Diversity is an angel of the city ...

Jazz singer and city girl, I take advantage of all DFW’s diversity. Cuisine transforms eating from a self-perpetuating function to a noble experience. Thanks, restauranteur neighbors, for helping me refine and broaden my food experience!


Bicycle Cafe

 7510 E Northwest Hwy
Dallas, TX

Bicycle Cafe' Hits the Spot

Fresh fruits and vegetables, lean meats, whole grains and wonderful combinations make the wheels turn in this bicycle themed cafe’. Add select roasts, excellent plain iced tea, fresh juices made to order and a beer and wine bar and BC has it all. The service has always been quick and friendly, too. Northwest Highway at Buckner is a tough location to open a business right now with the new uplifted NWH still under construction. But proximity to the White Rock Trail, beloved of Dallas cyclers, makes it a calculated gamble. I’m rooting for this neighborhood gem because they have exactly what I want to eat when I’m out for an extended ride past lunch or dinner.

Quinua Bowl

I chose tilapia to top this bowl of warm quinua tossed with grilled onions, bell pepper, tomato and fresh pineapple. A very nice combination that nevertheless could have benefited from a pungent veggie, perhaps jalapeno or ginger. The raw strips of spinach used for garnish were inspired on this fresh bowl, and the dressing was very good.

Greek Shrimp

Simple tasty grilled shrimp on a big bed of raw baby spinach tossed with fresh strawberries, slivered almonds, and dried cranberries; choice of dressing. Bountiful, fresh, perfectly balanced tastes.

Cooler weather makes me hungry … maybe it’s time for some pungent Indian dishes!



Friday’s a great day to eat out. So what if there are more people in the restaurants – more entertainment!
