Looks like some good moves are occurring.
Divan Mediterranean Grill is opening on 6th between south and bainbridge. The place looks great.
Baklava Cafe opened up on the north side of south between 6th and 7th. Surprise! They sell baklava. And espresso, and other good stuff.
European Republic has opened next to the old McDonalds and their food rocks. Great vegetarian selections, wraps, and of course frites.
