The unbeatable combination of chocolate, caramel, and pecans here reaches its epiphany. Cafe Latte's turtle cake is so beloved that the restaurant has printed postcards featuring its picture.

The sweetness of the chocolate in a tin roof tart is balanced by buttery caramel and and a dense layer of crisp, salted redskin peanuts.

A bowl of chicken chili is here accompanied by a Romano cheese-infused breadstick from the Cafe Latte bakery.

Can you see just how moist the three layers of this cake are? Each slice is huge and that, combined with its essential richness, makes this one whopper of a dessert.

Cafe Latte offers a variety of Caesar-style salads, including traditional and a house version that adds artichoke hearts, Greek olives, and sliced tomatoes to the mix. Each individual salad is made to order, so you can specify if you want a little more of this or that.

The cafeteria line is getting crowded just before noon. In our experience, though, there is seldom a wait. Sandwiches and salads are made fast, and soups dished out with alacrity.
