The Mayor of Thames

One rainy Tuesday a few of us decided to grab a drink at a bar up the street from our apartment.  On the walk home down Thames, Pat managed to recommend multiple cafes, stop to chat with a few friends, and say hello to the man at our local parilla.  It was clear that Thames had become Pat’s official turf, so we decided to name him the mayor of the street.  After giving him the honor, I thought it was appropriate to listen to one of his many recommendations and visited a Thames café that he had been raving about.  I brought Quail to Dain Usina Cultural for a hangover recovery meal and was pleased with our chosen lunch spot.  The space is half café, half bookstore, with high ceilings and huge windows that make it extra bright.  The white walls and sleek furniture give off a modern vibe, and few random pieces of abstract art give it perfect pops of color.  We each ordered fresh ginger orange juice (strongly suggested by Patrick), and I chose a grilled chicken sandwich with Gruyere, caramelized onions, and avocado on ciabatta.  The juice and sandwich were really delicious and just what I needed to recover after a night on Pub Crawl.
