This is probably the reason as to why I'm still up. I had a Cafe Mocha. It's nice to see a cafe with a modest selection of drinks, nothing too fancy at all. They have food as well, however I haven't had the chance to eat anything from this establishment yet. It's a really relaxing place to just sit and as you can see, free wi-fi for all you laptop users out there.
I'm not quite sure what the deal is with that, i.e. if you get free wi-fi with an order or not. If you don't like old furniture that may be a little dusty this isn't for you. However, if you do happen to enjoy the hominess of places like this, you'll love it. They have live music which is very mellow and for the most part entertaining. Coming soon... our Filipino cover of the Growing Pains theme song. Show me that smile again everybody... show me that smile.
This place was awesome. A little on the pricier side, but let me just say, cloth napkins! This isn't Chili's folks.
The location is a little out of place seeing how it's pretty much in the market place that's on the corner of Market and Euclid. I got pork chops and two sides (Lagniappes), one fried okra and one collard greens. Pork chops were crunchy and meaty, and nicely seasoned... nothing like my own over-zealous chops. I've never had okra until today just because I've always been weirded out by its stickiness but the okra was as kids say, "the bomb;" they were crunchy and firm not at all what I expected. The collard greens were yummy and I wish I could have kept eating. I didn't have enough room for dessert, unfortunately, I guess I'll save it for another day. I also had a Bayou Lemonade which was like a Long Island with "a peach and [???] twist." I forgot what the other ingredient was. That must have been one of the greatest cocktails I've ever had. It wasn't too strong but it wasn't too watered down either. Perfection.

I think this is at this place called Aunt Emma's which is in Chula Vista E st. Near the Budget driving school. I got a Roasted Turkey Sandwich with cole slaw and hot tea and iced tea. The other two got a Turkey Sausage Omelette with Avocados substituting the eggs for egg beaters and fruit. They also got a cottage cheese pancake which was deliciously smothered with huckleberry syrup. Their coffee cups still had lipstick on the rim (disgusting) but they had a variety of teas to go with their tap-filled hot water.
So I'm supposing that this a German Ice Cream shop. I had the black walnut ice cream which was pretty good. It was a little too black walnutty for me, but don't get me wrong it was good. I don't remember how much it cost for a single scoop, but it was surely reasonable. Address is 726 A Avenue, National City, CA Here is the link to Niederfranks.
