Pork Store Cafe serves the kind of food you’d eat if you needed to bulk up for a movie role the “wrong way”. The food is very hearty and also very delicious, and the vibe is very laid back. The pancakes at brunch are the way to go, or the eggs in a nest if you want savory. Hit it for breakfast - even a really early once since they open at 7 - or brunch.
