- Cuisines: American, French, Local Traditional
NileGuide Expert Says:
Set behind--and including--an oak tree-shaded courtyard in the middle of a block on hip, trendy Magazine Street, Café Rani is known for its excellent salads and other healthy fare and makes a great place to lunch indoors or out during a Magazine Street shopping spree.
- While Magazine Street, is known more for its wide variety of shops and boutiques, there are also a few dining stops along the way. Café Rani is located in the old Salvation Army building, and is under the direction of Chef Lee Yates. An air of romance heightened by an upscale style is the perfect setting for its cutting-edge American cuisine. A mural of tropical dimensions adorns one of the walls. Patrons are seated in teak wood chairs as fleet-footed servers attend to their duties. From grilled chicken to salads to vegan delights, this cuisine is superb. The lunch and dinner menu is basically the same, but it has begun to introduce different dinner dishes. Much of its popularity, however, derives from its brunches, which provide a true al fresco experience.
