#136: Ewing Cafe

[Writer's note: Sledding & skiing are no longer options since the snow has melted (somewhat), and we're a long way from being able to dine al fresco (comfortably).  Spring seems far off, and the next holiday to celebrate is Mardi Gras, so our answer to what to do in South Bend, at least for the next week, is to check out some local bars in the area.]
You can't miss the big letters and glowing neon signs covering the front of the Ewing Cafe.  It's one of those places where the sign for it is almost as big as the place itself.  The small size makes it a perfect stop for a low-key mid-week drink.  You feel at ease even if you're the only one in the place, but they still fit a single pool table in there for all you pool sharks.  The friendly bartenders/owners are another reason worth checking out this bar.  They'll make you feel like a regular, even if you're just passing through town.

Where: 111 Ewing Ave.
Tip: Although they do serve basic bar food here, if you're craving something breakfast-y, the Kitchenette is right around the corner.
