Hodge on 7th Early Birds Can Sip Their Morning Espressos at First Cup Cafe


Stop by First Cup Cafe early in the morning and you’ll understand where this restaurant’s name comes from. Starting at 6 a.m., customers start filing into this neighborhood cafe for their morning cup of joe. Customers may seem sleepy when they arrive, but after they’ve finished off a steaming cup of coffee and one of the cafe’s breakfast specials, they leave alert and ready to start their day.

Go for the classic breakfast platter, which combines two eggs, hash browns, toast, and your choice of bacon, sausage, or ham. Alternatively, you can simply grab a toasted bagel topped with cream cheese, butter, or hummus, and head out the door to start your day. Breakfast is the big draw here, but First Cup Cafe does steady business throughout the day, with its soup and sandwich specials drawing a big lunchtime crowd. Insider’s tip for Hodge on 7th: Try the classic pairing of a grilled cheese sandwich with a bowl of creamy tomato soup!
