So, I know I don't get out much but after visiting Pillow Cafe, I found saying (to myself of course, though maybe to my brother also)...where the hell have I been?! Whether it's the Huevos Verde, Nachos, or Bacon-Stuffed-Waffles, I can sing nothing but praises about this cool spot I've only recently discovered. The staff is friendly and the drinks are nice. Oh, and did I mention the Cheesy Grits?! Yes. That's right, I said it. If you're not in the mood for food, check out the coffee which is delish as well. I'm looking forward to discovering the rest of the menu.

Pillow is nothing incredibly special nor is there anything particularly unique about it. Nonetheless the food, especially the humus sandwich, is full of flavor and the lattes are always warm. Sweet pastries and cookies are a wonderful accessory to anything you order here. This is a Clinton Hill Starbucks and is engineered as a place to relax, read, chatter and work.

Pillow is a storefront bar offering poor service and "sandwiches." Maybe they provided some people "special" service but it didn't happen with me. I ordered the "grilled chicken" wrap with honey mustard and "field greens" as advertised on their blackboard outside. NO GO! Bad attitude, bad service, lack of specials they advertise. I LIVE IN THIS neighborhood.

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
