We’ve long been anticipating Baba’s opening in our neighborhood. The bakery and cafe is brought to you by the gang who started That Food Truck (which has been laid to rest) and now the Baba’s Porch truck. They’ve been renovating the space at the corner of Summit and Hudson for while, and just recently it opened!

The space is long and narrow, with a counter for ordering and a view into the kitchens.

Right now the menu is pretty simple, but it’s been growing already. The menu features a griddle muffin sandwich with your choice of meats or veggies, an assortment of baked goods, a cassoulet, and plenty of Thunderkiss Coffee.

The setup is nice and cozy, and I can’t wait to see how they grow into it.

I stopped by one morning for a griddle muffin sandwich with sausage. It comes with a fried egg and cheese as well. The muffin (baked in house) was soft and puffy, with a thick slice of the sausage, which was seasoned nicely. All told: a heck of a breakfast sandwich.

For seating, they have a large communal table near the front. While I enjoyed my sausage, another family came in for breakfast and coffee.

With their location sandwiched (see what I did there?) between Clintonville and the University District, and on a route leading toward downtown, they’re an easy stop in the mornings or for a lunch break.

You can also buy bags of Thunderkiss Coffee. The guys at Baba’s said they’ll soon offer full service coffee, with espresso drinks and more.

Early 2017 updates! We couldn’t resist sharing about more visits. Here’s how the front counter is developing.

We grabbed a cinnamon roll, which is chewy and not too sweet.

They’re featuring more meats on the breakfast sandwiches. I highly recommend the house-made chorizo.

We’ve encountered the also-excellent brisket breakfast sandwich.

Watch for their soup specials, too. We recently encountered a ham and bean soup that’s already one of our stand-out tastes of 2017. You can order the soup with a gooey grilled cheese sandwich.

Like I said, we’re excited to have them in the neighborhood, and I hope they continue to grow!
