Try ‘Summer’ This Winter

Throughout last semester the closures of staples such as My Sister and I’s and Flippin Burgers suggested a sort of downtown downturn within the Bridgewater rotary. Thankfully, the latter has been given new life in the form of Summer Street Cafe. Boasting a long list of coffee flavors that rival nearby Marylou’s as well as a wide array of baked goods and creative takes on breakfast. This includes my first meal there, the Breakfast Pot Pie, a buttermilk biscuit with two eggs,bacon and sausage that was all covered in gravy. And the kicker? It was only $4.50! I paired that with a medium iced butter pecan iced coffee to make for a delicious, filling meal under $8. Amongst that aforementioned wide array of baked goods was a piece of cheesecake which I of course had to take to go and was oh-so worth it.

The small environment felt even smaller given how busy they were, definitely a good sign. Despite being so busy, however, the staff was incredibly attentive. An initially forgotten iced coffee not only resulted in the immediate delivery of said coffee but also two free M&M brownies. Then a fork drop was met with a new one within seconds. Abbey Marceau, a senior at BSU, was a big fan of their crinkle cut fries. Meanwhile Jared Ochenduszko, a forgotten coffee-orderer and fork-dropper, was impressed with the experience overall. “I’d definitely go back again. It’s fairly priced and close to campus.” Their predecessor, Flippin Burgers, was plagued with an inconsistent schedule where customers could never tell when they were open. Summer Street Cafe is not only open, their present and ready to serve our community with wit and charm.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Review

I’ll admit, I wasn’t a fan of the first Sonic the Hedgehog movie from pre-pandemic 2020, which I didn’t think was a hot take at the time, but oh was I wrong! As video game movies go, the film adaptation of beloved Sega character Sonic was weirdly accepted, some even dubbing it the best video […]

The Batman Review

Throughout Batman’s onscreen history, we’ve seemingly explored every angle the character has.  From the goofy surrealism of Adam West-era Batman, to Gothic camp of Tim Burton’s Batman,  and then the maximalist circus of Joel Schumacher’s Batman, ending with the gritty realism of Christopher Nolan’s Batman, the film history of the Dark Knight is full of […]
