Cute coffee shop and cafe across from the Eckhart Park pool.

Our Review

Former caterer Karen Gerod serves fresh, organic foods from local and socially conscious vendors--Ineeka Tea, Naked juices and smoothies, and java from Just Coffee--and uses them in her sandwiches, salads, and sweets at this cafe awash in mild, bright shades of aqua and sea foam green. I can think of no more perfect treat for kids who've worked up an appetite across the street in the Eckhart Park pool than a PB&J on Red Hen's scrumptious chocolate bread. A tuna sandwich on pumpernickel gets a kick from capers, avocado, cucumber, and lemon, and a ham-and-Swiss panini was satisfying. By no means miss Gerod's cupcakes. She also bakes her own muffins, cookies, and scones, which she keeps diminutive by design--"small but rich" is her motto. Swim Cafe is now open for dinner from Tuesday through Friday and is BYOB after 6 PM.
