Fried Chicken sandwich at Dierk’s Midtown Cafe in Santa Rosa

There’s good news and there’s, well, still pretty good news about the opening of Dierk’s Midtown Cafe (the offshoot of the brunch-tacular Dierk’s Parkside): The veggie stack is back, if you time it right you can get still-warm pie and if you time it wrong there’s still really good cold pie.

Or maybe cake.

For fans of Mark Dierkheising’s original Santa Rosa eatery, the recently-opened Midtown Cafe is familiar territory with additions like a spicy Asian soba salad with Harissa dressing, an exotic red rice salad with ginger-soy dressing that’s  healthy and refreshing, the produce-friendly Talbot sandwich with vegetarian sausage and the much-loved grilled vegetable stack (which i have been dreaming of for days) with a tower of eggplant, tomatoes, spinach and onions bathed in saffron tomato sauce. With a blob of goat cheese ever-so-slowly melting on top.

There are, of course, plenty of bacony, chicken-fried-steaky bits as well.

With both naughty and nice dishes served all day (from 7a.m. to 3p.m.) you can have your cake and five servings of veggies, too.

Dierk’s Midtown Cafe, 1422 Fourth St., Santa Rosa, 545-2233.

    Have enjoyed Dierks Parkside for years…and Midtown is so nice. Many brunch/lunch offerings, with good solid standards and new standouts, featuring local seasonal produce. Arturo is amazing in the kitchen. Fantastic food. Excellent, caring service applied equally to the businessmens lunch or the wiggly childs pancakes has me leaving happy and sated. AND Midtown is serving up locally roasted Bella Rossa coffee.

    We still miss the previous Midtown folks with their great ribs and slightly quirky take on just about anything on the menu. Can’t wait to let Dierk’s show us what they’ve got.

    Thrilled to have been to this second location. Brunch there last week was awesome. Love the menu, the decor, and the service. All first rate, what we’ve come to expect from Mark, et al.

    I’m so excited that Dierk’s Midown is open! I’ve been there twice for a weekend brunch, and the staff & food are just as great as at Parkside. On a nice, sunny day the patio out back is wonderful, and because it’s so new, there wasn’t even a wait for a table.
