Anytime Cafe is one hot spot with its East-meets-West menu that features everything from pasta and pizza to fried rice and oxtail soup, as well as lunchtime staples like burgers and salads. After all, “variety is the spice of life,” says the old adage. Why not try to please as many palates as possible, especially here with our rich ethnic diversity?

Eclectic and fun, Anytime Cafe is hard to beat when you’re dining out with friends or family, as there’s sure to be something for everyone, even (hopefully) your picky child or that hard-to-please co-worker who seemingly doesn’t like or can’t eat practically everything.

There are so many choices that it’s hard to make a decision, and for those who choose not to eat meat or fish, there’s still a nice variety, especially if you love cheese — Margherita Pizza ($10.25), Caprese Spaghettini ($9.50) and even the ultimate comfort food, Grilled Cheese Sandwich ($5.50), are all available here just about anytime you get the craving.

Not a cheese eater? Anytime Cafe can still spice up your life — literally.

Spaghettini with Mushrooms and Garlic ($8.95) gets its zesty flavor from savory sliced garlic and whole chili peppers, and is finished with an olive oil-based sauce — and, for you vegans out there, owner Cindy Chong-Wong assures customers that it contains no meat, fish or cheese.

It’s a fiery dish that will wake up your taste buds without emptying your wallet — and with Anytime Cafe’s morning to late-night hours, you can enjoy it any … well, you know.
