Former Range pastry chef Michelle Polzine opened her new 20th Century Cafe (198 Gough) on July 5, transforming a former laundromat into a place for Eastern European pastries. Her delicate and decadent potato knish is likely to be a hit staple as the sweets change frequently and seasonally; current desserts on offer include a Russian honey cake, berry-pecan coffee cake, Regina peach torte and ice cream (vanilla, peach leaf and chicory), all served alongside Ethiopia Sidamo drip coffee, espresso, cappuccino and affogato. Polzine says the cash-only cafe will be closed today (July 8) to catch up on some administrative work, but will soon settle into a seven-day schedule with hours from 10 AM-6 PM.
