Bed Stuy's Down South Cafe is No More

Looks like today is the grand opening of Ma-n-Pop Soul Food which took over the spot that the legendary Down South Cafe formerly occupied. Taking a quick glance inside, I'd say the rough-hewn charm of Down South has been stamped out.

Ohhh..the down south cafe is one of the places I wanted to go! That sucks. But judging from the picture of Ma and Pop, it could be interesting. What is with that moustache? And is he wearing an Ascot? That might explain the fish and chips. Soul food with a British twist.

Absolutely totally -- I walked by there yesterday and looked in the window and wanted to cry. So sad.

Low Fat Donuts discovered
Holey Donuts!(tm) Ultra Low Fat Gourmet Donuts
New York, NY -- JAN 22 , 2007 – The low-fat donut has been the Holy Grail of the food industry. Food companies have been able to take most of the fat out of everything from cheese to Twinkies, but no one has succeeded in designing a marketable donut that dips below 4 grams of fat per serving before now.
Holey Donuts!™ announces a major innovation in the donut industry with the introduction of Ultra Low Fat Gourmet Donuts. Holey Donuts! has a unique patent pending process that avoids deep frying and produces a great tasting donut with only 3 to 4 grams of fat, unlike the 15 to 20 grams of fat in other donuts.
This little donut company from Brooklyn NY has been the secret rage with celeberties from Broadway to L.A!
Holey Donuts! has created an extended line of ultra low fat gourmet donuts and cinnamon buns. These products are guaranteed to please the palate of even the most discerning donut lover while dramatically lowering fat content with zero trans-fats yet nothing about these donuts tastes low fat, its just amazing. Significantly, Holey Donuts! Ultra Low Fat Gourmet Donuts and Cinnamon Buns contain zero trans- fats,zero cholesterol and no artificial sweeteners or fat substitutes, and they just taste great.
The secret lies in a unique cooking process which avoids deep-frying. Deep frying produces a fat laden greasy donut and now Holey Donuts has changed everything. In addition to the dramatic reduction in fat content, these donuts have as much as 25% less calories than other donuts"
Sold on the web at holeydonuts.net.
