Shhhh… Secret Lunch Spot

Shhhh… Secret Lunch Spot

Direct from my inbox today is a reminder about a unique (and rather unknown) once-weekly lunch spot that I’ve been meaning to share with the DAB community.

It is Cafe Divine at St. David’s Episcopal Church that rises to life only on Thursday’s from Noon-1pm.

There in the 3rd floor dining hall, Culinary Institute trained chef, Ray Trono, serves up a mighty tasty and healthy full MEAL of entree, two sides, desert and beverage for only $8.00 (50-cents more for take out) and served by some very nice folks.

Full details — and the menu du jour — can be found here.  Tip: Enter from the little parking lot off San Jacinto between 7th & 8th streets.  That leads you into a lobby where you will be directed to the 3rd floor.  Just say “Cafe Devine”.
