The Short Or­der

Counter Cul­ture is a pop­u­lar lo­cal haunt; very rarely is the park­ing lot or din­ing room empty. Break­fasts are best. Lunch in­cludes daily soups and an ar­ray of sand­wiches and sal­ads. At din­ner, the menu is more up­scale, fea­tur­ing sev­eral seafood dishes, chicken, and

steak. This is a comfortable, col­or­ful place to hang out, peo­ple-watch, or gab with old friends. But with its

groovy-grungy in­dus­trial-hip­ster chic, lo­cal art, and free wireless In­ter­net ser­vice, food al­most seems be­side the point. Rec­om­mended: cin­na­mon rolls, huevos

rancheros, and Cobb salad.

Rat­ings range from 0 to 4 chiles. This re­flects the re­viewer’s ex­pe­ri­ence with re­gard to food and drink, at­mos­phere, ser­vice, and value.
