Through a random internet search last night, I stumbled onto the SELMA cafe here on the Westside of Ann Arbor. Hosted by Lisa Gottlieb and Jeff McCabe in their home, it is a once-a-week Friday breakfast from 6:30 to 10:00AM — open to the public. They have guest chefs each week who prepare local foods. Today was Scott MacInnis preparing omelets to order featuring Michigan Mushrooms, hoop-house greens, house-cured meats and local cheese. As I walked up the driveway to the side entrance of their house, I admired the tidy collection of chickens and neat-as-a-pin garden plots. Once inside, I was warmly greeted by Lisa who offered up some masking tape for a name tag and sat me in the kitchen with a U of M law student and her boyfriend visiting from Boston, and Archie — a character active on the local food scene who was seemingly known by everyone in the room. I really wanted to take a picture of the meal, but was embarrassed with my new companions at the table. Shoulda, coulda, woulda. The conversation was lively and the food was divine. Volunteers help out in the kitchen and do the serving. The room was alive with chatter and animated discussions. There was plenty of Roos Roast coffee to go along with the meal and some mighty tasty whole grain bread. I may just become a regular!
