DETAILS
Chef-owner Eugenia Theodosopoulos serves stellar breakfast fare and baked goods at Tempe's Essence Bakery Cafe.   




No alcohol available. Serving breakfast and lunch 7 am-3 pm Tue-Sat. Closed Sun-Mon. "It's astonishing, really, to find food of this caliber at such reasonable prices - not because it's so la-ti-da (it isn't) but because it manages to be simple but sophisticated, healthy but decadent all at once. The sautéed mushrooms that accompany the Big Breakfast, for example, are deglazed with white wine, while uniformly wonderful homemade soups (sweet potato, for example) may get a splash of sherry, a swirl of cream or both."
— Nikki Buchanan, Special to The Arizona Republic, Dec. 23, 2009
