakfast menu has also grown more elaborate, with crepes, French toast, waffles, croissant sandwiches, omelets, and hashes. "My goal is to turn this place into the power breakfast joint on the east side" of downtown, Lelcaj says, adding that Cafe Zola "is the power breakfast place on the west side, but some people don't want to walk that far."

Sava's, 216 S. State. 623-2233. Daily 8 a.m.-midnight.
