Down House is a chameleon-like neighborhood café and bar that changes with the hour and needs of the day, supplying a caffeine kick in the morning, craft cocktails late at night, and quality eats all day long. It's a hip and welcoming spot, with polished concrete floors, tufted leather couches, and tables and booths, plus quirky décor that includes boos by Charles Darwin and vintage scientific posters. A Southern-tinged American menu offers fried chicken and waffles and pork hash for breakfast; lunch and dinner highlights include the shrimp and grits and the kimchi burger with cheddar cheese and a sunny-side up egg. There are also craft beers on tap, many of them local, and classic cocktails such as Pimm's Cups and Sazeracs.
