Morning Star Cafe Sign
So as some of you know i used to live in the University District,home of college kids,cheap eats,and bars.Well after a couple years it was time to move.After a close friend of mine bought a house in Hillman City i jumped right on that!So where is Hillman City?Its about 5 minutes south of Columbia City,a growing neighborhood with great neighbors and a few businesses Tin Umbrella Coffee Shop,Big Chickie (Peruvian chicken)Spinnaker Bay Brewery,Rocket Crossfit,with more businesses on the way.After hanging out at my coffee shop and talking to people,the one thing they always wanted was brunch.With only two places providing brunch makes things difficult for alot of folk.So I decided to start a pop up brunch called Morning Star Cafe (which is the definition of my name Tarik) serving Mediterranean style brunch right outside Tin Umbrella Coffee Shop.So far i’ve done three and the reviews have been goin well! here are the menus as well as the new one for this Sunday.So if you have time please stop by for a cup o joe a bite or just to say hi!
