Today the kids are headed back to school! For the grown up ones like Michael’s eldest daughter Ella, today is the start of a new adventure. COLLEGE. Freshman year is so exciting. So much to absorb, new routines to learn, new people to meet. Daddy Schwartz called upon Dr. Seuss for the words to say goodbye and good luck as his eldest chickie flew the coop for Tulane University this weekend: “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…”
And since you are smart like Ms. Schwartz, you know you can’t start the day, especially the first day back to school, without a good breakfast. ella has your back thanks to some additions to the breakfast line up that happened over the weekend! This morning began in hypermode as Miami artist Alejandro Contreras (our friend from Design Miami’s past) put the finishing touches on our new blackboard to complete last night’s vinyl installation. Kitchen manager Vanessa Nunez put out the cafe’s first Daily Scramble, two eggs, today with caramelized onions and herbs, with True Loaf wheat toast. Alejandro should have an extra kick in his step today, especially after that $350 macchiato (I fixed the decimal point. Where’s my refund!?)
Those looking for gluten-free options have many things to choose from on the current menu, but we are also pleased to now offer the sandwiches and other dishes with gluten-free bread upon request! Zak the Baker’s gluten-free chocolate almond cookies also came in to satisfy those sweet teeth out there. Enjoy getting scrambled, take a seat under the shade in Palm Court and ease into the school year. Fall’s almost here! Please find the updated menu at ellapop.me!
