Divinity for a Dollar.

Posted By on Wed, May 27, 2009 at 6:45 AM


I'm all about a bargain, and maybe that's why I am keen on Dave's Place on Center Street.  The long restaurant a block and a half from the Statehouse Convention Center is your usual soup-and-sandwich sort of place that dot downtown for diners with little time to spare and no desire to move parked cars. 

Of course, it could be too easy to shortchange the place based on that assessment.  So don't.  Instead, go if you can (there's metered parking out front) and grab yourself a good sandwich or one of the specials (listed each day on the eatery's website).  And don't miss out on having dessert.  Each day, there's something different.  I rather enjoyed this memory-evoking slice of Key Lime Pie.  No, it wasn't some fruit-bit laden entity of out-of-state procurement, nor was it some creation that came packaged in a box from the freezer case.  This was one of those Southern granny specials where Key Lime Juice meets sweetened condensed milk, and it made me very, very happy.  Can't beat the price either -- just a buck.

Dave's Place is only open 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. during the week (and for a few more hours Friday nights) but they also do catering and the sort.  (501) 372-DAVE.
