This Rockford Midtown restaurant reopens with something for everyone – Rockford Register Star

ROCKFORD — The Spot Cafe has reopened in the city’s Midtown District with new ownership and a new menu meant to cater to anyone’s taste buds. 
The restaurant is an all-day breakfast, lunch and dinner spot that serves everything from biscuits and gravy and soul food dishes to traditional Caribbean fare, all made from scratch by the restaurant Haitian born owner.  
Since re-opening in January, owner and head chef Yveline Thompson says the cafe’s three-meat skillet and the biscuits and gravy have been their most popular items for breakfast, while the soups like chicken noodle and clam chowder have been a popular lunch item. 
The restaurant offers an intimate setting where customers can interact with Thompson and assistant cook Floyd Suggs at the breakfast bar.

Before Thompson took over, The Spot was known for its lunch specials. The new menu is Thompson’s way of making sure every customer feels like they have something to order. 
“Tell me what you want, and I’ll make it up for you. If you’re vegetarian I can prepare a dish for you,” Thompson said. 
Suggs, who previously worked in the catering industry, said he strives to create a relaxed environment at restaurant. 
“That’s one of the things we promote,” Suggs said. “We want to get to know you. We’ll grab your coffee, and we want you to feel at home.” 
The Spot Cafe is open 7:30 a,m, to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Thompson said hours could be extended in the summer.
