Have you ever gotten tired of dining out at fancy restaurants and all of a sudden, you just wanted to grab some comfort food?
Kev and I discovered a hidden gem in Beltline not too long ago as we searched for a brunch place on the weekend. On a cold, snowy day, all we wanted was something to comfort our tummy. That’s how we decided to check out Bumpy’s Cafe.
This little cafe was bustling with customers coming for a cup of coffee or grabbing a bite to eat. What immediately caught our attention was its emphasis on delivering home-style and house-made food & drinks. On the shelves sat packages of locally-roasted, organic coffee. All its baked goods were made with real butter, real sugar and real flour.
The vintage accessories and posters on the wall transformed the cafe into a cozy, nostalgic retreat.
Kev ordered a large bowl of chili ($7) and a piece of bread ($1). With a blast of sweet and a touch of spice, the chili was so addicting that you couldn’t stop eating it. The beans were cooked to perfect softness with bits of ground beef, mushrooms, onions in the sauce and cheddar cheese on top. It was a bummer to have to pay extra for the bread though.
My butter chicken ($8.75) was surprisingly spicy! I liked how tender the chicken was and the sauce being not too oily. Price-wise, it was a bit expensive for such a small size.
In my opinion, Bumpy’s cafe is worth exploring for people who are looking for healthy, simple food. Its price is a reflection of the quality of the ingredients it uses. If you’re looking for exceptional service and unique eats, it would be better off dining somewhere else.
