        i'm sorry but i dont really like this name. Its just not for me but from the comments below its very popular so congrats.

        Hmm, not for me. Puns get very tiresome, very quickly.

        I love the play on words, but it does leave a *slightly* bad taste in this vegetarian's mouth. Also, "I'm a meat & potatoes man" is what one might say to justify their lack of openness to experimentation. what about MEET & DRINK?

      • Kathryn Ward commented  · 

        I'm vegetarian, but for some reason I think I'd still check this place out. Greet & Potatoes, as suggested, is still catchy and will still gets the concept across.

      • Jodi Larson commented  · 

        Nina, if Meet & Potatoes would put off the hippy/veggie people in town, consider modifying this suggestion to Greet & Potatoes. It still retains the fun and the cleverness and references the mission of the cafe without the homophonic implication of dead animals.

        You may be over thinking the vegetarian concern, unless all vegetarians can't spell. This place will make it and catch on becasue of good word of mouth and that will start out "there is this cool new cafe where you..." Serving meat will not come into the conversation. This name is clever, easy to remember and descriptive.

        Very cute but we definitely WON'T be serving meat, at least at the beginning, and are in a pretty hippy/vegetarian-friendly town... but I'll keep it in mind. Two people had this idea, thanks for sharing!!

      • Lisa commented  · 

        Nice, but will be a turn off to vegetarians!

      • Grelda commented  · 

        ok if it's only to eat... but here you won't be creating new acquaintances!

      • Steph Lambert commented  · 

        This really is a great name if you're looking for a feed - but doesn't suggest a point of interaction.

      • Steve Gardam commented  · 

        Yep, good idea for all the reasons below

      • Jodi Larson commented  · 

        This has a sense of fun and play, the idea that there is food (the beer will advertise itself, comparatively), and give a sense of clever creativity. This name also plays upon the idea of the "basics" --just as meat and potatoes is a catchphrase for the essentials of a meal or a concept, this cafe will get to the basicsm the essentials of human interaction and civil life.

        I love this name! Good Job, Matthew!

        this name seems memorable and marketable
