Suniora’s Sidewalk Cafe

Posted by YAR 30 Nov 2009 10 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.
