European-style coffeehouse in Little Village.

Our Review

Catedral Cafe, an Internet coffeehouse in Little Village, has the charmingly kitschy feel of a cathedral gift shop: the bright blue-ceilinged room is decorated with crosses, religious statues, and even a Pope John Paul II banner. It's BYO, and after we sat down our waitress immediately offered to open our wine for us; throughout our meal the service was attentive but relaxed. We started with skin-on fries and jalapeno poppers, a deliciously evil concoction of chiles stuffed with cream cheese, then breaded and fried. My friend liked his smoked salmon croissant but was less enthusiastic about the enormous side of pasta salad—too many green olives (my pesto chicken bruschetta also suffered from a surfeit of them). Other offerings include sandwiches and panini, pasta, and a variety of crepes. For dessert we had espresso and huge portions of cheesecake and tiramisu drizzled with raspberry sauce—and it all came in at under 40 bucks.
