Tucked into the Kingshighway Hills neighborhood of south city, Corvid’s Café is the quintessential neighborhood café — a place to gather, have a light meal or grab a cup of coffee to go. Owners John and Cindy Panian had been operating a catering company next door for eight years, and when the adjacent restaurant space (formerly World Café) became available, they jumped at the chance to put their own stamp on the place. The menu features light, classic café fare, such as tarragon-infused chicken salad and a spinach salad topped with dried fruit, sunflower seeds and Gorgonzola. The signature item is the “Crabwich,” a fried crabcake fritter served with oven roasted tomatoes, arugula and ancho chile sauce on a pretzel croissant. Other offerings include housemade pizzas and dressed-up baked potatoes. It’s the perfect place to sink into an overstuffed couch in front of the fireplace, sip a cup of coffee and snack.
