There's a brand-new cafe in town. Called Cafe Alma, the new arrival is located at 888 Innes Ave. in the Bayview.

According to Cafe Alma's website, the business "was created to provide the India Basin and Bayview community with a delicious, unique and health-conscience gourmet food hub that utilizes the incredible resources of the neighborhood."

On the menu at this counter-service spot, you will find all-day breakfast options like house-baked granola, an open-faced egg sandwich with arugula, and savory bread pudding with kale, cheddar and caramelized onion. Other menu items include soups, salads and sandwiches made on locally baked bread. There's also a selection of coffee and smoothies to drink.

Cafe Alma also uses its 5,000-square-foot space to host events, including guest chef evenings and pop-up shops featuring local artisans.

With a five-star rating out of five reviews on Yelp so far, the new arrival is on its way to developing a local fan base.

David T., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Nov. 23, wrote, "Drinks are good, food smells great (haven't tried it yet) and the people are super nice."

Yelper Laura S. added, “My first visit was brief, but my coffee and gluten-free granola bowl with plain Greek yogurt and bananas were perfect. Staff couldn't be any nicer."

Interested? Cafe Alma is open from 7 a.m.–3 p.m. on Tuesday-Friday and 8 a.m.–2 p.m. on Saturday. (It's closed on Sunday and Monday.)
