You've got to try the Cafe Shambala--especially the lunch buffet (spicy potatos and veggie mo-mos are my favorite!). Mo-Mos are filled pastrys, like huge ravioli. Cozy, fun Avenues eatery where the owners cook, wait tables and wash dishes. Your money stays local!\r
I try to bring my out-of-town guests to Shambala and steer my business lunches in that direction. Even if you just want to sit and chat, order a Tibetan sweet tea--very good.
Pros: Great, authentic food; sole proprietorship; cozy atmosphere
Cons: A little tough to get there on a bicycle!
