I've aways thought this was such a cool building. It used to be an Oriental Textile Mill building in the Heights, then was Textile the restaurant and now Kraftsmen Cafe.
I hate this purple mural. It makes the place feel ghetto or something and doesn't quite go along with the rest of the space. I get that it's neat, someone drew it, maybe even with chalk, but it's just not aesthetically appealing and alters the atmosphere of a quiet little rustic cafe.
The interior was rustic, maybe even a little French country.
I had the chocolate croissant and a cranberry ginger scone, both good.
I loved the decor and furnishings. I definitely want to come back and have breakfast or a coffee with a girl friend.
It's also a cafe. They have pastries, full breakfast menu and coffee. They also do catering for parties and sell wholesale. Gawd, that mural is hideous!
To sum it up, I like the building, liked the interior, the idea of it, the breakfast and lunch I need to try. I definitely want to go back with a girlfriend, but it's not in the most central location and so far I'm not a huge fan of the food, but I want it to do well because it looks cool. We'll see...
