Lunch @ Hog Wild Cafe

Some friends recommended this small cafe on the North Side, corner of 22nd and 2nd Ave, open for breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday 'til about 2 pm or so.


We gave them a try and came out good. Carol had a decent hamburger with just the fixings she wanted, and I had a ham salad sandwich that reminded me of the ones my mother used to make, together with some pretty good though fairly thick potato soup.


Lemonade and iced tea were excellent. A free scoop of Wilcoxson's ice cream, from just a few blocks away was much appreciated. Good friendly service and reasonable prices were noted too. I will go back for what looked like a good breakfast menu.

I don't think I've ever seen any advertisements for these folk and I forgot to ask how long they have been in business.

Give them a try.

I've been back a couple of times for lunch. It usually is pretty full between 12 and 1pm. They serve down home stuff. Today I had the special: pork slices with mashed potatoes and gravy and some corn. Reasonable prices for everything. Nice waitresses.

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
