The Great Commoner
The gist: A boutique breakfast and brunch cafe from chefs Matt Knio (the master baker behind Cannelle Patisserie) and Zane Makky.
The food: If Matt Knio is involved, you know you’re in for carb excellence. The extensive menu spans the globe in terms of flavors, from shakshuka and ful mudammas (stewed fava beans) to breakfast staples such as Belgian waffles and French toast.
The cost: Sides go for $3 - $8, with toasts ranging from $10 - $12. Expect sweet and savory brunch mains as well as salads and sandwiches in the ballpark of $9 - $18.
