While sequels almost never live up to the original, there are a few exceptions, most notably Godfather II, The Empire Strikes Back, and Bring it On: All or Nothing. Go Toros! Spicing up the menu to ensure their sequel doesn't go all Matrix, Trolley Car Cafe.
Boasting stark white walls and a cement floor stamped into wooden planks, and sitting you around stainless tables whether inside or on the back patio, TCC (from the minds behind East Falls' Trolley Car Diner) is an eco-friendly bistro (partly solar-powered with a kitchen garden providing tomatoes and veggies) serving up breakfast staples, twists on sammies/salads, and desserts from the previously 50-year vacant Bathey House -- finally, something from a bathhouse you can admit to enjoying regularly. Breakfast goodies include fresh-baked pastries; a frittata 3-egg omelet with the option to add meat, more cheese, and a deconstructed salad's-worth of veggies; a Monte Cristo comprised of a bagel stuffed with cherrywood ham, turkey, a fried egg, and Jarlsberg; and a Belgian waffle that can be made with buckwheat, though breakfast is a little early for antiquated stereotypes. Lunch brings 'wiches prepped your way (made on wheat, wraps, paninis, subs, or grinders) including the Trolley Car Cobb with baby field greens, grilled chicken, caramelized onions, roasted red peppers, and Maytag blue cheese, and the Grilled Chicken Pesto with arugula and more of those onions, along with salads like a Caprese made with baby greens, olive oil, and Buffalo mozzarella, for which you will open wide (right).
For drinks it's La Colombe coffee, house-brewed sweet and unsweet teas, and there's a menu full of desserts including a couple of cakes, a Nelson's ice cream & waffle combo, malts, milkshakes, sundaes, and a seriously gussied-up banana split -- such a cool move, you'd be tempted to Bring it On, at least until something Toro.
