Evan Dohrmann and Ali Jepson got the idea for their recently opened St. Johns outpost when they met the cafe of their dreams in South Island, New Zealand. Their tiny breakfast and lunch spot, with five tables and a window bar in addition to a couple of sidewalk tables and a bike-thru window, packs a lot in the small space. Baked-in-house sweets, such as doughnut holes and cupcakes big and small (pastries $1.75-$2.50), and old-fashioned, hard-to-find sodas crowd the case, while a drinking-chocolate machine, brimming candy jars and locally made jams and preserves surround it. But don't just stick to the front of the house—order something plated in the kitchen. Just about everything is made from scratch and features local ingredients, including delicious soups like purple potato, cheddar, bacon chowder and North African peanut stew. (LC)
