Centre St. Cafe US Map & Phone & Address

597 Centre St, Jamaica Plain; (617) 524-9217 This is a place to discover, tucked into a little storefront near Pond Street. Taking Jamaica Plain’s blend of cultures to heart with a nouvelle cuisine approach, Centre St. Cafe serves up huge, tasty platters from 5 P.M. to 10 p.M. each night

Start off with a zippy, tomatoey gazpacho ($1.90 a cup), fresh guaca-mole and chips ($4.25) or a Caesar salad ($3.95). Drinks include a homemade cranberry cooler (non-alcoholic; there is no liquor served) and gingerade, made fresh and tangy with lemon juice.

The menu always includes a que-sadilla of the day (brie?), as well as daily pasta and fish specials. The rest of the choices, all priced around $5.95 to $7.95, include a yummy Pad Thai and the South American Stir Fry, rice cooked up spicy in chili butter with black beans, onions, broccoli, and carrots. With many of these dishes you may add your choice of tofu ($1 extra), chicken ($2), or shrimp ($4).

Take some of the meal home and save room for dessert, which includes such doozies as chocolate mousse brownie pie ($2.75). Mine also advises you to arrive early, because after 7:30 or so it’s hard to get one of the eight tables and you’ll have to wait outside or place an order to take out Centre St. also serves up a big brunch from 9 am. to 3 pm. on weekends; most selections run $4.95 to $6.95.
