Divine Cafe had me the second I read “RED VELVET BELGIAN WAFFLE” on their menu. Unfortunately, it ($7.25) didn’t live up to my expectations. I was thinking it would be a magical cakey, sweet mix with crisp edges. But, it just tasted like any other waffle. The only thing that screamed “red velvet” was its bright red appearance.
Luckily there are other dishes that make this place worth visiting. The chicken tacos ($7.50) were topped with a chipotle sauce, black beans, and pineapple slaw and were enveloped in wonderfully crisp house-made tortillas that are the star of the dish.
The “big-ass roast beef hoagie” ($8.75) is a large portion of tender slices of beef in a soft, warm hoagie roll. It’s a tasty sandwich that’s topped with provolone, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, mayo and a red wine vinaigrette. It’s also accompanied by some amazingly delicious fries.
The chicken salad sandwich ($6.50) was good but the bread was dry and hard. Their chocolate chip cookie is ridiculously large and a great value at $1.25 but tasted too sugary and gritty for my tastes.
Divine Cafe is located in an industrial park (in a building that also houses their catering service) off of Valley View, just north of Sunset. While their food can be hit or miss, it’s a better lunch option than many other spots in the area.
