The coffee is always fresh here at Mishka's Cafe, thanks to the ancient gigantic coffee grinder/roaster sitting amidst the tables in this busy cafe. There is an eclectic mix of sandwiches and salads as well as calzones, wraps, ice cream, smoothies and Italian sodas among other delicacies. In addition to the aroma of coffee the atmosphere is culturally spiced up with local musicians playing favorite numbers.
Regarded by many Davis residents as the best Thai food in town, Sophia's Thai Kitchen and Bar is often packed to the brim. Soft lighting and dark wood set the tone of the decor inside, while a high window overlooks a shaded courtyard where outdoor dining is available year-round. All the dishes on the menu reflect the chef's native Thai heritage and flair for spice, and the variety of fresh ingredients go a long way in creating that memorable flavor. Be sure to start off the meal with some of the "Appi-Thai-zers," especially the specialty Tod Mun corn fritters. Other specials include the sour-and-spicy soups, Boss' Favorite Green Curry, and Basil with Peanut Sauce. The restaurant also has a popular bar adjoining it, so drinks are available during dinner.
Sudwerk is a great place to catch a fast meal and some beer! Copper-colored kettles and huge circular structured seats make up the decor. The ambiance is very unruly, with noise levels touching the top of the decibel chart! The food is all German and you should give the sausages, burgers and sandwiches a try. While you're in the lobby gulping the food down, walk over to the bar for some exquisite Sudwerk beer. All the beer is brewed in accordance with "Reinheitsgebot”—the German purity law. It can get boisterous in here, but that's the fun of it all!
Lawyers, farmers, students and antique collectors are likely to populate this bar on a typical afternoon. Friday and Saturday nights, the regulation pool table is pushed out of the way, and dancers crowd the floor. The music will probably be a local rhythm and Blues or country band. Sunday nights bring out the local billiard talent for a contest with prizes that make the competition interesting. There is no food here, however, there is a decent collection of beers on tap as well as mixed drinks.
