Another tour of Webster’s Nearby Deliciousness

Another tour of Webster’s Nearby Deliciousness

Roving West End reporter checking in with my latest updates on eating and drinking in the Webster Street area. First off, after weeks of making COVID-19 modifications, Spritzers Coffee House on Central Avenue has reopened.

Local art remains on the walls where tables and chairs are “taped off,” but they’re still making good coffee, and have snacks for pick up. If life ever returns to “normal” I suggest ordering their vegetarian quiche.

West End Crepes, associated with Wescafe, serves up a wide variety of big delicious crepes. I don’t recall the exact crepe I had, but it was good, and no Nutella was involved. Call ahead on the weekends, crepes take a while to make!

Last on my bemasked West-End walk was the Aria International Market. This is my go-to spot for Greek honey yogurt. They also sell smoothies, sandwiches, Mitchells Ice Cream, Jeremiahs Pick Coffee and more. Bella, their cute white dog, might bark hello!
