This week, The New York Times takes a look at two new eateries that have opened up on Walnut Street in Montclair—Le Salbuen Cafe Market and the Red Eye Cafe, in close proximity to the train station.
According to the article, which you can read in its entirety here, Le Salbuen, at 620 square feet, has indoor seating for about 20 and two outdoor tables. It is open for breakfast and lunch, with the lunch menu stretching into early dinner, until 7 p.m., Tuesday through Friday; a more extensive dinner is served on Saturdays until 11 p.m. The menu is eclectic; on a recent Thursday, a Cuban empanada ($5), organic frittata ($9) and vegan gumbo ($11) were listed on an outdoor chalkboard.
Across the street at the Red Eye Cafe, the article says that the offerings include a delicately spiced iced latte called the New Orleans Sludge ($3.75) and the Blue Velvet sandwich, which consists of roast beef with pickled blueberries and shallots, cream cheese and arugula on ciabatta ($8.95). Besides breakfast, lunch and coffee drinks, Red Eye serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays and dinner nightly.
