South Congress Cafe

South Congress Burger

South Congress Seafood Parfait South Congress Seafood Parfait


I love walking on South Congress but never noticed this restaurant before: South Congress Cafe. When we got in, they said there was a 20% discount if you sat in the bar, so that's what we did. The food was delicious, the portion was generous, and the staff, friendly.
My friend and I shared a South Congress Seafood Parfait (market fresh fish, shrimp and bay scallops marinated ceviche-style in lime juice with fine diced chil├ęs and veggies on a bed of fresh guacamole with pepitas and crispy flour tortilla strips) and a South Congress Burger (certified black angus beef ground fresh daily, mesquite grilled to your liking and served on a fresh baked roll with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, homemade french fries and smoked gouda, crispy prosciutto & caramelized onion burger). The former one was my favorite. The only downside was that the food was so good that I ended up overeating... :)
