Suniora’s Sidewalk Cafe

Posted by YAR 30 Nov 2009 7 Comments

Suniora’s Sidewalk Cafe recently opened where Miller’s Grocery used to be, at 200 S. Lamar St in the City Centre building. ┬áSuniora herself is a former employee of Miller’s Grocery, who bought the restaurant from the former owners. (JFP). I had never been to the restaurant before it became Suniora’s so I can’t compare the two, but I do like it as it is now.

The amount of food I got for $7 was the first thing I liked about the restaurant. This is the plate lunch; the day I went, the meat options were smoked or smothered chicken. I chose smothered. The chicken was juicy and I liked the sauce (especially for cornbread dipping), but I thought the sides were the best part of the meal.

The dressing was my favorite side, but then again I am easy to please when it comes to dressings and stuffings. ┬áThis one had a pleasantly moist and dense texture. I also loved the greens, which were mellow and on the sweeter side. The yams were a nice change from a lot of the more dessert-like yam sides (which, don’t get me wrong, I also like)—these were only lightly sweetened and spiced, and not mashed or cooked to a mush, so they retained more actual yam taste and texture.

Suniora’s also offers pizza and a salad bar. I may not get around to trying them because passing up the hot bar food wouldn’t be easy, but they did seem to be popular when I was there.

    The one downside I’ve experienced so far with Suniora’s is the pizza, although I think that’s more of a symptom of expecting it to be like Miller’s.

    Miller’s had large, deli-style pizza slice specials. I ordered Suniora takeout recently and asked for 2 slices of pizza. When they arrived, they were small, like the size slice you’d get from a DiGiorno, and not particularly good.

    However, now I know what to expect, and will try one of the hot plates on its own merits.
