Editorial Review

Caboose Cafe & Bakery in Del Ray has one of the most interesting menus I have encountered. Along with the standard American sandwiches, soups and salads are Ethiopian specialties, served only during dinner hours. I don't think Ethiopian food travels especially well, but it might be worth picking up a couple of items. Sometimes the innovations here don't work. The Cuban sandwich transformed into a panino lacked the hard roll that is part and parcel of this dish. But the salads are good, as are the pastries.
