The Blue Cat Cafe, which recently opened in downtown Highland Park, serves up more than just coffee.
In addition to pour-over Intelligentsia, the cafe overs flat bread pizzas made in-house for $6.99. Served on thick bread, the pizzas comes with the options of fresh vegetable toppings and different kinds of cheeses. Each ingredient is $.50 extra, but simplicity is key: you only need a few to make for a flavorful dish.
I was there with a co-worker working on a few stories, and we split a pizza with mozzarella, Parmesan, tomatoes and mushrooms. It was definitely enough for two people to share, and, as far as the flavor was concerned, it didn't need anything else.
The only downside was we were there before 5 p.m., because after 5 you can get your pizza with a glass of wine or a draught beer.
Have you had a Blue Cat pizza yet? What'd you think?
