Calla Lily Café

Flowering plants, music, assorted daily newspapers, and cheery crockery all contribute to the pleasing ambiance of the Calla Lily Café, a comfortable spot on the Cambridge/Somerville border.

Check the board for such daily specials as the Italian grilled-chicken salad, which includes green beans, roasted red peppers, artichokes, and black olives dressed in a tangy balsamic vinaigrette and accompanied by pita or focaccia bread ($6.95). A popular choice is the roast-beef sandwich with boursin, Dijon mustard, and caramelized onions on an herb baguette ($4.95). This can be ordered with a large cup of soup -- the minestrone is wonderful -- for an additional $1.50. Thai noodles (6.95 as an entree) and three-cheese-and-onion pizza ($5.95) also sell out quickly. Creative side dishes ($2.50) include grilled cauliflower with sun-dried tomatoes and olives and a roasted root-vegetable salad with chipolte vinaigrette. Customers can sample three side salads at once by choosing a "Taste of the Case" ($6.95). For dessert, try a blondie ($1) or an oatmeal-raisin or chocolate-chip cookie (75 cents).

The Calla Lily Café, located at 92 Kirkland Street, in Cambridge, is open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Catering available. Call 492-2545.
