City Pages' Description

After Rustica bakery left the space it shared with Java Jack's, the coffee shop's owners decided to reboot with a family friendly café concept. The space looks mostly the same: The outsize windows are as lovely as ever, and tall-backed, olive-colored banquettes on each end of the room contribute to a slightly more formal ambiance. (Java Jack's previous collection of afternoon coffee sippers has mostly cleared out, so the vibe is less buzzing.) Favorite items include the house-made linguini topped with a tender, braised meatball the size of a tennis ball, curried vegetable pasty with kale salad, and the perfectly pillowy cream cheese frosting-topped cinnamon rolls.
