Wonderful little bar and bistro with cool outsider art for sale on the walls. Great local craft beers on tap, regular live music nights and great comfort food. A Blast.

Parking on Roosevelt can be difficult, especially during the afternoon rushour. I had left my cell phone at Racer after spending several hours the evening prior lounging in one of the upstairs plush and threadbare couches playing a heated game of Scrabble and reminicing over the variety of 80's VCR tapes which were offered. I parallel parked and the person behind me threw a fit, honking and flashing me. I hurridly walked into Racer and was greeted by a standing ovation from a tablefull of white-haired senior gentlemen who had witnessed the whole affair. Even the dog wagged his way over to me with congratulations. The bartender handed me my phone and I went on my way, feeling as if I had just left my parent's house after a satisfying meal. I will be back.

I love going to Cafe Racer late in the morning on a Saturday to ease into the day after a late night. Kurt and crew are attentive, friendly, and the coffee is amazing (I get a short double latte in a vintage china cup). People roll in, grab a cup to go, or hang out, perhaps get a hair of the dog, and even get to know each other a bit. Scooterists, punks, students, parents with kids--it's a smart, diverse crowd. There's always an interesting conversation happening. Or you can sit anonymously in the corner and read or get online with the WiFi.

The staff takes pride in serving home cooked meals. My favorite is the corned beef hash, and in the evenings Kurt or Cissy will often whip up something special like chili, tacos, or stew. It feels like they made it just for you, and they did.
