Tasty, healthy food ... and fast! 9/26/2006

Calypso Cafe on Elliston is a fabulous place to get something a little different without spending tons of money. They are also great for "to go" orders. PROs: The food is healthy and once you order, it is brought to you in record time. I have many favorites on this menu, but some standouts include: - Rotisserie Chicken - served with an absolutely delicious Caribbean BBQ sauce or Jamaican Curried sauce. Haven't had their new Jerk sauce, but I'll bet it is hot and, like the others, yummy. - Cuban Black Beans - these are really addictive. They are in a delicious sauce, and topped with with onion and a dollop of sour cream. To die for! - Spiced Sweet Potatoes - another excellent side and a must-try. - Boija Muffins - these taste like sweet bread and have coconut on top. Almost dessert-like. Very good, but sometimes not as fresh as at other times. - Lucayan Salad, Black Bean Salad - two delicious salads. I got a bit addicted to the Lucayan salad at one point, but I think I've recovered...I think... - Fruit Tea - house specialty beverage that combines iced tea with fruit juices. Refills are on the house. CONS: - This location is in a very busy area and can get very crowded. Sometimes the waiting line snakes out the door, especially during weekday lunch hours. - The tables can also be very close to one another, so if you need a place to have a quiet, out-of-the-way meal, avoid Calypso Elliston at lunch time on weekdays. VERDICT: Definitely worth a visit - you'll be back! more
