Christina and John Salierno are the heart and soul of the sweetest cafe on Walnut Street in Montclair. Christina's Portuguese background and John's chef parents may have given them their love of food, but the two together are more than the sum of their parts.
During the day, stop by for a green tea latte, an 18-hour cold-brewed iced coffee, or a protein drink. Organic juices come in such healthy combinations as the Roots: beet, carrot, apple, ginger, celery, and tumeric. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the restaurant serves a menu of healthy, refined dishes like an organic black bean burrito, chicken curry in pita, and local Portuguese chorizo. Reservations are a good idea.
