Laid-back, Nordic-influenced AQ Kafé serves a menu that draws on traditional fare from Central, Northern and Eastern Europe, such as Smorgasbord platters, goulash and Swedish meatballs. The sweet-inclined can lean on house-made strudels, linzer tortes and pastries. The prix-fixe brunch on weekends is outstanding, offering the likes of a soft-boiled egg with smoked salmon, a Gouda croissant with ham, and a dish with great tyke appeal—jam-topped Swedish pancakes.
