New: Marketplace at Acacia
Albert Hall opened the Marketplace today at St. Philip’s Plaza. I have yet to try it but the menu looks good. Here’s a sampling of what’s available: breakfast burros and breakfast sandwiches $5.50, quiche/oatmeal/yogurt fruit $3.50-$4.95, sandwiches & panini $5 to $9.50, coffee, bakery, juices, build your own salads and grab-n-go dinner. The Marketplace is open daily from 7 a.m. 232-0124
Green with Eclectic Pizza
From opening day, owners Renee and Steve Kreager insisted that all food served at Eclectic Pizza be created with special care. To that end, all of their dishes are made using organic (locally produced when possible) ingredients; they do not use any trans fats and offer one of the few gluten free pizzas in the city. All their wines are organic as well. Within the restaurant they use all recyclable products from hand towels and cleaners to take out containers and napkins. Visit Eclectic Pizza at 7065 E Tanque Verde and check out their fabulous food and service. I ate there recently on a busy Saturday lunch and our server worked the room and was consistently good. I love to support a local place with a passion; 886-0484.
