Written By Guest Writer Folks / Reporter May 11, 2012 Lunch Pick: The Hot and Cold Cafe SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Looking for some “slow food, fast”? The Soup Peddler, soon to be renamed The Hot and Cold Cafe, is Cook Street Village’s latest eatery specializing in express lunches: soups and hot/cold sandwiches, salads, coffee and pie. Current owner (and previous consulting chef) Cosmo Meens and wife Leah have taken over the business initially founded by Rob Berg and will be transitioning to a new menu this month. The sneak preview is up on the cafe’s wall, and select items are now available for order. left: Yellow Coconut Curry Soup with Organic Focaccia. Photos by Deanna Ladret The menu features three regular soups and a daily special, including at least one vegan and two gluten-free soup choices. All soups come with a fresh slice of organic house-made focaccia. Open-faced meatball sandwiches (meat from Cook Street’s Island Meat & Seafood) are served hot and made to order, while three varieties of cold sandwiches are located in a self-serve fridge along with containers of cold soup to go. In addition to their eclectic little lineup of globally-influenced offerings like an Italian Meatball Sandwich, Ireland Farm Free Range BBQ Chicken Salad and Arborio Rice Pudding, the Hot and Cold menu strikes a nice balance between animal and vegetable––there’s plenty here for the meat lover and the vegan alike. Hours: 11:00am-7:00pm 7 days a week. Cash only. The Hot and Cold Cafe- Slow Food Fast 313 Cook Street (778) 433-1007 Phone-in pickup orders are accepted daily when placed before 11am.
