Hands down one of my favourite places in the world. Iraqi owned, Jordanian managed, socially with-it, every city should emulate B and P

Insider tip: Get the tempeh sandwich. It's crunchy, sweet and peppery, the tempeh sandwich, layered with roasted red pepper, arugula and smoky tempeh (a fermented, firm protein derived from soy).

I am sadden that they got rid of the Key Lime Pie, it was so delicious! Now I have to find a new place to get my sweet and tart fix!

Restaurant & bookstore. Inspired by poet Langston Hughes, this spot draws a funky and diverse crowd and serves up American-style comfort foods like homemade pizzas, meatloaf, hot paninis & a lot more

Great place for 1:1's. They are my favorite Busboys location. You can sit anywhere. Great WiFi service and staff. Food is awesome too.

The Feast

Order the shrimp and grits when you finally snag a table here. The shrimp are sauteed with asparagus, roasted corn, and tomatoes in a Cajun cream sauce alongside a basil grits cake.

If you don't know what Firesheep is, and you're surfing the wifi here you need to. You could get seriously hacked. Practice safe surfing.

How much do you like it?
